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.”

Nothing is worst in life, than living with a bad credit score it always feels killing yourself if you’ve ever been in this before, I had Credit score of 485 and still yet it was tough getting a loan to start up something. I had 4 Capital one credit debts, Criminal record of 4years ago shown on Experian, Mortgage loan to clear before 5th of next month it was really terrible. Until a friend talked to me about TROVIAN CREDIT REPAIR Company, She met online who wiped all her debts. I contact them at [email protected] +1 (424) 307 4562 they responded and requested some details which I gave them, they assured me everything would be done in 5 days, I paid an affordable amount before they started the job, Now I’m happy with all debts cleared and the criminal record was removed also my score was raised to 799, now the loan is approved to start a business. You’re indeed a savior to me. Thanks so much.

I believe this information will be very useful to someone out there because someone might still be in the same situation as me. I have been looking for a way to spy on my husband’s phone for quite some time but sadly most of the information available has not been useful. Tried some apps and software and none worked. I found this page some days ago but didn’t take it seriously. because I saw different comments and I got confused and I don\'t know who is real or not. So I summon the courage to contact a Wizard here his name Wizard Brixton I send an email to him on WIZARDBRIXTON AT GMAIL DOT COM for help and they came through. I now have access to my husband’s iPhone and I found sufficient proof that he is seeing different women. Kindly reach out to him right now for a good job Email: WIZARDBRIXTON AT GMAIL DOT COM Number : (+) 1807234 0428

I must say this is the fastest way to rebuild your credit score through this reliable special company TROVIAN CREDIT REPAIR I got divorced 5 years ago and it has been terrifying ever since. My ex let our house be foreclosed after I moved out, I had a credit score of 580, earn $80k and more than $3,000 in debt. I needed to get approved for a home loan in Texas. But I was turned down by a lot of companies due to poor credit. Then I got referred to [email protected] OR PHONE +1 (424) 307 4562 by a realtor. I saved their contact and mailed them for score increase .After making payments for the job my credit was cleaned and my score was increase to 799plus in less than 7days. This filled me with so much joy. I wish I contacted them earlier I wouldn’t have suffered to restore my credit. Quickly contact them on the above details if you require your credit fix.

I opened my first credit card 8 years back with capital one. I was advised to use it a lot and pay it off before due time. After some years I lost my job and I was on able to meet up, which affected my report. I had some credit debts, utility bills, inquires and some collective items on my report. I came across a review on the YouTube about a credit expert company called TROVIAN CREDIT REPAIR which got my attention. I contacted them, we settled with a price then they start working on my credit, in less than 7 days I received a message that some changes as been done on my report. They cleared everything and pay off my debts and also raised my credit to 799 from the initial 580. Mail them with the following [email protected] PHONE +1 (424) 307 4562. They are 100% legit.
