How to reduce the costs of industrial pollution control
Industry doesn't always positively receive government schemes for reducing pollution, mainly because additional investment is often required to comply with new regulations. However, at the same time there may be assistance with the development of new and existing technology, which can reduce costs and improve the performance of pollution control equipment.
Improving the efficiency of the trusted exisiting boilers
Heating has been provided by oil and gas-fired boilers for many industrial and commercial premises for over 100 years. In that time the energy efficiency of these installations has increased steadily, however there is a way to significantly reduce energy consumption that is still not universally applied and yet has a typical payback period of less than 18 months.
How to calculate waste heat recovery
Industry now lives by the mantra of seeking efficient energy use. Businesses with processes demanding high energy consumption should be looking to improve energy efficiency and minimise waste. Increasingly, industrial plants are looking at heat recovery methods as a means to improve energy efficiency and sustainability of their business.
Energy saving project wins government innovation award
A hospital on the Isle of Man was looking to reduce operating costs, so it worked with boiler manufacturer and contractor McQuillan to seek methods of reducing energy costs. With a payback period of just three years, the installation of three steam boiler economisers will provide an annual energy saving of over £30,000.
