A machine that is applicable across industry: The Blade Compressor®, demonstrates 21% less energy than current machines.
Compressors are estimated to account for 10 per cent of total industrial electricity use. Almost as much as 40 per cent in some plants. In the EU that equates to over 10TWh of electricity and 4.3 million tonnes of CO2 every single year.
Compressed air is often described as the fourth utility after water, electricity and gas since it is found across every industry imaginable. From pneumatic conveying, to wastewater aeration. Also other industrial processes, such as powering tools in factories, compressors are an essential component of any major operation. They can be found in the food & drink, pharmaceutical, water & wastewater treatment, cement, mining and textile manufacturing sectors amongst others.
