Assessing Major Energy Uses
The majority of
As a result, the Energy Process Assessment was created to identify precisely where each process is using energy. The process calculates the energy efficiency of each machine establishing a current state. Then key drivers of energy use are studied and benchmarked against other lines or plants to identify causes of low efficiency. And finally, countermeasures to the key drivers are developed to jump start implementation and improve the efficiency of the machine and overall process. Reduction opportunities of 400,000 MMBtus have been identified as a result of this process.
