Energy use in the Plastics Processing Industry in the United Kingdom is dominated by the conversion process used. The 4 major processes are injection moulding (IM), blow moulding (BM), extrusion (Ex) and film blowing (FB) where the first two are the most energy intensive. This document analyses 26 extended energy survey reports. Classifying these reports by process gives 16(IM), 4(BM), 3(Ex) and 3(FB). The 26 sites surveyed account for 3% of the energy delivered to the Plastics Processing sector. Historical energy cost savings of ca Pound 740 thousand per annum were identified on the 26 sites surveyed. The savings were largely in the areas of Energy Management, Insulation and draught stripping, Environmental services and Heat recovery. All the energy saving projects had predicted paybacks of less than 3 years; 95% had paybacks of less than 2 years. About 2/3 of the projects required an investment of Pound 3,000 or more. The need for M and T in the Plastics Processing sector was reconfirmed. (author).
