ELGi Compressors Europe, a subsidiary of ELGi Equipments Limited has announced the completion of an upgrade of the compressed air system at the Rubber Resources’ BV manufacturing site in Maastricht,
The Netherlands. Following the modernization project, Rubber Resources – a major player in rubber re-manufacturing in Europe – experienced increased efficiency and lower energy consumption which contributed to lowering their carbon footprint, according to a communication from the company.
Chantal Bulten, General Manager at Rubber Resources, said “Our mission is the sustainable re-use of rubber thus it is our priority to make our processes, especially our compressed air, as energy efficient as possible.
It was therefore an easy decision to replace the existing 180kW compressor with a 110kW Variable Speed ELGi EG Premium Series unit, which resulted in us achieving class leading energy efficiency, reliability, and low maintenance costs with a support network and expertise to match”.
Chris Ringlstetter, President at ELGi Europe said, “Compressed air in Europe accounts for approximately 10 percent of Europe’s total energy output.
Energy savings compliance norms for companies in The Netherlands are quite stringent. ELGi’s EG Series with its built in variable frequency drive, and the lowest power consumption, has been instrumental in reducing the total energy consumption of Rubber Resources’ 24/7 manufacturing operations.”
