Technical achievements in energy conservation by beverage-related processing industries: Breweries, dairies, distilleries and maltings

Abstract

Patterns of adoption and adaptation of a wide range of energy-conserving technologies were observed in 1983-1984. The most widely employed techniques were low-energy lighting and power-factor correction, both of which generate significant savings with minimal alteration to process plant and working methods, are capable of great flexibility in their mode of application, and can be installed independently for small parts of the total plant, in a step-by-step manner. The generally disappointing findings are associated with internal management attitudes to full systematic treatments of energy-cost problems, artificially high barriers to investment, especially in smaller organisations, and widespread lack of commitment to, and understanding of, relevant innovation procedures. Site specific constraints are also important in some older production facilities.
