EnviroMan - Environmentally adapted metal manufacturing processes; chemicals, energy and  waste material recycling

The overall vision for the project is a sustainable and waste free production, including the view on waste as a potential resource. The project is proposed as an integrated effort to take advantage of previously gained achievments, to demonstrate and evaluate new technologies according to feasibility for implementation in production and to support the further development of approaches of importance for sustainable production.

ENVIROMAN project results


One task in the EnviroMan project is to look at cleaning of surfaces and evaluation of surface cleaniness for heat treatment. In connection with this task a Master Thesis work have been carried out regarding environmental assessment of cleaning systems in connection with heat treatment. Report from the work "Environmental assessment of cleaning systems in connection with heat treatment"

Energy Perfomance Indicators (EPI) -database

Would you like to compare your company's energy use to others or your company's improvements in energy efficiency?
Open ENIGs benchmarking tool "EPI-database"

What is the energy perfomance indicators?

Energy ratios is used to effectively be able to compare energy performance. For example, it is possible to compare annual energy use for the total number of production hours. The important is that the EPI is relevant to the business and possible to  follow-up, to be able to describe the work with energy efficiency effectively.

Examples of EPI:s

• MWh / turnover
• MWh / employee
• MWh / m²
• MWh / manufactured goods, be etc.
• CO2/MWh
• Annual number of MWh / annual number of production hours primary energy consumption / value added
