SCOPE - Soybean Processing

SCOPE: Scaling Sustainable Consumption and Production in the Soybean Processing Industry

In Indonesia is among the world's largest greenhouse gas emitters, the majority of which is attributed to deforestation, although the volume produced by industry and transportation is rising. The tofu and tempe industry, with its vast conglomeration of micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs), still uses environmentally damaging production practices. The problems in the processed soy-based food industry are inefficient processes, inadequate waste disposal, lack of hygiene, insufficient access to credit, and the low awareness of new technologies. Without business development services, support, or regulations, these enterprises suffer from avoidable inefficiencies that not only reduce profitability and productivity, but also lead to environmental damage.

The industry offers an opportunity to have a significant impact on mitigating environmental damage in Indonesia while reducing urban poverty. The objective of the project is to reduce energy consumption and increase sustainable growth in urban food processing industries in Indonesia. This action will improve the situation of micro, small, and medium factories producing tofu and tempe in urban and peri-urban areas of Indonesia by helping them access energy-efficient technologies.

The project's target areas: Greater Jakarta (Jakarta, Bekasi, Tangerang and Bogor); Bandung and Sumedang (part of West Java Province); Kulon Progo and Gunung Kidul (part of Jogjakarta Province).

Duration: 2/2012 - 1/2015

Total budget: EUR 900,000 (EU Contribution: 80%)
