Outline of GHG Mitigation Activity

In this project, biogas derived from pineapple residue is utilized as fuel for gas engines and boilers to generate power and steam at the two pineapple canning factories (Surallah and Polomolok) of Dole Philippines, Inc.
This project aims to produce renewable energy by utilizing the pineapple waste which has been discarded. It contributes to reducing greenhouse gases emissions as well as lowering electricity cost for Dole Philippines, Inc.

Expected GHG Emission Reductions

52,156 tCO2/year

Power Generation:
= ((Reference Power Consumption) [MWh/year]
    − 0 [MWh/year]) × (Emission Factor) [tCO2/MWh]
2,640 tCO2/year (Surallah)
9,241 tCO2/year (Polomolok)

Boilers:
= (Reference CO2 Emissions) [tCO2/year]
    − (Project CO2 Emissions) [tCO2/year]
14,571 tCO2/year (Surallah)
25,704 tCO2/year (Polomolok)
