Analysis of extended energy survey reports (1984-1988) for the rubber processing industry

Technical Report:

Abstract

The Rubber Processing Industry in the United Kingdom is dominated by the Tyre subsector and the General Rubber Goods (GRG) subsector which have comparable energy usage. This document analyses 23 extended energy survey reports in the GRG subsector. The 23 sites account for one quarter of the energy delivered to GRG companies. Historical energy cost savings in excess of Pound 1 million per annum were identified on the 23 sites surveyed. These were largely in the areas of boilers and steam distribution, insulation and draught stripping, and energy management. All the energy saving projects had predicted paybacks of less than 3 years; 93% had paybacks of less than 2 years. About two thirds of the projects required an investment of Pound 3,000 or more. One site generated its own electricity via combined heat and power (CHP); there may be scope for CHP on other large sites. (author).
