Industrial energy efficiency
For many companies today, energy saving is a key factor in staying competitive internationally. With good leakage management, compressed air costs fall very substantially—as was the case for Tate & Lyle.
Sustainability and climate protection
Combating climate change begins within our own four walls. That is why we at Festo are pursuing a sustainability strategy that is aligned with the development goals (SDGs) of the United Nations. From 2023, all our buildings in Germany and our global production and logistics locations will be CO2-neutral with regard to Scope 1 and 2. From 2026, the entire Festo Group will be CO2-neutral. With the decision to become CO2 neutral, we are assuming responsibility as a family-owned company – you can read what exactly that means for us and how we can support you in achieving your own goals here.
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 optimization 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 analyzing 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-organized 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.
