6 F&B factories in Mandalay
receive Energy Efficiency Audits
by Tha Bar Wa
Tha Bar Wa project conducted the second phase of Energy Efficiency (EE) Assessments/Audits for 6 food and beverage (F&B) factories in Mandalay, in collaboration with Mandalay Regional Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MRCCI). The purpose of this assessment was to allow the factories to identify areas where they can reduce cost of energy consumption and to provide practical and implementable energy efficiency solutions for sustainable production.
The audits were performed from August 26th to September 4th by 3 national consultants, supported by an international team of consultants. These national consultants were trained by Tha Bar Wa Project.
A full set of assessment reports for each factory, including problems and solutions, will be prepared and presented to the factory owners. The project will support implementation of energy efficiency solutions.
Tha Bar Wa project is funded by the European Union under the SWITCH-Asia Programme. It promotes cleaner production within the food and beverage industry by promoting wastewater treatment plants, energy efficiency, and renewable energy. It supports financial institutions to offer banking products designed specifically for cleaner production.
Recent research by WWF’s Asia-Pacific office showed a 74% increase in Facebook posts selling wildlife items in Myanmar between 2020 and 2021.
Tha Bar Wa project developed the sector specific Environmental Management Plan (EMP) checklist and guidance with the support of an international consultant, in order to assist small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) in food and beverage (F&B) sector in preparing and implementing effective EMPs.
The paper seeks to share lessons learned from the project and advance sustainability finance in the region.
It would be part of a campaign called ‘Voices for Rivers’. Mohinga, the nation’s favourite dish and one that always features fish, was the perfect entry point. Without healthy rivers, there would be no mohinga.
