Lycopodium has assisted various clients in implementing energy efficiency projects. A sample of these projects is outlined below.
Chilled Water Cooling System – Yakult Australia, Victoria
Use of an ice tank permitted use of off-peak power and smaller plant saving energy.
LPG Extraction from Natural Gas Feed to Fertilizer Plant – Burrup Fertilizers, West Australia
LPG is present in the natural gas feed used for fertiliser production. Removal of LPG increased efficiency in the fertiliser plant and the recovered LPG is used for other energy requirements.
Ethanol Plant – Swan Hill Ethanol, Victoria
Integration of heat exchangers allowed waste heat that would normally be lost by rejection through cooling towers to be utilised in the evaporators and distillation columns.
