Energy efficiency evaluation

The efficiency with which tanneries use energy is open to considerable variation. Opportunities to assess such energy efficiency are rare. This investigation has assessed tannery energy use and target areas for improvement.

A review of production energy consumption from targeted tanneries chosen by partners as being indicative of the EU sector, with waste production has been carried out. The relative quantity of waste produced, with an evaluation of the energy value of that waste allowed the consortium to ascribe an energy disposed and potentially available figure. This information was utilised along with the technology evaluation matrix to illustrate to the target sector the potential benefits of the application of gasification to their process.
