In 2022, the Group’s energy consumption data coverage is 80.3% by revenue ratio.
2022 Target for non-renewable consumption: 130,779 MWh
Conversion coefficient: (LPG 6,635 Kcal/L、Nature Gas 9,000Kcal/m3、Dissel 8,400Kcal/L、Gasoline 7,800Kcal/L、Electricity 860Kcal/KWh) * 0.0000041868GJ/Kcal * 1,000 (Source: Energy Bureau)
2022 Water Usage target: 381 million m3
Note：TESEN (TW) uses groundwater and the others use tap water
TECO uses tap water throughout its operations, with the sole exception of TESEN, which relies on groundwater. TESEN has a sewage treatment facility although TECO is not located in an industrial zone. Treated sewage is tested to ensure that it meets the relevant standards prior to discharge. TECO (HQ and plants) and TESEN both use tap water. TECO constantly implements various water conservation measures including installation of aerators and adoption of water saving toilets. Leaks are prevented through regular inspections.
Water Recycle performance
In 2020, the recycled water consumption quantity accounted for 20% of all water consumption
The recycled water consumption quantity is 76 tons/day, and it is used for 250 days per year
Casting recycled water basin capacity of 60 tons
Die casting recycled water basin capacity of 100 tons
Natural Gas Usage Management
Natural gas is the main source of non-renewable energy use in the plant. TECO tracks and manages natural gas consumption of the Taiwan plant, TECO-Westinghouse, Wuxi TECO, Qingdao TECO Precision, Wuxi TECO Precision and Motovario in Italy. From natural gas fee receipts to track and manage the use of energy and corresponding carbon emissions.
Air Pollution Management
Air pollutants are mainly generated during motor production in the Chungli plant and consist mainly of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). TECO has implemented improvements at the source by replacing the base coat for motors with VOC-free water-based paint. TECO has also adopted low-voc varnish
2022 Target: 162 ton
Plant locations that generate air pollutants include TECO Chungli and TESEN in Taiwan. Air pollution control facilities have been established in accordance with the relevant laws and standards and dedicated personnel have been assigned to carry out operations in accordance with environmental protection-related laws. TECO is firmly committed to reducing pollutant concentrations to conform to air pollution standards. TECO and TESEN pollutant categories include SOx, NOx, PM and VOCs
Sulfur oxide (SOX)
Nitrogen oxide (NOX)
Volatile organic compounds (VOCS)
TECO has formulated waste storage and disposal management guidelines as part of its environmental safety management system to implement waste reduction and resource recycling in TECO and affiliated enterprises. A unified storage area has been established for waste generated by all plants. Tracking is implemented and records are created during the disposal and treatment process. Relevant records are preserved for 3 years.
Waste treatment methods employed by TECO can be divided into the following categories: Re-use, incineration, physical treatment, offshore processing, landfill. Waste electric wires and cables are shipped to Mainland China for physical treatment.
2022 Target of waste disposal：873 ton
2022 Hazardous Waste Target: 301 ton
Formulate the "Waste Storage and Clearance Management Measures" and environmental management measures related to waste in the factory area, strengthen the tracking of waste removal and disposal, and hold meetings to review from time to time in accordance with laws and regulations. When selecting a waste treatment supplier, TECO conducts on-site evaluation on treatment capacity and the relevant acceptance standards to strengthen the tracking and management of waste removal and treatment.
Household garbage is entrusted to be cleared and transported to regional incinerators for treatment, and waste hardware, wood, paper, etc. are properly disposed of or disposed of by recycling.
Due to the different definitions of hazardous waste in different countries, from 2021 onwards, when expanding the recognition of the Italian factory, the calculation will be based on EU standards, and the data was traced back to 2020 retroactively. This resulted in an increase in the group-wide hazardous waste value. The waste oil, grinding sludge, coolant emulsions, aqueous washing solution, contaminated packaging, contaminated filters and absorbents, and exhausted wheels of the Italian factory are all recognized as hazardous wastes, but such wastes are recognized as non-hazardous general business waste in other countries.
Total waste disposed
Total waste in 2022 is 15,437.99 metric tons.
In 2022, the waste reduction target in Taiwan is 2% per year, and overseas sites are 1% per year. The data coverage rate is 80.3%, covering the HQ in Taiwan and 11 affiliated companies in total.
TECO constantly assesses energy conservation and carbon reduction, waste disposal, and pollution control equipment to minimize environmental pollution caused by pollutants generated during plant operations. Relevant expenses have been incorporated into environmental expenditure items. The solar power generation facilities in Chungli Plant were a major investment in 2020. Funds were budgeted for the implementation of the “emission reduction by 50% within ten years” after 2022, including reduction of the process SF6 escape and complete prohibition of R410A refrigerant in small-sized air conditioners. We use our own control and motor technologies to provide consumers with green energy-saving products and upgrade the energy-saving equipment of the plants. TECO Group implements the ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems and GHG inventories on an ongoing basis, and commissions external institutions to check greenhouse gases every year (ISO 14064-1); These implements will be extended to overseas operating bases in 2022. In addition, we mobilize all the employees to implement energy saving and carbon reduction projects. A project team has been formed to provide and implement actionable proposals. Chungli Plant received the green power certificate in March 2022.
CAPEX (solar power)
Definition of capital investment: For the purchase of equipment, property amount for environmental protection matters, such as the purchase of solar panels, purchase of variable-frequency equipment etc.
Definition of operating expense: Other investment amounts related to environmental protection, but excluding equipment purchase, such as air/water/waste soil/noise regulatory official fees/treatment fees; environmental monitoring fees; environmental management system maintenance fees etc.
