Forehearths Process Control - Infrared Analysis SystemCosts & Benefits
|Parent Process: Conditioning and Forming|
|Energy Savings Potential||
Typical energy savings are estimated at 2-3% of total plants energy use through reduction of the reject rate. A plan in Netherlands was able to reduce fuel consumption of the plant by 5% (Worrell et al., 2008. p.71).
|CO2 Emission Reduction Potential|
The installation of this system provided a plant in the Netherlands with total annual benefits of over $3 million/year, of which $200,000 was due to energy savings (Worrell et al., 2008. p.71).
