CP Foods to phase out coal in 2022


CP Foods (CPF) will stop using coal in its Thailand operations by Q4 2022 and will switch to renewable energy sources like biomass, biogas, and solar energy. The shift will help the company achieve energy optimization and reduce more than 70,000 tons of CO2-equivalent greenhouse gas emissions annually, said Peerapong Krinchai, Executive Vice President. CPF’s 12 livestock feedmills no longer use coal, while its two aquafeed mills and a duck feather processing plant are phasing out coal use. “CPF aims to use resources efficiently and reduce production costs,” he said.
