Becoming a green production company
How much can I save going green?
Investing in environment-friendly compressors and optimizing existing air systems can sharply reduce the production cost of compressed air. But how big are these savings really?
Here are some answers
Take into account every cost of air generation
Understanding the costs of compressed air and how to keep them low.
Let's have a look at every component of a compressed air system and the costs attached.
“Going green” is much more than a trendy slogan. By switching to environment-friendly technologies and processes, companies can save a lot of money, reduce their carbon footprint, and other benefits such as energy reduction incentives from the government. Look into more benefits
Calculate your estimated energy savings and payback time in our compressor payback estimator. Simply use the slider to adapt the following parameters
- Yearly running hours
- Evaluation period
- Efficiency improvement
- Power, investment, maintenance and installation cost of your current compressor
- Power, investment, maintenance and installation cost of your new green compressor
and read your results in a minute.
From investing in energy-efficient equipment to reducing travel, there are lots of ways in which companies can reduce their carbon footprint and help lead the fight against climate change.
How can you contribute to reducing your carbon footprint?
A disruption to the compressed air supply is like a prolonged power outage – just more costly. Top-quality equipment and central control and remote monitoring system can offer just that ultimate compressed air reliability. Read more
Businesses increasingly want to help the environment and invest in green technology. Fortunately, today’s environment-friendly compressed air systems can also deliver the required air quality in green production. Find out more
How to choose the most energy-efficient solution, VSD or fixed speed compressors for your compressed air production? Learn here
There is something admirable about trying to squeeze every bit of performance out of an ageing machine. That in itself is a form of sustainability and resource preservation. However, in the case of air compressors, this is often neither efficient nor environment-friendly. With cutting edge variable speed drive technology that reduces energy use and energy costs by up to 50 percent, not upgrading to a new compressor is often much more wasteful than sticking with an old model.

How to use this carbon reduction estimator?
Step 1: Select your currency and unit of measurement
Step 2: Fill in your annual running hours, system power, and electrical cost per hour
Step 3: Choose the percentage of energy saving
1 bar air pressure band reduction: 7%
Changing from fixed speed to VSD: 35%
Changing from fixed speed to VSD+: 50%
Installing an energy recovery system: 94%
Step 4: Select the numbers of years to visualize saving over time
Have a look at the estimation of your reduction in electricity costs and your CO2 reduction. To make it more tangible, we visualized the reduction in CO2 in more common comparisons such as CO2 emissions from charged smartphones and a households' yearly electricity use.
With climate change becoming a top priority, manufacturers can expect more stringent environmental regulations. Governments are not just imposing new burdens on manufacturers. They are also providing subsidies, tax breaks, and other energy reduction incentives. Prepare now

Wouldn’t it be great if there were a way to make compressed air systems more efficient while saving money and the environment at the same time?
The bad news is that there isn’t one way to do that. The great news is that there are ten ways!
Best of all, some of them involve things you can do today and that will cost you hardly anything at all. By the end of the day, you could already be saving money.
If you want to know how, check out our new “10-step guide to a greener, better, and more efficient production.”
This guide to carbon reduction in production is intended to increase awareness of the potential savings in compressed air generation, treatment, and distribution.
It is intended to give you an introduction and understanding of compressed air system design and operation to enable you to ask more informed questions to a compressed air expert.
The guide has been written for compressed air users and the calculations contained are estimations for guidance. We still recommend a detailed audit by compressed air specialists to assess detailed saving potential.

Companies that do not invest in green technology today lowering their production costs, and take advantage of other benefits, will get left behind. Here is a look at all the ways in which a business will pay for not going green.
More than 90% of the energy an air compressor uses is converted into heat. This heat is vented to the atmosphere. An energy recovery system allows to use most of that compression heat elsewhere – and to save costs in the process. Get more info here
Green production practices
The initial purchase price of a compressor is only a small part of its total cost of ownership. Knowing that energy makes up the bulk of these costs, how can you keep your compressor expenses down?

Watch our movies to learn how customers applied energy recovery systems.
Many businesses have recognized the value of energy-efficient production processes and alternative energy. But only some companies are embracing energy recovery methods that could benefit them even more. Read more
When is technology green?
New compressors offer many benefits. However, they also constitute a significant investment. So, when is it time for a company to make the switch?
Go through our checklist to find the answer
Businesses can save a lot by choosing an environment-friendly air compressor.
But not all solutions are the same and companies should carefully weigh the benefits of different options.
