Reducing Green House Gas Emissions in the Marine Sector
Powering large cruise ships and merchant vessels requires an enormous amount of energy and fuel. A recent innovation by Silverstream Technologies incorporates Atlas Copco’s compressor and blower technology to reduce hull drag and improve energy efficiency.

Energy

Optimizing Piping Configurations for Energy Efficiency
What’s one of the smartest ways a manufacturing facility can save on energy costs over the long term? If you’re thinking along the lines of compressed air efficiency then you’re correct. The single biggest cost associated with producing compressed air is the energy required to power the compressor. To save money in the long run, it’s good practice to maximize compressed air energy efficiency.

Use VSD Compressors, Save Energy (and Money)
Whether you call it VFD, frequency converter or inverter, VSD technology by any other name is just as efficient. On average, VSD compressors use about 35 percent less energy than their fixed-speed counter parts. But what does a 35 percent reduction in energy costs really look like? Well, that depends on your plant.

Use Energy Efficient Compressors to Attain LEED Certification
According a U.S. Energy Information Administration report released in October, manufacturing energy consumption increased between 2010 and 2014 for the first time in almost a decade. Prior to 2014, energy consumption in manufacturing industries had been steadily decreasing since 2002. But companies still have incentive to become energy efficient. Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) certification helps buildings keep their net environmental impact low in all phases of development, from construction to operation. Installing an Atlas Copco energy efficient compressor is just one way manufacturers can work toward achieving this status.
