Analysis of textile finishing industry. Extended energy survey reports 1984-1989

Technical Report:

Abstract

There are 25 Extended Energy Surveys from the United Kingdom textile finishing industry analysed in this report. A variety of processes is involved including bleaching, dyeing, printing and finishing. Some are processing woven fabric and others yarn or loose stock and some will be processing a combination of these. The 25 sites represent about 16% of the energy used in the textile finishing industry. Potential annual energy savings of Pound 1.9M were identified in the 25 reports. These savings were classified in two ways, by type of measure and by cost. The most important measures were steam distribution, heat recovery, process changes and energy management. In terms of energy savings, 40% were attributable to techniques costing Pound 10k or more. These were mainly heat recovery measures and process changes. All the types of measure yielded a payback of less than 2 years except for some of the heat recovery measures and process changes. The ratio of national benefit to Government cost for the 25 EES`s would have been approximately 24:1 if all recommended measures had been undertaken. (author).
