Project : Pactiv Industrial Energy Efficiency Assessments

Pactiv -- Chicago, Illinois

CHA conducted energy efficiency assessments for plastics processing plants in the Chicago area. The process flow and operation of each plant was analyzed in order to develop recommendations that deliver immediate and long-term energy and cost savings improvements. Large energy usage systems analyzed included:

  • Process Cooling
  • Chilled Water
  • Compressed Air
  • Material Handling/Processing
  • Manufacturing Ventilation
  • Steam
  • Controls

CHA developed baselines to evaluate improvements and predict energy and cost savings resulting from the recommended changes. We conducted a simple payback cost-benefit analysis and made priority recommendations for each energy conservation measure. Over $2 million in savings were identified with the average recommended improvements resulting in a simple payback of less than two years.
