The Challenge
ORBIS Corporation strives to make a positive difference in communities in which it operates and it is committed to improving the environment. In 2010, ORBIS launched its first Annual Sustainability Report to ensure they provide solutions that both create economic value and are as friendly to the environment as possible. With electricity prices rising year after year, ORBIS was determined to reduce their energy demand and cut costs.
The Solution
During a dispatch, ORBIS shuts down some of the machines that are not process-critical, like the grinder and the extruder. They also pay close attention to the weather and decide if they can adjust any other non essential load, like air conditioning or lighting. Depending on the orders they have that day, they can even shut down some of the molding machines.
Quantitative Benefit
  • The energy curtailment plan is an integral part of their strategy to reach their 20% absolute reduction in carbon emissions target by 2020.
