For many of us when the question of sustainability arises the primary question is what are we doing that is sustainable and what are the implications long term? And are we doing anything about it?  When considered on a global scale the answer is most probably no.  That being said, it then all comes down to the company’s and their employees attitude and stewardship.  And in the end that just becomes good business.

Historically energy, not a major cost factor and waste heat recovery was not an attractive ROI.  However, going forward, energy costs are rising; environmental awareness is increasing; and with this comes increased accountability with possible energy allocation.  This potential reality should be shared with your employees.

With the cost of fuel on the increase, many bakers are finding it beneficial to install gas meters on individual pieces of equipment, instead of just having one master plant-wide meter.  This enables them to determine precisely how the fuel is being used and where efficiencies can be gained by making equipment and/or process changes.  For information on efficiency considerations see information on SmartBake™ and TOC™ (Banner-Day Systems) or the following Technical Briefs on our website:

Banner-Day’s overall performance with energy reduction has been up to 20 to 25% while maintaining the high quality standards established by the baker. Recent installations suggest that even greater reductions are available. See chart for more detail.
