REDUCING FUME CUPBOARD ENERGY USAGE IN R&D CHEMISTRY LABORATORIES

Site: | Location: United Kingdom | Sector: Research & Development Labs

project brief

EECO2 were commissioned to deliver an assessment of fume cupboard energy consumption at UK R&D chemistry laboratories

METHODOLOGY

We were tasked with targeting fume cupboard capture face velocity (CFV) reduction and introducing night setback in order to reduce energy demand without compromising on laboratory personnel safety.

SOLUTION

We carried out the following:

Produced a detailed smoke trial approach document for client approval

Proved the feasibility of reducing CFV by carrying out a smoke visualisation trial

Produced a bespoke smoke trial video matrix to simplify video analysis of trial

Recommended replacement of existing laboratory supply air diffusers

Demonstrated capability to safely reduce existing CFV’s to level agreed with EHS / users

Developed diversity and night setback strategy for client review

Complete risk assessments, change and regulatory documentation

Results

Energy savings delivered (per year)

293,000 kWh

Energy cost savings (per year)

£12,000

Emissions reduction (per year)

75.4 tonnes
