Industrial carbon reduction measures

Industrial measures are based on the grouping of thousands of different measures into broader categories to aid analysis and presentation.

In descending order of effectiveness:

  • Burners

  • Drying and separation

  • Refrigeration and air conditioning

  • Lighting

  • Compressed air

  • Heat recovery with RHI

  • Design

  • Low temperature heating

  • Renewable heat with RHI

  • Building energy management

  • Space heating

  • New food and drink plant

  • High temperature heating

  • Fabrication and machining

  • Operation and maintenance

  • Controls

  • Energy management

  • Process improvement

  • Ventilation

  • Information technology

  • Motors and drives

  • insulation
