PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Lalan Rubbers, the glove manufacturing arm of Lalan Group, has 8 manufacturing facilities based in Sri Lanka, producing a comprehensive range of disposable (medical/industrial), surgical, household, industrial unsupported and supported, and seamless knitted and dipped gloves.
This project focused on 2 of these factories, Lalan Rubbers - Biyagama, and Lalan Rubbers - Seethawaka, and the ultimately successful replacement of fossil fuels with sustainable biomass for thermal energy generation required for drying and vulcanising of rubber gloves at these facilities.
The project consisted of replacing the existing fossil fuel heaters with three Thermic Fluid Heaters (TFH) with capacities of 2,500,000Kcal/hr (x2) and 4,500,000 Kcal/hr (x1), to generate 9,500,000 Kcal/hr. The estimated thermal energy generated from the coil-circulation type heaters is approximately 193.7 TJ per year.

PROJECT OUTCOME

Emission reductions are estimated to be approximately 10,000 to 12,000 carbon credits per annum. The project was first commissioned in January 2010, and as such it is estimated to have reduced emissions by an approximate total of 100,000 to 200,000 carbon credits since then. Initial validation of the project was carried out by TUV Nord.

Additionally, in line with our commitment to sustainability, this project has successfully met 4 of the 17 goals outlined by the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals:
