Angel Yeast Steps Up Low-Carbon Measures in Green Push to Promote Global Sustainable Development
YICHANG, China, Mar. 11, 2022 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/--

Angel Yeast Co., Ltd( ("Angel Yeast" or "the 
Company", 600298.SH), a listed global yeast and yeast extract manufacturer, has 
reached another recognition milestone for its green push towards the goal of 
carbon-neutrality after China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology 
recently named Angel Yeast as one of the national "Green Factories." The 
recognition is testimony to the Company's unrelenting effort to reduce the 
carbon footprint of its operations, demonstrating its tremendous and 
long-standing commitment to energy conservation and environmental protection.

"As a leading global yeast innovator dedicated to bringing healthy and 
nutritious yeast-based products to customers worldwide, Angel Yeast shares the 
global responsibility to drive forward sustainable development by continuously 
advancing our pledge to reduce energy consumption and carbon emission. The 
recognition from China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology marks 
another major step for Angel Yeast in our drive to help China and the world 
accelerate towards the net-zero goal," said Xiao Minghua, General Manager of 
Angel Yeast.

To transform into a green factory, Angel Yeast has ramped up investment to 
outfit its manufacturing facilities with a plethora of carbon-reducing 
solutions – including the adoption of energy-saving equipment and waste heat 
and pressure recovery – to bring down energy consumption and support its new 
green energy production needs. The Company has expanded the use of solar power 
while reducing reliance on fossil fuels. The upgraded steam-reducing technology 
allows Angel Yeast's factories to recover the waste heat generated during 
production, boosting energy efficiency and curtailing steam consumption. 
Meanwhile, Angel Yeast is also able to achieve cascade utilization of energy by 
equipping its factories with the latest water-recycling technology.

In 2021, Angel Yeast launched a project to install magnetic levitation fans for 
two production bases in Suixian and Binzhou. Now, all of Angel Yeast's 
factories are equipped with magnetic levitation fans. In the same year, Angel 
Yeast installed magnetic suspension chillers for its yeast production line in 
Chongzuo and upgraded the boiler automation for its Egypt-based company. The 
year also saw Angel Yeast implementing twenty-eight technological overhauls for 
its plants across all regions, which resulted in 19,700 tons of reduction in 
CO2 emissions, driving down power consumption per ton of yeast by 1.4%, steam 
by 2.5%, and water consumption by 3.1%.

Angel Yeast has started a major expansion of renewable energy generation, 
replacing fossil fuels with clean energy sources. Its wastewater treatment 
facilities harness anaerobic fermentation technology to treat organic 
wastewater to produce biogas, which is reused in biogas boilers to produce 
steam, replacing the coal-generated and outsourced steam. Angel Yeast is also 
promoting the use of biomass fuel in boilers to further reduce the use of 
fossil fuels. The measures helped the Company recycle 16.89 million cubic 
meters of biogas in 2021, a 21.7% year-on-year decrease, cutting 27,000 tons of 
CO2 and 88,000 tons of coal-produced and outsourced steam.

With the yeast wastewater reutilization technology, Angel Yeast recycles the 
organic matter in the yeast fermentation wastewater to produce fertilizer for 
crops, paving the way for building a circular supply chain. In 2021, the 
Company produced 277,000 tons of yeast organic fertilizer through this method.
