LEED Platinum and the concept of greenhouse gas reduction
L’Oréal’s plant, an industrial park Vorsino, Russia
The project is certified according to LEED v4 Platinum. It has significantly reduced greenhouse gas emissions including by construction of a 500-kW solar power plant. The factory has earned the title of the eco-friendliest plant in the world.
Plant certification according to the LEED Platinum system. Development of solutions on decreasing energy supply, digital modeling of energy consumption, development of design approaches for increasing ecological characteristics, measurements of solar power plant, engineering system acceptance.
The building scored 80 points and received the world’s first LEED Platinum 4v certification for an industrial enterprise. The project provides for high parameters of energy and water savings, as well as ensuring climatic comfort.
1. Exploring options for reducing greenhouse gas emissions:
– Conducting an analysis of the current energy consumption, as well as the energy supply scheme and determining the current volume of energy consumption and direct (Scope 1) and indirect energy-related (Scope 2) greenhouse gas emissions.
– Identification and economic evaluation of possible solutions for reducing greenhouse gas emissions, including:
Combined generation systems.
Renewable energy sources:
Solar power plant
Boiler room using biomass, biogas and biofuel
Solar thermal systems
Analysis of the use hydrogen technologies.
Options for offsetting greenhouse gas emissions (offset).
2. Technical and economic assessment of greenhouse gas emission reduction scenarios:
Development of basic energy supply schemes and options for offsetting greenhouse gas emissions.
Technical and economic assessment of basic energy supply schemes and options for offsetting greenhouse gas emissions, including determining capital and operational expenses for implementing solution options (order of magnitude).
3. Energy efficiency and greenhouse gas reduction:
Saving 6 500 000 rubles per year (with consideration to domestic price of carbon 56 €).
