We also produce bio-diesel at our facilities.
Our processing plant in Sumatra, Indonesia uses low energy methods to transform byproducts into fish oil. Through a process that captures residual heat from freezers and coolers, we use less electricity to cool compressors and fish oil is produced without expending additional energy. The fish oil is then converted into a fossil fuel replacement powering our feed factory, resulting in significant electricity and fossil fuel savings.
In Honduras, Regal Springs Tilapia produces biodiesel from fish oil that operates our electric generator and boilers. This creates an annual savings of 75,000 liters ($60,000) of conventional diesel per year, thereby slowing carbon dioxide emissions and reducing diesel demand.
