Casting Clinic #12 - Energy Efficiency

The first Casting Clinic session cycle anniversary will be marked on June 7, with the 12th edition dedicated to the theme "Energy Efficiency".

Historically, as societies evolve, their comfort needs increase and, consequently, so does energy consumption. The same is true when it comes to companies’ developments.

The specific case of foundry companies is quite critical, since electricity represents, in many cases, the highest invoice to pay. The foundry industry is thus extremely exposed to variations in the energy market and must invest in an increasingly optimized and rational consumption to remain competitive in the external market and for the wellbeing of the environment.

However, precise answers to the questions are often found missing: What are the best actions to minimize energy consumption without compromising production and product quality? How to be more rational in energy consumption? How does price change and how do you buy energy?

To help us answer these questions, this session will feature the special participation of Eng. Afonso Oliveira from EDP Comercial. Graduated in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto, he has spent his entire career in the energy area, currently being Energy Efficiency B2B Project Leader. There will be two presentations of practical work cases to improve energy efficiency, developed at Sakthi Portugal and Sonafi.

We count on your presence and contribution to develop a strong, united and sustainable foundry industry!
