Tha Bar Wa boosts energy efficiency application through a Training of Trainers (ToT)
Tha Bar Wa project organized a Training of Trainers (ToT) on Energy Efficiency (EE) conducted by international energy efficiency consultant Mr. Rajat Batra focusing on Food and Beverage (F&B) sector. 10 trainees from engineering, energy management and related background participated in this training.
“I really enjoyed this course. It focuses on F&B sector especially small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) in Myanmar. Hence, I am satisfied that I would help our industries in future. After I learnt energy efficiency, I realized how energy efficiency connects with recent power breakdown. I learnt that we need to make sure the right and effective use of power first. Otherwise, even Electric Power Corporation (EPC) would not be in a position to supply enough power we need. Hence, we need to understand energy efficiency, it is beneficial for the individuals as well as for the country.”
“I only knew how we use power and the way machines are set up in factories. However, I was not aware of how to use the power or electricity efficiently. I always thought how to set up machines for the factory and building as an electrical power engineering. I only focus on power usage. Though, I realized that effective and efficient using energy is important and if we know it well, it is very beneficial for us and the factory, I realized this in this training.”
Six food and beverage (F&B) factories within the Yangon Region were assessed for how they process and treat wastewater by Tha Bar Wa in March 2022.
The latest success stories come from potato snack manufacturer, Three Sisters, and local bakery El Dorado of the Divine Food Garden Industry Co., Ltd. Both have now installed wastewater treatment plants in their factories.
25 January 2022: The Tha Bar Wa project organised an online workshop on sustainable production within the food and beverage (F&B) sector, together with its project implementation partner, the Myanmar Food Exporter and Processor Association (MFPEA).
