Low Energy Manufacturing
October 9, 2019
[:en]“Manufacturers in the UK are currently under a lot of pressure from their supply chain to demonstrate how they are limiting their impact on the environment”, writes guest company Inenco for The Manufacturer this week. “Optimising energy consumption whilst still improving operational efficiency and ensuring production continuity” is essential.
At Adelphi, we are constantly looking to improve our carbon footprint, and better our energy efficiency and wasteage. Our production facility ‘The Friary’ has 256 photovoltaic solar panels on the roof, which generate excess electricity at a rate of 3% per month. Rainwater harvesting reduces our water consumption, and saves us 12,000 litres per month. New flooring has been installed, which is far more thickly insulated than our previous flooring, greatly reducing heat loss in the winter months. This combines with the air source heat pump utilised by our ‘Blacksmiths’ building, to decrease our overall expenditure on heating.
