The Air Flow Saver Significantly Reduces CO² Emissions


Elevating Sustainability: Reducing Carbon Footprint with Air Flow Saver System

In the current climate debate, carbon dioxide (CO²) emissions have taken center stage. These emissions are charged through energy taxes on every purchased kilowatt hour. The impending CO² tax, mandated by legal requirements like the new European Energy Efficiency Directive, adds transparency for companies needing to disclose their CO² emissions to customers and investors.

Your factory, much like our planet, is already impacted by carbon. To be recognized as a sustainable company in the future, merely planting trees won’t suffice; substantial reductions in internal emissions are imperative.

Global projects in various factories reveal that optimizing compressed air systems is the most straightforward and cost-effective method to curtail CO² emissions. Compressed air often powers a significant portion of production processes and stands out as the most expensive energy source. The Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for a compressed air system is comprised of 5% investment, 25% service cost, and a staggering 70% energy cost due to the inherently inefficient nature of compressed air generation.

Believe it or not, the average compressed air system emits 30-50% more CO² than necessary, leading to an unnecessarily high electricity bill. Approximately 70% of compressed air applications occur at blow-off stations, where processes such as drying, cleaning, or sorting take place. Our Air Flow Saver intervenes here, saving up to 95% of compressed air by blowing only when needed, achieving an increased impulse blow effect for enhanced performance.

For instance, a beverage bottler employing the Air Flow Saver at a blow-off station witnessed an 80% reduction in compressed air usage, saving substantial energy costs. The system’s innovative technology detects and opens precisely when needed, resulting in significant energy savings and a quick return on investment.

In summary, most users of compressed air unknowingly burn CO² due to a lack of systems or information. Consider the financial waste and unnecessary CO² emissions associated with well-maintained plants:

  • 250kW compressor power – 230 tons of CO² and 65,000 EUR annually
  • 1000kW compressor power – 920 tons CO² and 260,000 EUR per year
  • 5000kW compressor power – 4,600 tons CO² and 1,300,000 EUR per year

Implementing the Air Flow Saver system yields some of the highest CO² savings in the market. Apart from reducing environmental impact, it contributes positively to the bottom line within the first year of implementation.

Arguably, compressed air savings stand out as the most affordable, fastest, and easiest method to reduce carbon emissions. On average, every Air Flow Saver system reduces between 10 to 15 tons of CO² per year – equivalent to the impact of planting 1,000 trees. Beyond significant CO² reductions, there are additional compelling reasons to act:

  1. Optimally managed compressed air systems reduce the risk of downtime and quality issues caused by unstable compressed air supply.
  2. Efficient compressed air systems enhance satisfaction levels for employees, customers, and contribute to annual reports and ISO requirements for continuous improvement.
  3. You can significantly reduce total investment and operating costs over the life of the compressed air system.
