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

305
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.”

Finding out that your husband or wife has been unfaithful isn’t just a time of profound heartbreak and shock, it’s also a time of intense confusion . At certain points desperate measures are our only resort and we take them, finding a trustworthy infiltrator can be a lifeline and I sure used one to save my relationship, business and sanity. I was having real life problems when my friend recommended White to me. I contacted him because my business partner was shaking me, stealing money from the business. Also my spouse was always up at odd hours clearly this is a sign that my spouse is cheating, so the hacker cloned/hacked into their devices and granted me total access to their devices without their knowledge. I was overwhelmed that I could see my business partner hidden finances that were off records and read their old and new text messages, see new and d pictures, emails, call logs, Facebook, messenger, WhatsApp, Snapchat, GPS location in real time among other things off my spouse phone. If you require the services of a private investigator (EC council certified personnel), you can speak to White here WHITEHATSTECH AT GMAIL DOT COM. You can be sure to thank me later

How do I appreciate [email protected] ? Raylink Cyber services helped in raising my credit card limit from $10000 to $20,000 limit in couple of days. They also fixed my bad credit report including Chex system and erasing the 2 evictions I had from my report. My score was as low 420 but after my encounter with Raylink Cyber services it went up to 783 which is an excellent point. All these happened within four weeks. I don’t really know how to appreciate this group of hackers than to tell the world about their good work. I sole recommend Raylink Cyber services for those of you who have similar issues.

(Mortgage trade lines, Installment trade lines, Revolving credit cards and Auto trade lines) on my report, to my greatest surprise after confiding with TROVIAN all the negative report on my profile were wiped off and my score raised to 809. Now I got the mortgage and I’m very happy. You can contact them on EMAIL: [email protected] cell: +1 (424) 307 4562 for similar problems.

My credit has been down for a long time. I\'ve put off doing anything about it. A week ago, after seeing posts about [email protected] on Trulia, I ped a messaged at night while I was at work. I wasn’t expecting a reply until the next day, they replied within few minutes, and we put up time to consult over the phone. After a lengthy and informative conversation with them, I felt confident in my decision. Yesterday, I received news that all my collection accounts had been ped! Dismissed, and removed from my credit report and my score jumped to 799. The hype is real and I\'m excited for the future and my improved credit score & financial freedom. Here is their working contact: +1 (424) 307 4562

I had to leave this post here as a sign of gratitude since that is one of the least BRIXTON asked of me. From my calculations, I made $25,200 in 1-week trading but unfortunately lost it all after I tried to participate in an air, I became very devastated until I read some wonderful reviews about WIZARD BRIXTON. I feel so much joy right now because BRIXTON did come through for me by getting my money back from those scam artists, my advice is for you to be mindful of the links you click online to avoid losing your money. The experience of losing your money to a scammer is not funny no matter how much. Feel free to ask me more [email protected] or contact WIZARD BRIXTON via EMAIL : WIZARDBRIXTON(AT) GMAIL (DOT) COM WHATS-APPS : (+1- /807-23 ) 4-0428 .

Last 4 month’s l had a lot of inquiries on my credit, a few collections and an eviction. I needed to buy a house in about 1-2 months so. I needed to get my credit ASAP fixed, l saw positive reviews about SKYPLUS760 CREDIT SOLUTION on credit Karma here so I contacted them (Skyplus760 credit solution at gmail dot com). Within 7 business working days, they help me removed eviction, cleared up all inquiries, collections and raised my score from 539 to 809 excellent score. I got a home after 2 weeks, l now live comfortably with my family. Cheers…
