This report describes the data and statistical methods used to construct the Energy Performance Indicator (EPI) for commercial bread and roll bakeries. It reviews how the EPI was developed to provide a plant-level indicator of energy performance by working with the baking industry. The report also presents the individual equations used in the EPI.
Energy costs typically account for 5-7% of the overall operating costs in a metal casting foundry. Energy waste is found in all plants, and improving energy efficiency goes right to the bottom line. Following the procedures outlined in this guide will reduce your energy costs (and dollars spent) per ton of cast metal while improving your environmental reputation as well as image in the community.
