Business for Social Good Award launched by Our Hong Kong Foundation New

Towngas participated in the Business for Social Good Outstanding Award and was honoured with the Business for Social Good Award, the first alike award in Hong Kong, launched by Our Hong Kong Foundation. The aim of this Award is to identify local examples of creating social and environmental benefits through profitmaking businesses.

Towngas’ engineering team actively explored the feasibility of using landfill gas from North East New Territories Landfill as the energy source for generator. After our continuous attempts and enhancements, the Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Generating System was successfully established last year which can supply landfill gas to Alice Ho Miu Ling Nethersole Hospital  (Nethersole Hospital) as energy for generator to jointly achieve the environmental protection concept of “turning waste into energy”. With the CHP Generating System, the flue gas and residual heat from cooling water produced by the landfill gas generator installed in Nethersole Hospital will be recovered to produce steam and hot water for disinfection, laundry and other purposes in the hospital. It is estimated that Nethersole Hospital will save about HK$ 2.7 million in energy costs each year.

By implementing this project, Towngas can increase its gas sales and profit, landfill gas can be properly treated and Nethersole Hospital can also save its energy cost. It is definitely a win-win-win Business for Social Good project.


HKGBC Green Product Accreditation and Standards (HK G-PASS): Chiller Category

The Hong Kong Green Building Council (HKGBC) presented the award of Green Product Accreditation and Stardards (HK G-PASS) to Towngas for the contribution towards green building.
