  • Fatty Alcohol Distillery Tower Energy Saving Project Applying Process Innovation can reduce the use of steam in the distillation tower. This further reduces the energy needed to generate the heat required to generate steam.
  • Optimize Steam project at the Ejector System by using the Steam Ejector to create a vacuum in the production process to reduce the amount of steam energy and energy to produce steam, which also helps reduce costs.

As a result of our commitment to energy efficiency management, along with initiating and implementing energy conservation projects continuously, the Company has increased the ability to reduce energy consumption according to the set goals.
