HVAC energy efficiency in textile factories

Textile factories around the world employ tens of millions of people and use large amounts of energy for their heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. Introducing energy-efficient solutions and processes to reduce the energy consumption of HVAC in these workplaces could bring about a significant reduction in the footprint of the textiles and apparel produced.

Role of compressed air system in textile industries

Compressed air, also referred to as the "4th Utility" (after electricity, water & steam) is one of the major energy consumption utilities in any industry. Compressed air is a key utility in the textile industry, both the segments of natural & man-made textiles. Compressed air is more or less required at every stage of manufacturing particularly large volume of air is required for integrated cotton textile industries

Energy efficiency in manufacturing facilities

Energy efficiency can be achieved by evaluating energy end uses, and by implementing measures to reduce the total amount of energy consumed for one or more of the end uses. This paper discusses recommended assessment procedures and observed energy-saving opportunities for some of the most common industrial energy systems.
