Energy efficiency in the Plastics Industry in Action

Read examples of New Zealand plastic businesses benefiting from investments in energy efficient technologies:

  • Viscount Plastics upgraded their cooling water systems and reduced their energy bill by $38,000 per year in the process.
  • Monaghan Plastics switched to all-electric injection moulding machines and discovered just how efficient these machines are for manufacturing products with longer cycle times.
  • Talbot Plastics invested in an electric moulding machine and discovered it used only 35% of the energy of the machine it replaced.
  • Axiam Plastics invested in a vacuum drier which reduced their energy use as well as increased their throughput.
