In 2021, Angel Yeast invested 513 million yuan for the cause of environmental protection. Next, it will step up efforts to reach sustainability goals with a focus on technology innovation, emissions reduction, and clean energy.
The aim is to use tech innovation to have a clean, pollution-free and environmentally friendly manufacturing process.

It has also set up intelligent and "green" factories for yeast production, where all the production lines are automated, in order to improve efficiency and reduce emissions.
Clean energy and emissions reduction

Yeast is a key ingredient in industrial ethanol production and Angel Yeast is a major yeast supplier and technology provider of ethanol fuel production. In addition, clean energy has also been used in yeast production at Angel Yeast. To reduce coal-burning in boilers, Angel Yeast recycles methane from wastewater. The total amount of methane recycled last year reached 16.89 million cubic meters.
