Energy – a vital factor of production for all Cosun's businesses – is a substantial cost item. So there's every reason to cut down on our use of fossil fuels and find alternatives that are less harmful to the environment.
Know-how, experience and best practices are shared within the Cosun network to make our production processes even more energy efficient. The TPM approach also considers energy and ways to reduce its consumption.
A very different development is the fermentation of vegetable wastes that cannot be used in other applications. Suiker Unie is the driving force within Cosun in the production of green gas in industrial fermentation units. Suiker Unie is an energy producer as well as an energy consumer. The other Cosun businesses are also using residues to generate energy or are studying ways of doing so.
