In the new top class display and consumer packaging plant that DS Smith is currently building in Erlensee, Germany, the first machines are currently being installed, one after the other. One of them is the new machine for the creation of compressed air for production machines, as the company says in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
With this new solution DS Smith is backing the principle of cogeneration and is therefore making a major contribution towards significantly reducing CO² emissions in this are and therefore easing the stress on the environment. This environmentally friendly technology was presented to a wider audience at the ‘Woche der Umwelt’ (Environment Week) that look place Berlin in June.
"According to the previous state of the art, only around 10% of energy used could be converted into compressed air," explains Peter Otto, CEO of Postberg + Co.
The new machine uses a gas-powered combustion engine - the machine is highly efficient thanks to the parallel use of the waste heat produced in compressed air production. With the new system the CO² emissions can be reduced by up to 65% compared to electrical compressors.
DS Smith is a European leading packaging company of customer-specific packaging with emphasis on state-of-the art packaging design and local service close to customer facilities.
