Molson Coors Saves Money, Cuts Emissions With Onsite Power
Brewer Molson Coors has saved £750,000 (about $ 1.14 million) from an investment of £12.4 million (about $18 million) in an onsite energy center in Burton-upon-Trent, Staffordshire, UK.
BusinessGreen reports that the facility reduced its carbon dioxide equivalents emissions by 6.5 percent and halved its production of nitrogen oxides. The report says that the energy center powers three natural gas boilers, all of which have up to date low nitrogen oxide burners, feed water economizers, blowdown heat recovery and variable speed pump and fan drives.
The story says that Molson Coors aims to cut energy consumption by 25 percent and greenhouse gas emissions by 15 percent by 2020, compared to 2011 levels. The company has reduced global energy use by 2.4 percent, emissions by 2.4 percent and water use by 3.3 percent. It sends all no waste to landfills.
The onsite energy sector is growing as grid modernizations lag and environmental rules increase the cost of coal plants. Other recent examples of companies employing onsite energy are Rolls-Royce and the Statz Brothers in Wisconsin.
