At Del Monte, we work each day to create innovative products for our consumers without any trade-offs in price or performance. To us, environmental sustainability means creating value by conserving our natural resources and preserving the planet for future generations. We look to reducing our environmental impact whenever we can – from the design of our factories to manufacturing & packaging of our products. We ensure that our products are made in a responsible way and in doing so we look at:
- Advancing technologies to reduce waste
- Increasing recycling and reuse
- Creating even safer treatment and disposal options
- Developing sources of renewable energy
- Sharing the benefits of our learning and innovation with our clients and collaborators
In our endeavor to save energy & water, we are working on various projects at our manufacturing plant in Hosur.
The objective is to reduce carbon footprint with Change of Fuel from fossil fuel (Furnace oil) to Biomass. Compared to fossil fuels, the briquettes produce low net total greenhouse gas emissions because the materials used are already a part of the carbon cycle. Biomass Boiler is fired with Agri waste like Husk & Cobs.
Natural resource - Water used for cooking, is preheated up to 70 Deg C by using concentrated solar thermal (parabolic reflectors). This helps reduce usage of 4-5 LPG Cylinders per month.
Cooler Tower Heater This is being used in HVAC system to cool process & filling hall. Temperature of cooling tower water is between 10 - 12 Deg C. Helps save the usage of 135 KW compressor and overall cost.
