Pfeifer&Langen wants to build a PV farm in mid-2010 2024 and reduce CO2 emissions by 40% by 2030

Pfeifer & Langen Polska will start the construction of a photovoltaic farm in the sugar factory in Glinojeck later this year, thanks to which carbon dioxide emissions will be reduced by 1,500 tons per year, the company announced. The company’s goal is to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from installations in the company’s production plants by min. 40% this decade.

According to plans, the photovoltaic farm in Glinojeck is to be commissioned in the middle of next year, it was reported.

“This investment is one of the steps in our environmental transformation, including on switching our energy sector to renewable energy sources throughout the entire sugar production cycle. This is one of our main goals as part of our sustainable development strategy,” said Pfeifer & Langen Polska Management Board Member Tamara Nosarzewska, quoted in the release.

“Our goal, in this decade, is to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from installations in our production plants by min. 40%. Only in the last year we reduced emissions by more than 10% y/y, and ongoing investments should ensure a reduction of another 25 percentage points. against 2020 in the next 2-3 years. At the same time, we are conducting conceptual projects in areas related to raw materials and logistics. Among other things, we are working on the topic of CO2 binding in soil humus in the fields of our partners – farmers. These actions are to ensure the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions in the entire sugar production chain,” she added.

The company specified that the planned farm will produce energy to supply the sugar factory in Glinojeck and its operation will reduce the consumption of energy from the outside. The surface area of the panels will be 14,090 sq m, which will be located inside the plant on the area of 3.86 ha. To build the farm, Pfeifer & Langen Polska will use the so-called bifacial panels – double-sided panels, with a power of 550 Wp. The annual production of electricity will amount to over 3,000 MWh – approx. 700 tons of coal would be needed to produce such energy. According to the project, this will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 1,500 tons.

As part of the Pfeifer & Langen Polska Group, four sugar factories produce sugar in Poland: in Środa Wlkp., Gostyń, Miejska Górka and Glinojeck. These plants buy beets only from Polish growers, and sell their products, among others, to under the brand Diamant.
