For many companies today, saving energy is a key factor in staying competitive internationally. Optimal leak management significantly reduces compressed air costs – as was the case for Tate & Lyle.
Sustainability and climate protection
Climate protection begins within your own four walls. That is why at Festo we are pursuing a sustainability strategy that is aligned with the United Nations Development Goals (SDGs). From 2023 onwards, all our buildings in Germany as well as our global production and logistics sites will be carbon neutral with regard to Scope 1 and 2. From 2026, the entire Festo Group will be carbon neutral. With our decision to go carbon neutral, we are taking responsibility as a family-owned company – you can read here exactly what that means for us and how we support you in achieving your own goals.
Paring down costs: energy efficiency
What does a pencil sharpening system have to do with energy efficiency? Quite a lot! In the “Experience Energy Efficiency” exhibition in the Festo corporate head office in Esslingen-Berkheim, the pencil sharpening system shows how one optimisation measure for energy efficiency combines with another one to produce an overall concept with impressive energy credentials through the reduction of friction and weight, recovery of energy, selection of the right components and efficient actuation and control.
Maximum pleasure, minimum consumption
Energy-saving measures are a cornerstone of the corporate philosophy of global firm Unilever. The company is now significantly reducing its compressed air consumption on a machine producing Magnum ice creams by using the new energy efficiency module MSE6-E2M.
Leakage detection in practice
Festo Energy Saving Services reduce the operating costs of industrial plants the world over. Hidden sources of errors can be found by analysing compressed air generation, consumption and quality as well as through targeted leakage detection. At Tate & Lyle in the Netherlands, the energy efficiency experts uncovered losses of 6,000 l/min.
Air is money
Well-organised energy management increases the efficiency of pneumatic systems and components. It provides protection against gradually increasing compressed air losses and ensures a long-term gain in performance through the integration of new technical developments. Accurate analyses form the basis for lower energy costs.
