Mauser Packaging Solutions was awarded the Oakville Hydro Conservation Leadership Award on Wednesday, March 27. The award is given annually as part of the Oakville Awards for Business Excellence presented by the Oakville, Onatrio Chamber of Commerce and Rotary Club of Oakville West. The Oakville facility received this award for their commitment to reducing the amount of energy consumed in the facility and subsequently, reducing their environmental footprint.
After several years of taking steps to reduce energy by investing in more energy efficient equipment and updating lighting to LED technology, the facility wanted to do more. In collaboration with Oakville Hydro, compressed air was identified as a major user of electricity in the facility. An opportunity to potentially decrease the amount of energy used by 50% was identified.
The Oakville facility implemented a new compressed air system in March 2018. In the first year, the system reduced electricity use in the plant by 916 MWh (megawatt hours) and reduced demand by 104 Kw (Kilowatts), enough to power over 100 homes for one year.
This energy saving technology was recently replicated at Mauser Packaging Solutions’ Cidra, Puerto Rico facility and is being considered at additional facilities. “This project is an example of Mauser Packaging Solutions’ commitment to environmental responsibility,” said Wojciech Tymczak, Corporate Automation Engineering Project Manager at Mauser. “We are committed to leaving a lighter ecological footprint and supporting the communities in which we operate through sustainability. This energy saving technology will deliver tangible, scalable and long lasting results.”
