By using the most efficient equipment, it is possible to significantly reduce the energy requirement of plastic processing systems. If this is combined with a financial scheme remunerating the energy savings, the advantages for the user are multiplied. Through Energys, a company of the Piovan Group, it is possible to combine advanced technology with the “White Certificates” each corresponding to 5,347 kWh saved each year in electrical energy consumption (valid for the Italian territory).
The certificates can be sold to major electricity distribution companies who purchase them in order to comply with international environmental rules. This way, plastic processors, whose industrial activity is among the most energy intensive, can reap a significant return on their investment, which is multiplied further when the entire industrial life of a production plant is considered.
