PZ Cussons: 25% Site utility cost reduction with Carbon Desktop
PZ Cussons have used Carbon Desktop for effective monitoring and targeting. This has enabled them to reduce their total site utility cost by a massive 25%.
PZ Cussons is a global consumer products group with brands which span the 4 categories of Personal Care and Beauty, Home Care, Food and Nutrition and Electricals.
PZ Cussons Tangerang intalled Carbon Desktop which helped them to reduce their total site utility cost by a massive 25%.
After using Carbon Desktop to identify that 85% of the steam was used in the seam ejector, the site team drilled into this data to optimise this asset. They installed automatic valves, adjusted the vacuum conditions and repaired identified leaks. This resulted in a 30% reduction in site gas use which was verified in Carbon Desktop and on the site utility bills.
Using Carbon Desktop's virtual meters, the site team identified that compressed air makes up a significant proportion of the total site electrical load. Savings could be accurately projected for a number of improvement measures, which supported the business case for this investment. Air leaks were fixed, a VSD compressor installed and compressors sequenced through a central control system. These measures achieved a 27% reduction in the electricity used by the site air compressors.
