Energy Efficiency
in Food Industry

The Challenge

Electricity and Natural Gas consumption 
Electricity and Natural Gas consumption


• Average water consumption of 0,12 m³ per tonne produced

• Average electricity consumption of 40,7 kWh per tonne produced

• Average gas consumption of 335,6 kWh per tonne produced

Root Causes

• Limited visibility of detailed information related to the consumption of steam, electricity and raw materials

• Lack of detailed information to enable the launch of effective countermeasures to correct deviations in equipment consumption

The Solution

Condenser Recovery
Condenser Recovery
Daily countermeasure routine
Daily countermeasure routine

• Continuous in-line measurement of electricity, steam and raw materials consumption. These measurements will serve as the basis for the costing model and parameterisation of products in the system

• Visibility of detailed consumptions in visual format. These consumptions are analysed in a daily routine which includes the definition of countermeasures

• Condenser recovery through maintenance and replacement of equipment and components

The Results

The project generated annual savings of 267,000 € per year.

Electricity Consumption
