General Mills Turns to Biogas to Help Meet 100% Renewable Electricity Goal

744
General Mills has set a goal of 100% renewable electricity by 2030 as part of the RE100 global corporate initiative. To achieve this, the company is investing in renewable energy efforts to support the company’s environmental objectives. Examples include two large-scale wind farms which will produce renewable energy credits (RECs), and anaerobic digestion (which captures and uses methane from waste to generate electricity). Internationally, the company is investigating renewable projects where it has energy-intensive operations.

“Signing on to a movement like RE100 extends our commitment to renewable electricity globally, across our supply chain,” said John Church, chief supply chain officer at General Mills. “We know we’re able to drive more widespread action and impact when we make bold commitments. And we’re proud to be among those corporations that are taking the initiative to use scale for good because together, we can secure more measurable and meaningful results.” 

In 2015, General Mills was the first company across any sector to publish a goal approved by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) to reduce absolute greenhouse gas emissions across the company’s full value chain (Scopes 1, 2 and 3) by 28% by 2025. Through 2019, General Mills has reduced the greenhouse gas emissions of its extended value chain by 14% compared to its 2010 baseline.

The renewable energy projects currently underway, as well as those yet to be implemented, will enable the company to reduce Scope 2 emissions in its global operating facilities. Projects underway thus far include:

In North America, the company has a 1.6 megawatt generator fueled by the anaerobic biodigester at its Murfreesboro plant in Tennessee. Self-renewing bacteria in the biodigester convert plant process wastewater from its yogurt and dough production into the biogas fuel. Power and heat from the generator are fed directly back into the yogurt processing facility to reduce its annual grid power and natural gas purchases by up to 20%.

In South America, the company has a 335 kilowatt biogas regeneration plant at its Paranavai Yoki location. This plant is one of the largest manufacturing plants in Brazil where electric power is produced from biogas generated by the site’s wastewater treatment system. The power is used by the plant with any excess sent to the local electric utility, reducing the company’s power spend by 30%.

In Europe, the company has a 195 kilowatt capacity biogas regeneration plant at its Arras, France Häagen-Dazs production facility. The plant uses electric power produced from generators that are fueled by renewable biogas from the site’s process wastewater treatment system. When the plant doesn't use it, the power generated from the biogas is sold to the local utility grid, while heat in the form of hot water is recovered to reduce natural gas consumption at the ice cream plant.  

“We are pleased to welcome General Mills to RE100,” said Sam Kimmins, head of RE100. “It is great to see such an influential business commit to 100% renewable electricity globally. General Mills’ leadership sends a strong signal to the wider industry that corporations can make a major contribution to the creation of tomorrow’s clean, resilient energy systems.”

It still feels incredible that my life has changed and I thank Lord Zakuza everyday for his help. It is the best feeling in the world knowing that I am financially secure. Lord Zakuza prayed and prepared a lottery spell for me and he gave me some numbers to play on the Euromillions game. I played the game and I was sent an email after 3 days regarding that I was the winner of ONE MILLION POUNDS. So I rang them up and they confirmed that I was the very lucky one to have won on the EuroMillions Raffle draw. I was shocked, surprised and couldn\'t believe what my eyes saw and what my ears were earing and I stopped work at where I was a working as a midwife and ever since then, I have been winning in every game I played whenever I decide to. My life and that of my family has changed ever since that day and I want to say a very big thank you to Lord Zakuza. WhatsApp him for help via +1 (740) 573-9483 or email: ( lordzakuza7 @ gmail. com ) or visit his website on: lordzakuzaspells.com

I strongly recommend METR0NET Credit Solution for any kind of credit repair. They helped us out so much after already paying a self-acclaimed credit expert who basically just took our money and did nothing for a year, we found METRONET on the internet and they immediately showed results and even guided us on what our best solution for our trade in for a new vehicle would be with a lower approximate % and not to mention how well they inform you and explain to you everything that\'s going on with your credit. Thank you METRONET for all your help. Text them via (205) 518 3032 / metronetcreditsolution@gmail.com.

HOW I RECOVERED MY LOST COINS. I’m sure not everyone out there have learned about Michael Murphy. I\'m so glad I met this amazing RECOVERY SPECIALIST after doing my research online. A scammer on discord contacted me and tried to lure me into a binary options investment scheme which I was reluctant to join, this guy later found his way to my email address after exchanging contact and stole all of my coins worth about $40k and I was absolutely devastated, because I felt I was careful enough, but you can never be too careful with these rippers. I sprung into action, I did some personal research and I read great testimonies about an excellent and very prompt recovery agent known as Michael Murphy - contact address [Michealmurphy@repairman.com/Whatsapp: +1 (925) 238 2217]. I provided Michael with basic information and requirements after I reached out to him, he swung into action and retrieved all I lost funds within a week of investigative and hacking services . I am so excited for this great favor and I promised to tell the whole world about this great guy “Michael”. Be sure to contact Michael via the above contact info if you are seeking to get back any digital currency lost to crypto scammers
