Energy Efficiency Guide to the Animal Feed Milling Sector

INDUSTRIAL ENERGY EFFICIENCY ACCELERATOR

One way for industry to achieve significant CO2 reductions is to improve energy efficiency in sector-specific manufacturing processes.

The Carbon Trust has been working with a number of industry sectors, as part of its Industrial Energy Efficiency Accelerator (IEEA), to identify where savings can be made in each one. This novel approach aims to deliver quick and substantial reductions in industrial process emissions, by accelerating innovation in process control and the uptake of low carbon technologies. 

The detailed data collected from submetering of the animal feed manufacturing process highlighted a number of opportunities to significantly reduce carbon emissions within the sector.

The animal feed sector could take a more strategic approach to carbon reduction, engaging with both customers and suppliers, in order to position itself to take advantage of the low carbon economy. This report discusses in detail the opportunities for energy efficiency and carbon reduction. It also presents data that has been gathered as evidence to justify investment in these opportunities.

The detailed data collected from submetering of the animal feed manufacturing process highlighted a number of opportunities to significantly reduce carbon emissions within the sector.

These fall into three broad themes:

  • innovation in process control
  • product strategy innovation
  • innovative equipment
