Renewable Energy Management

In order to decarbonize our carbon footprint in our operations and value chain, we are exploring a diverse portfolio of solutions. We are actively reducing our reliance on conventional energy and increasing our use of renewable energy sources.

Decarbonizing IVL’s energy consumption via onsite and offsite renewable energy development is one of our Decarbonization strategies. We are consuming renewable energy (biomass and renewable electricity) in our operations and are further exploring the option of increasing the use of renewable electricity to achieve our 2025 ambitions. The use of renewable energy is via a combination of

Onsite Renewable Energy

Aside from biomass and biogas, we strive to generate an optimum amount of embed renewables at our sites through solar roof top and ground mounted. We keep installing solar rooftops at our sites and are also focusing on increasing our consumption of solar energy, through solar rooftop and solar floating installations at more other locations.

Offsite Renewable Electricity

Renewable electricity procurement through global virtual power purchase agreements (VPPAs) can offer further opportunities to reduce our GHG emissions in line with our commitment to the Paris Agreement. We are currently exploring procurement of renewable electricity through VPPAs and other market instruments of this type (for example, RECs and ROCs).

The percentage of purchased electricity from renewable sources decreased to 2.8% in 2022 due to more amount of onsite renewable electricity generation. Below is the list of plants utilizing 100% renewable electricity

  • UAB Orion Global Pet - Lithuania
  • Wellman International - Ireland
  • UTT Technische Textilien - Germany
  • Indorama Ventures Portugal PTA - Portugal
  • Kordárna Plus - Slovakia
  • Indorama Ventures (Oxide & Glycols) - USA

To date, we have installed onsite solar units across 15 sites in China, India, Indonesia, Thailand, and Lithuania.

We purchased renewable electricity with certificates through PPAs in the US and Europe, which provided a total of 209,242 MWh in 2022 and We are further exploring the procurement of more renewable electricity through VPPAs, especially in the US and Europe,where the majority of our operational sites are located.

The adoption of VPPAs not only facilitates scalability but also promotes the global expansion of renewable energy capacity, particularly in wind and solar power. Therefore, we are determined to explore opportunities to improve our procurement of renewable electricity through VPPAs at other viable manufacturing locations.

tCO2e

Our use of renewable energy in 2022 is around 1.33 million GJ resulting in saving of 74,906 tCO2e. Our efforts are helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) and contributing to achieving the UN SDGs.

We are committed to sourcing more electricity from renewable sources and continue to explore ways to improve our energy management. We are reviewing the renewable electricity market, its pricing methodology and exploring the option of offsite Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) to procure significant amounts of electricity. We are also exploring opportunities to install solar panels on the roofs of some of our plants which exhibit strong potential for solar power.

Case studies
Liquefied Natural Gas-Based Heating System (Thailand)

Indorama Polyester Industries in Nakhon Pathom, Thailand achieved a significant milestone in their sustainability journey by commissioning a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)-based thermic fluid heating system to replace the original coal-fired system. This marks their first step towards phasing out coal at their site, resulting in an annual reduction of 5,212 tCO2e in GHG emissions and an expected overall 6% carbon savings this year.

Innovations in Solar Fencing

UAB Orion Global PET, our subsidiary in Lithuania, installed a solar power plant in place of a fence, which performs the dual functions of marking the boundary and generating 55.82 MWh of electricity per year bringing total solar energy capacity at the site to 390,000 kWh.

Clean and Renewable Electricity Supply from Solar Modules

Indorama Polyester Industries (Nakhon Pathom), Thailand, or IPI – N, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, demonstrated its green credentials by installing photovoltaic modules for captive solar power generation on the roof of their facility. These high efficiency modules have a capacity of 840 kilowatt peak (kWp) and can generate an estimated 1,173 MWh per year. The advantages from this inexhaustible energy source are clear from a financial and environmental perspective, as they provide an annual electricity cost-savings of roughly USD 122,000 with a reduction in CO2 emissions of 560 tCO2e/year. They were installed and started operating in July 2019. Total electricity generated in 2019 was 565,327 kWh which reduced 270 tons of GHG emissions. It reduced energy consumption from other conventional sources by 2,035 GJ and contributed to electricity cost-savings of USD 58,788. IPI – N’s photovoltaic modules are an important step in reducing utility costs and greenhouse gas emissions.
