Outline of GHG Mitigation Activity

At a new infusion manufacturing factory in the existing infusion manufacturing base of PT. Otsuka Indonesia under the Otsuka Group, a new type of high efficiency autoclave, which fulfills the Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and realizes energy and resource saving, is introduced to contribute to the solution of global environmental issues as well as to assure the safety of pharmaceutical products.
Since the hot water to be injected into the autoclave is maintained at a high temperature, both the amount of steam charged in a batch unit and consumption of natural gas (CNG) required for steam generation are reduced. In addition, pure water used in the sterilization process is reused, so that the amount of pure water is also greatly saved.

Expected GHG Emission Reductions

8,806 tCO2-eq./year

=(Reference CNG consumption volume
    – project CNG consumption volume) X Emission factor of CNG.
