Compressed air is one of the most important utilities for the industry. It is also one of the largest consumers of energy. Therefore, compressor energy savings have a significant impact on costs and on the environment.
A product’s carbon footprint is the sum total of the CO2 emissions from its entire life cycle, from the production of the materials and the energy used during production, to when it’s in use by our customers and then the recycling or scrapping of the materials.
By introducing VSD compressors by Atlas Copco, millions KWh of electricity has been saved in all over the world which in turn reduces the CO2 emissions. These compressors can also run at noise level as low as 62 decibels.
With energy recovery the heat i.e. the byproduct of compressed air could be reused in other processes such as heating water, instead of being diverted into the atmosphere. This is particularly useful in manufacturing plants that already need hot water for processes such as scalding, cleaning, and steaming.
Used oil has been identified as Canada’s largest single-source of potentially hazardous material if not managed properly and Atlas Copco has been a member of Used Oil Management Association of Canada from the establishment of this organization in every province to do it’s part for protecting the environment. Atlas Copco pays Environmental Handling Charges (EHC) for the recycling of Oil filters, oil separators, used oil and empty oil containers at the end of life.
