Title: Energy Conservation in the Food Industry : Follow-up Report.

Abstract

United Industries Corporation (UIC) conducted an energy analysis at five food processing plants (SIC 20) in the winter of 1984-1985. Tour of plants (Alpac, Carnation, Terminal flour mill, Tree Top) were revisited eighteen months later to determine what energy conservation measures (ECM's) had been or would be implemented. Additionally, the follow-up investigation evaluated the actual energy savings that accrued for the implemented ECM's and recorded the plants' views on the usefulness of the energy analysis.

  • This report presents a summary follow-up survey to an Electrical Energy Conservation Analyses of five Wood Products Industry (SIC 24) mills in the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) Service District. This contract included a requirement for resurvey of the five mills to determine the extent, if any, of implementation of the electrical conservation measures identified. The five mills surveyed and analyzed were: Pope and Talbot, Port Gamble, Washington; Pope and Talbot, Oakridge, Oregon; Champion International, Rosenburg, Oregon; Champion International, Bonner, Montana; and Northwest Hardwoods, Centralia, Washington.
  • The citations cover world-wide literature on conservation and savings in energy use for the food industry. Industries covered are dairies (including milk, cheese, cream, ice cream), breweries, meat industry, food processing plants, food warehouses, bakeries, and sugar factories. Energy savings aspects are alternate energy forms, solar drying and dehydration (including for grains and fruits), energy recycling (waste energy usage), and use of by-products for energy, such as biogas. The articles cover techniques equipment, and design for energy conservation. (Contains 95 abstracts)
  • The bibliography contains citations concerning energy conservation in the food industry. Energy requirements, basic approaches to energy audits, plant design, and the equipment and fuel for food processing are discussed. Alternative energy sources, energy recovery and other energy saving devices are considered as measures for conservation. Energy saving techniques and measures in dairies, meat packing plants, breweries, and various other processing plants are included. (Contains a minimum of 158 citations and includes a subject term index and title list.)
  • This retrospective bibliography contains citations concerning energy conservation in the food industry. Energy requirements, basic approaches to energy audits, plant design and the equipment, fuel, and processing steps are discussed. Alternate energy sources, energy recovery, and other energy saving devices are considered as measures for conservation. Energy saving in dairies, meat packing plants, breweries and other processing plants are discussed. (Contains 105 citations fully indexed and including a title list.)
  • The bibliography contains citations concerning energy conservation methods and systems in the food industry. The general principles of energy savings and future prospects in sugar, dairy, meat, frozen foods, and brewing industries are reviewed. Energy saving estimates and measures in food processing are discussed. (Contains a minimum of 188 citations and includes a subject term index and title list.)
