G.B. Industries made a decision to move to renewable energy which lead to the development of the Biomass Fuel Switch Project. It is a biomass thermal energy generation project which uses Palm Kernel Shells residues, a waste product generated by the palm oil industry as a renewable fuel source.
Our boiler fully supports the criteria set on CDM (Clean Development Mechanism), which stimulates sustainable development and emission reductions under the Kyoto Protocol. CDM allows industrialized countries some flexibility in how they meet their emission reduction limitation targets under the guidance of the UNFCCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change). The UNFCCC is an international environmental treaty aimed at stabilizing greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere at a level that would prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system.
The boiler activity generates considerable environmental benefits. Its implementation directly reduces the emission of greenhouse gases (CO2) by eliminating a source of fossil fuel combustion. In addition, the boiler improves local air quality by displacing the combustion of fossil fuel with a new technology that produces less smoke and noxious gases, which will in turn benefit the adjoining communities.
