U.S. Plastics Manufacturers Stand to Save Energy, Boost Competitiveness,
and Reduce Costs
The plastics industry consumes approximately 6% of all the energy
used by U.S. industries, and it is valued at $6 billion (based
on 1998 DOE and other data). DOE estimates that reducing the plastics
industry's energy use by even 1% by 2010 could shave at least
$100 million from its total annual energy costs.
In 2003, DOE and The Society of the Plastics Industry, Inc. (SPI)
formed a partnership to identify the potential for plastics manufacturers
to reduce their overall energy use, enhance productivity, and
save money. They worked on a series of energy assessments conducted
by seven DOE-sponsored Industrial Assessment Centers (IAC) at
11 SPI member companies.
The major finding of this effort is that U.S plastics manufacturing
companies can boost their competitiveness, productivity, and profits
by taking steps to improve energy and process efficiency. The
report and case studies below describe the results of these assessments
at the small and medium-sized plastics plants that were the focus
of this effort. Those that have implemented IAC recommendations
are already saving an average of $45,000-or nearly 10%-on their
energy annual energy bills.

could be adapted and replicated throughout
