我们继续在减少制造我们的产品.所需的能源方面取得进步。我们设立了一个目标，即以 2005 年为基准年，到 2025 年将能源强度（制造单位产品所需的能源用量）降低 10%。
Optimizing energy usage in Sarnia
As part of our pursuit of efficient technologies, our facility in Sarnia, Canada, successfully implemented several measures to improve energy efficiency.
The facility converted approximately 100 light fixtures from high-pressure sodium lights to LED lights, saving an estimated 40,500 kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity per year. Additionally, over a two-year period, the facility initiated several improvements to reduce its usage of natural gas, including the addition of new building insulation to reduce heat loss and the installation of several new electric steam condensate pumps that allow for the recovery of hot water. The combined savings from the improvement projects was approximately 1,800,000 m3 of avoided natural gas consumption, an amount equivalent to that used by approximately 375 households in Canada over the course of a year.
Converting waste heat to energy in Shimonoseki
Our Shimonoseki, Japan, site recently found a new way to convert excess steam to electricity, reducing our dependency on purchased electricity.
The facility is required to incinerate 100% of tail gas produced by the carbon black manufacturing process and convert the heat to steam. With the installation of three STEAMSTAR™ generators, we can now convert that steam to electrical power. Each machine can generate up to 160 kilowatts of energy, and the steam that cannot be used internally is sold to a neighboring facility
Solar Energy Project Planned for Billerica
We recently reached an agreement with SunPower to install a 1.12-megawatt solar project and integrated energy storage system at our Business and Technology Center in Billerica, Massachusetts.
Construction is anticipated to start in summer of 2019. The integrated solar parking canopy project will feature high-efficiency SunPower® solar panels and is expected to produce enough electricity to offset about 20 percent of the facility's energy needs, reducing our grid electricity costs. This project will contribute to our long-term sustainability efforts and help meet Massachusetts' renewable energy commitment.
在 2015 年对我们的消耗进行稽查的一个项目后，2017 年，我们位于比利时 Locin 和 Pepinster 的两个工厂的效率都有了明显的提高。
2015 年，在位于比利时 Loncin 和 Pepinster 的两个色母粒工厂进行了能源消耗稽查。根据这些稽查的结果，开展了多个项目来降低能源消耗，包括隔离热油和水蒸汽管道、将生产区域的照明升级为 LED、购买更加节能的设备，以及使用新的高效率天然气锅炉来升级烧油的蒸汽锅炉。通过这些工作，到 2017 年年底，GHG 年排放量减少了 500 公吨，大约是这两个工厂总排放量的 10%。正在考虑其他措施以继续这些工作。
