Manufacturers 'cutting carbon emissions'

Manufacturers 'cutting carbon emissions'
Manufacturers are now embracing energy efficiency programmes before government regulations are introduced, ClimateChangeCorp.com has reported.

Manufacturing firms could soon be under pressure form national governments and supra-national bodies like the EU because the sector accounts for a large share of total greenhouse gas emissions.

Speaking to ClimateChangeCorp.com, energy expert Geoff Newman said manufacturers and companies form other sectors should not be under the impression that installing a solar panel is enough.

"This approach will not deliver energy and financial savings, let alone reduce carbon emissions."

He said manufacturers must first of all implement an energy efficiency drive

According to the Energy Saving Trust, a high-efficiency condensing boiler with heating controls is a good way of recovering waste heat.

In fact they convert at least 90 percent of their fuel into heat, against 78 percent for conventional boilers.ADNFCR-1235-ID-18585778-ADNFCR
