This unique book provides a structured approach to the techniques of energy management and covers the main topics of relevance to plastics processors. It is designed as a workbook for practical use, and it contains advice which can be applied within companies involved in all types of plastics processing, in order to reduce their energy usage and costs.

The main principle applied throughout the book is the reduction of the amount of energy used to process each kilogramme of material, resulting in lasting savings. Benchmarking data is provided to enable companies to compare their performance with their competitors, and ‘Where are you now?’ charts indicate the best opportunities for improvements. Practical solutions are provided to manage and reduce energy usage across the entire manufacturing site, including general buildings and offices, as well as processing equipment, factory services and related operations.

The author is a renowned expert in this field, and has extensive experience in carrying out energy surveys and designing energy management systems in plastics factories. This is a companion volume to his successful guide to Cost Management in Plastics Processing, second edition, which was published in 2007.
