Among manufacturing sectors in Australia, food makers trail only behind the mining industry as the biggest spenders on energy.
The combination of inefficient energy spending and high usage becomes increasingly problematic when taking into account rising energy costs and insecurity of energy supplies.
So what can a food manufacturer do? Fortunately, advances in one of the most energy hungry processes – hot water heating – is providing a viable solution in the form of industrial heat pumps, with the ability to slash overall energy bills in a single equipment upgrade.
The following whitepaper will look at the energy requirements of hot water usage in the food manufacturing sector, the future of energy supplies and prices in Australia, and at how industrial heat pumps are helping food manufacturers decrease their energy bills, and increase competitiveness.
