We ask the head of GIA’s Manufacturing and Industrial practice and presenter of the webinar on January 25, 2011, Peter Davey, for his thoughts on sustainable manufacturing in Asia.
Have manufacturers in Asia embraced sustainable manufacturing practices?
“We find that more and more manufacturers in Asia are embracing the concept. We see the growing adoption of renewable energy sources or use of gas-capture and starch extraction procedures.
While financial costs and lack of education have played a part, the main dilemma faced by the largest players has been whether to wait for better environmental data before acting, or to act now using less trusted data, with the risk that their efforts will ultimately be found to be inappropriate or unnecessary. More companies are beginning to act now.
As a reference, 50% of the 20 Asian manufacturers polled in a recent GIA industry survey said that “conservation of finite resources in terms of power and water” and “reducing carbon footprint” are top priorities for 2011-2012. So hopefully we will start to see even more interest in Sustainable manufacturing.
In the webinar, where we provide an overview of sustainable manufacturing in South East Asia, Greater China, Japan and South Korea, we will also showcase three Asian businesses implementing sustainable manufacturing practices.”
“We will showcase Bia Thanh Hoa from Vietnam, Jiangsu Farun Group from China and Chokeyoenyong Industries in Thailand.
Bia Thanh Hoa is a brewery in Vietnam that has implemented waste heat recovery practices and thermodynamic enhancements.
Jiangsu Farun Group, a global glass producer that is headquartered in Jiangsu Province in China, is one example of how to reduce dependency on fossil fuel for electricity generation and improve plant energy efficiency.
For Chokeyoenyong Industries, we look at how its starch production plant operates a methane capture system to harvest methane.”
“We will discuss the views and drivers behind Sustainable Manufacturing in South East Asia, Greater China, Japan and South Korea, and provide the outlook for Sustainable Manufacturing in the region.”
