FENC established the “Energy Task Force” to manage sustainability issues, including energy, water resources and waste management. The approaches that the Company adopts include establishing energy conservation and carbon reduction goals, appropriate special budget, promote energy/water conservation and waste reduction campaigns, and regularly review progress. Additionally, the Energy Task Force held the Cross-Strait Energy Conservation Technical Conference and established an expert advisory group. They provide opportunities for sharing success stories and recommendations for improvements among production sites. FENC was awarded the Climate Leadership Awards of the 2018 Taiwan Corporate Sustainability Awards. This particular award aims to encourage corporations to monitor, manage, disclose and reduce GHG emission.

 
   

 

 
  Chosen as Outstanding Circular Technology Enterprise by Industrial Development Bureau, MOEA  

 

 

In 2018, Industrial Development Bureau of MOEA selected companies that have performed well in the development of technology that embodies circular economy based on a set of criteria. FENC’s performance has been remarkable on innovating circular technology and perfecting its quality in the textile and polyester industries. The Company was selected as “Outstanding Circular Technology Enterprise” and was invited to speak during the 2018 International Conference on Circular Economy on June 13th, 2018.

Industry experts and international government entities were among the invitees of this conference. FENC spoke on the topic of “Technological Innovation of the Textile and Polyester Industry” and talked about FENC’s PET bottle recycling system as well as the use of recycled PET bottles to produce environmental yarn, bottles and food packaging.

 
   

 

 
  Hukou Mill Received Energy Saving Benchmarking Silver Award, and the Title, GHG Voluntary Reduction Award for the Third Consecutive Year  

 

 

Hukou Mill had been promoting energy conservation and GHG reduction campaigns for a long time and has won multiple recognitions. In 2018, the plant was awarded the Energy Saving Benchmarking Silver Award for the first time. In addition, the plant won the third consecutive “GHG Voluntary Reduction Award”. Hukou Mill is the only textile company winning both awards. Energy Saving Benchmarking Award evaluates contenders based on the establishment of energy management system, performance on energy conservation and carbon reduction, and summer energy saving measures. Criteria for GHG Voluntary Reduction Award include the establishment of GHG management system, GHG emission reduction performance and the innovativeness of emission reduction measures. The main source of GHG emission and energy consumption at Hukou Mill is electricity. Therefore, the plant features the slogan, “excess reduction, high efficiency, consolidation and integration, variable volume”, to promote energy conservation measures while achieving GHG reduction. For instance, Hukou Mill focused on “excess reduction” and “variable volume” when implementing the energy conservation project for the dedusting system. The plant installed automatic shut-off valve to shut off excess energy for the negative pressure exhaust and change the control of the exhaust into variable frequency. The smart air conditioning project incorporates the “variable volume” concept by changing the fan coil unit/return air fan into variable frequency control, which makes adjustments according to the negative pressure on site and exterior air. The system conserves 26% energy. Hukou Mill saved 4.5 million kWh of electricity in 2017, and 3.5 million kWh in 2018, which is the equivalent of reducing 4,400 t-CO2e in GHG emission in two years.

Note:The emission factor for the calculation of GHG emission of electricity is 0.554 t-CO2e/1,000 kWh

  OPTC and FEIS Were Designated as Water-Saving Enterprise in Shanghai  

 

 

OPTC and FEIS answered the call for water conservation set forth in “Regulations of the Shanghai Municipality on Water Saving” with avid engagement in promoting water conservation campaigns to reduce resource consumption. In 2018, FEIS and OPSC were chosen as Water-saving Enterprise in Shanghai, which is recognition toward their exceptional performance in water conservation. Criteria for water-saving enterprise include quantitative and determinative indices as well as the promotion of wastewater reuse. Scoring over 90 out of the total score of 110 qualifies a corporation as water-saving enterprise. FEIS and OPSC scored phenomenally between 104 and 105, including perfect scores for many indices. Aside from a sound water conservation system, FEIS and OPSC installed rainwater and reclaimed water treatment facilities, replacing tap water with recycled water. In 2018, the two corporations recycled 1.15 million kL of water per year.

  FEAV Was Awarded the Highest Honor of Green Enterprise  

 

 

To encourage corporations to focus on environmental protection, Bình Dương Department of Natural Resources and Environment, Vietnam rates “Green Enterprise” twice a year to reward corporate efforts that have exceled in environmental protection. In 2018, FEAV was awarded the hard-earned title, Green Enterprise, which is the highest honor. Award criteria are compliance with environmental protection regulations and performance in energy and resource conservation. In addition to being law-abiding, FEAV is also reaping the rewards from various conservation measures, including replacing factory-wide lighting from fluorescent light to LED, recycling and reusing excess boiler heat, and setting automatic timer to switch the air compressor on and off. The total electricity conserved for the year amounted to 900,000 kWh, which reduced annual GHG emission by 513t-CO2e/year, thus winning top recognition.

Note:The emission factor for the calculation of GHG emission of electricity is 0.570 t-CO2e/1,000 kWh
