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

497
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.

Biogas renewables 

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.”

I started trading with COINSFM and I have deposited over $128K in total over a 4 month period and my account was about 290k at the best. of course i should have withdrawn when at the top. Most money was won by the help of my Account Manager named David Garcia and in background was the Senior Account Manager Oliver Martin. One Thursday evening, David contacted me after a long break and stated now was the time to make some real money again. After about 4 – 5 hrs the result was a loss of everything except an active trade on XRP worth 80k. I then agreed a recovery plan with Oliver Martin stupid as I was. This plan should be a very low risk plan based on weekly coin buying. The recovery looked promising until Martin introduced me to a total maniac with the name of Rothschield which he claimed would help me get my account back on top. After 2 hours of trading the account was empty again with the exception of a long term stock trading. All in all I’m an idiot trusting these guys. I am 100% sure that I was targeted the day I made my first deposit. When they felt that I was empty (no more to deposit) they decided to strike and did their best to empty the account. I learnt the hard way, all my savings was gone in a flash. They milked me for all my savings and showed some real good money to convince me. I tried to report to my bank and i was told that it was too late and there’s nothing they could do. The journey on recovery started, I tried few online company that i believed they could help with the law but it was all a failed attempt. Luckily for me, i found a website on google talking about forensic investigation and asset recovery. i was very careful not to fall for a second scam. I asked them all the possible questions till i was convinced then i decided to try since you miss every opportunity you don’t take. A couple of weeks later, I was told to send my account details and i got my money back. it was unbelievable and ever since i have always tried to spread the news about this company- SCAMRECOUP, COM They offer a full range of services as an investigative firm. Big companies and high-net individual seek their services all around the world. In case you are looking for way to get back your money from fraudulent online investment you can send them an email. I hope this helps!

I was married for 7years with 2kids and we livest of the house and still went ahead to file for divorce. I pleaded and tried everything but still, nothing worked. The breakthrough came when someone introduced me to this wonderful, great spell caster Dr. Murugu who eventually helped me out.
