Environmental Management

Sahacogen & Affiliates have defined environmental objectives committed to continual develop the environmental management system to ensure the effectiveness and meet the internaltional standard, as well as running business with environmental and social responsibility.

Water Management

Sahacogen places the importance of the effective water management throughout all production processes, from the source of water for production input until the preservation of the environment after production process. The company therefore strictly adheres to regulations of water management and considers the impacts of water consumption to the nearby communities. On the other hand, Sahacogen also plans to prevent the risk of water shortage which may interrupt the power plant operations.

Key Performance

The reduction of water consumption in production process
m3 / year

Air Emission Management

Strictly implement air pollution management measures as follows:

  • The emission monitoring system is installed at the stacks of the power plant for measuring the amount of TSP, SO2 , and NO2 emitted to the atmosphere. The results indicated that the amounts of those pollutants are within the legal limits.
  • Installed the emission monitoring system in the communities’ area nearby the power plant, composing environmental monitoring reports in every 6 months for the related sectors and public to ensure that the air qualities are according to the standards and regulations.
  • The Electrostatic Precipitators (ESP) with 99.5% of particulate-collecting efficiency was installed at the biomass power plant of Sahacogen Green and Sahagreen Forest to prevent the dust pollutions. This makes the quality of the air emitted from the power plant’s stacks be according to the standards and regulations, as well as safety and environmental friendly.

Key Performance

Noise Pollution Management

  • Appropriate design and install the machines and equipment that may cause the noise pollution including eplanning inspection and preventive maintenance. Plant bushy trees surrounding the power plant as green belt for buffering sound and wind that help to control noise level within the standards and regulations.
  • Appropriate design and install the machines and equipment that may cause the noise pollution including eplanning inspection and preventive maintenance. Plant bushy trees surrounding the power plant as green belt for buffering sound and wind that help to control noise level within the standards and regulations. Designate 3 check-points for measuring the noise level; the sources of noise in the power plant, the control room of the power plant and the boundaries of the power plant. The noises are controlled within the standards and regulations, with routine measuring the noise level in every 3 months. Provide ear muffs for employees to wear when working in areas with noise level exceeding 80 Decibels. Employees are required to wear the ear muffs when working in that areas which warning signs were installed to remind them of this regulation.

Waste Management

Sahacogen is dedicated to manage waste according to the legal standards and the policies of each power plant. Wastes are divided into two categories: hazardous waste and non-hazardous waste. The company’s waste management practices are as followings :

  1. Hazardous wastes are those that can be harmful to the environment, such as transformer oil, lubricants and chemical containers. These wastes are disposed according to the approved procedures to the agencies authorized by the Department of Industrial Works.
  2. Non-hazardous wastes are general wastes such as leftovers, wood, paper, wires, plastic bags, and constructionmaterials. These wastes are classified before disposing to bury according to the standards and regulations or appropriately recycling. The waste bank project was established to purchase recyclable wastes from employees in order to foster employees to utilize resources effectively.

2565 Performance

Waste must be categorized both in office and plant, as well as the employees can bring their waste from home for donation or exchange
The company sells those waste to purchaser for recycling.
This is another way to save the world for help reduce the amount of waste in the office which also helps to reduce global warming problems caused by greenhouse gases.

Climate Change

The company realizes and participates tackling climate change issue including promote GHG management in company policy that beneficial to the organization, sociality, and Thailand environment. GHG management committee is assigned to implement the target through the company intention by awareness of environment upon the sense of social responsilibity as “good environment beneficial to sociality.”

To improve energy efficiency
Utilizing the innovative technology combining with appropriate energy management
To apply eco-friendly clean energy

Carbon offset
  • Energy Innovative: participate in renewable energy and GHG reduction project. For instance, International Renewable Enegry Certificate (IREC), Joint Crediting Mechanism, and Clean Development Mechanism (CDM)
  • Joint Crediting Mechanism (JCM)
  • Arrange in house activity under the topic of reducing GHG in organization. To participate in neighboring community, government sector, and partners to enlarge green area for carbon sink by replanting

International Renewable Energy Certificate (I-REC)

  • The company has registered Internation Renewable Energy Certificate (IREC) purposing to transfer IREC to the organization who intend to consume electricity from renewable energy sources in company activities. The objective is to minimize global warming from GHG emission.
  • In 2565, Shahcogen Group delivered Renewable Energy Certificate which equivalent 73,608 tons CO2eq that is one of responsibilities to reduce GHG emission.
