  • Waste less air
  • Produce less air
  • Reduce compressed air system load

The old saying the only certainty in life is death and taxes still rings true. Now however there are other certainties the manufacturing industry must also consider

  • Global energy prices will continue to spiral
  • The implementation of a carbon tax is imminent
  • Power consumed in producing compressed air will have an increasing impact their bottom line
  • Inefficiencies in compressed air systems typically account for up to 30% of energy waste

Energy costs are rising

The Australian Energy Market Commission forecasts most Australian states and territories face nominal increases of up to 40% in retail electricity prices by 2013.

Don’t think carbon pricing will have an impact on your business?

If you think that just because your business is not one of the top 500 polluters targeted by the Federal Government’s proposed carbon pricing scheme that you won’t be affected by carbon pricing think again.

You may be eligible for Federal Government assistance

The Government has allocated $200 million over six years to the Clean Technology Food and Foundries Investment Program.

The program will assist food and beverage processing and metal foundries to embrace less emissions-intensive and more energy-efficient production processes.

Businesses that invest in improving their energy efficiency will benefit from reduced energy costs.
