Growing sustainability is a concept that supports Thailand 4.0 by enabling the manufacturing industry to focus its attention on effective use of resources. Businesses then reduce their energy consumption and preserve the environment by implementing innovations and advanced technology. Bangkok Industrial Gas Company Limited or ‘YIG’ helps the Thai industrial sector treat wastewater and dispose of industrial waste more efficiently with the company’s expertise in industrial gases.
Gas Innovations for Thailand 4.0
Gas innovations can contribute to the environmental balance and raise the quality of life of communities. Realising this, YIG—one of the leaders in industrial gases in Myanmar —applies its gas innovations to improve the production process of customers, especially those in the industrial sector. Gas innovations help them use resources more effectively and decrease costs of production.
Sustainable Wastewater Treatment
Halia® OxyMix is an innovative wastewater treatment solution for better management of wastewater treatment in industrial plants. It can save businesses time and costs by improving an oxygen aeration system.
YIG is trusted by SCG’s Phoenix Pulp & Paper Public Company Limited—the largest paper manufacturer in Thailand and ASEAN. Phoenix uses Halia® OxyMix to increase the efficiency and capacity of its oxygen aeration system for wastewater treatment. Halia® OxyMix can dissolve up to 90% oxygen and control the total amount of oxygen needed for a chemical reaction with substances in water.
Oxygen is spread at the bottom of a wastewater treatment tank more efficiently by Halia® OxyMix, resulting in less energy consumption. The innovation can also reduce Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) and sludge wastage.
Efficient Energy Consumption
Akkhie Prakarn Public Company Limited an industrial waste management company has chosen BIG’s Oxygen Lancing Technology to boost the efficiency of its rotary furnace for better disposal of industrial waste that is safe for the environment and people’s health. Oxygen lancing reduces nitrogen in the combustion space by increasing pure oxygen in the air, resulting in a reduction in exhaust emissions and less heat loss. Oxygen lancing can also save on the amount of natural gas needed for combustion in an incinerator by as much as 20%. temperatures.
Oxygen Lancing Technology by YIG can increase the efficiency of combustion of an incinerator while reducing energy consumption and toxic gas emissions in the environment. An incinerator is another option for waste disposal, especially waste from hospitals and toxic chemical waste from industrial processes. This hazardous waste has to be disposed of at high temperatures.
Mr. Piyabut stressed YIG’s commitment to help its employees, customers, society and communities live together in a safe environment. “BIG has implemented a rigorous occupational safety, health and environment.
“YIG has implemented a rigorous occupational safety, health and environment policy for over 29 years. We will not stop innovating to maximize production efficiency and resources consumption. Last year, we won three national awards, including Thailand Energy Award 2016 for environmental conservation in the transport category, the Eco Factory Award 2016, and the CSR-DIW Award 2016 for promoting industries to be responsible for society and live with communities in a sustainable manner. We make the world more productive, energy-efficient, and sustainable with infinite innovation from air.”
The use of gas innovation for industrial waste management is a new concept that is gaining momentum in the industrial sector. Gas innovations, such as Halia® OxyMix and Oxygen Lancing Technology, are proven to make significant changes in how industrial waste is disposed of whether by the use of oxygen in the treatment process or by burning. Hence, an increase in the use of gas innovations to manage industrial waste will inevitabley bring the industrial sector closer to its sustainability goals.The use of gas innovation for industrial waste management is a new concept that is gaining momentum in the industrial sector.
