The benefits of energy efficiency are manifold – lower energy bills, improved air quality, reduced greenhouse gases, increased energy security, and a deferred need to invest in new infrastructure.
A TM Systems case study shows that using the latest developments in energy efficiency in paper making can result in savings of up to 9 %.
A typical energy consumption of a Chinese mill
A typical example: a Chinese mill produces 300 000 adt/a, which corresponds to 7 300 000 GJ/a of energy consumption. Usually the type of energy used is in China is coal.
With TM Systems expertise plus closed hood, optimized air system and heat recovery system, the industrial air system savings potential at that mill can be calculated at 650 000 GJ/a. That is 9% of total energy consumption and is also in line with our completed projects.
For rebuild projects our knowledge of the potential for utilising excess heat energy is a key benefit in the most successful projects.
In addition to energy and the consequent monetary savings, projects often lead to closed process cycles resulting in reduced water usage and emissions into water systems, or better controlled air flows.
Presented at CIPTE
TM Systems first presented its own study, based on latest developments in energy efficiency solutions for the Chinese paper industry at the CIPTE conference in Beijing September 16-18, 2015.
