Waste Management and Reuse

Waste Management and Reuse

      In 2019, the amount of general business waste handled included 28,364.53 tons for landfill, 0.43 ton for incineration, and 174,089.75 tons for reuse (compost or soil amendments). In 2019, the waste disposal amount decreased by 2.99% compared with 2018.



Reduction in the Output of Waste

      The recycling ratio of waste resource in 2019 reached 85.99%, decreased by 2.7% compared with 2018, mainly because of the reduced production of sugarcane and hogs, resulting in the reduced processing volume of bagasse and pig manure residues, causing the recycle ratio to reduce.
 
Marketing Business Division and Biotechnology Business Division The new product packaging design of the Marketing Business Division is in line with the policy of limiting over-packaging of products announced by the Environmental Protection Administration (EPA), Executive Yuan, to reduce the use of packaging materials and generation of waste, easing off the environmental load. Take the packaging of the Clam Essence for example, the lining frame strengthens the structure and texture of the box with folded edges while the size of the gift box is reduced to meet the requirements of the prescription. The Biotechnology Business Division uses glass bottles with reduced weight for the Clam Essence Products, a 7.6% decrease in weight compared with the old glass bottles, which is converted to a 24,798 kg reduction in glass use, reducing the impact of glass to the environment.
Sugar Business Division The Shanhua Sugar Refinery of Sugar Business Division changed business waste of bagasse and filter mud into recycled materials as the soil amendment, reaching the purpose of circular economy. In 2019, the Bagasse Company of Shanhua Sugar Refinery received 15,782.26 tons of bagasse internally and sold 9,917.30 tons externally; the filter mud is officially named Fertile Soil, and the Company received 19,425.53 tons internally and sold 1,604.52 tons externally, achieving the reuse of resources and reducing the use of chemical fertilizers.
In 2019, the egg cards of Trichogramma chilonis were provided to our self-operated farms and contracted sugarcane gardens. In addition, TSC was also entrusted to provide the eggs of corcyra cephalonica (stainton) as the materials to feed Chrysopidae to function as a pest control for fruits and vegetables, which can significantly reduce the use of pesticides.
Animal Industry Business Division To work in line with the government’s requirements of green environmental protection, 40.86% of the pig manure slag produced in the livestock farms will be self-reused and fermented to environmentally friendly organic fertilizer for the farmers to use on the farmland to improve physical properties of soil, increase crop growth, yields of crops and the farmers’ benefits.
Agriculture Business Division The tissue culture bottles used for the production of Phalaenopsis seedlings are reusable glass culture bottles instead of non-reusable plastic cases. From January to December in 2019, a total of 1,179,892 glass culture bottles were used, and all of them were recycled for reuse, with the reuse rate of 100%.
