NEW FEATURE: GUIDE TO ENERGY EFFICIENT CLEANROOM PROJECTS

Posted on

EECO2’s Keith Beattie and Matt Harris have worked together to produce a new feature for the August edition of Cleanroom Technology; ‘Guide to energy-efficient cleanroom projects’. This feature looks at delivering efficient and resilient manufacturing facilities in the energy intensive pharma industry. 

“The energy use in pharma processes is significantly affected by initial design decisions, making it an excellent opportunity for improving lifecycle cost visibility at an early stage”



Matt tells how sustainability reviews are often left until the late stages of a design, so nearly everything is already in place and it is very hard to make any real changes. He goes on to describe how this affects the new buildings as they become a replica of what has come before… with only slight changes. 

“Through EECO2’s experience of providing a range of services—efficiency workshops, survey, design—we see first-hand even relatively new facilities operating well below optimal levels. This highlights many of the issues with the standard construction process”



The piece discusses ‘old vs. new’, including why new facilities are often much less efficient than older ones and what needs to change for future design and build projects to become more energy efficient. One of the main suggestions is to keep it simple, with clear targets at the beginning of the project. 

“The efficient and resilient facilities of tomorrow don’t need to emerge from science fiction neither do they require huge additional budgets. We have the technology and design tools to deliver them today at no significant cost premium”

CLEANROOM TECHNOLOGY CONFERENCE

Posted on


This May, the Cleanroom Technology Conference will take place in Birmingham’s National Conference Centre, on 21st-22nd of the month. EECO2 attended last year, but this year the team will be exhibiting (stand A11). In addition to the exhibition stand, Keith Beattie of EECO2 will be speaking at the event, presenting the theme of “Cleanroom energy reduction – possibilities for now and in the near future”. The event is so popular again this year, that it has now sold out. If you would like some more information about Keith’s talk, but cannot attend the event, get in touch.


This year’s conference will bring together leaders and innovators within the cleanroom and contamination control industry to take a closer look at industry trends, standards and future of cleanroom design and technologies. The Cleanroom Technology Conference will highlight best practice and regulations affecting both cleanroom design and cleanroom operation across various sectors for those working in controlled environments and cleanrooms.

The event layout, below, shows the exhibitors, including EECO2 on stand A11.


EECO2 will also appear in the Cleanroom Technology magazine this month with an article discussing real-time optimisation, demand-based control and fail-safe retrofitting. The article identifies the benefits of having an intelligent HVAC system and provides more information on the Intelligent Cleanroom Control System, ‘a brainchild’ of EECO2.

The ICCS has been nominated for the Cleanroom Technology Conference awards this year, for ‘Best Cleanroom Innovation’ and for ‘Best Exhibitor Product – Technology’.

If you want any more information on EECO2, Keith’s presentation or ICCS, get in touch with the EECO2 team.

ESOS PHASE II

Posted on

ESOS PHASE II DEADLINE: 5TH DECEMBER 2019

With less than 8 months left until the mandatory Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme deadline, it’s extremely important to begin your compliance procedure. Now is the time to start thinking about ESOS Phase 2, become compliant and avoid fines of up to £235,000. The Environmental Agency are encouraging all participants to start the process as soon as possible to avoid the potential of shortage of Lead Assessors, especially after the chaos experienced in the 6 month run up to the phase one deadline.

See ESOS as an opportunity

If you look at ESOS as an additional cost, that is all it will every be. But if you see it as an opportunity to investigate potential energy and cost savings, you may end up saving a lot more than you spend. 

Analysis of a sample of the ESOS assessments undertaken by the Carbon Trust shows an average energy spend of approximately £1.8 million. The average reduction achievable through cost-effective measures was around 20 percent, which for business with an energy spend of £1.8 million would result in a saving of £360,000


Why EECO2?

With EECO2, your Energy Assessor will not just complete a simple walk through, but the team will perform a full evaluation and detailed report, specifying all potential energy saving projects, leading to a higher chance of more savings for the site.

Get in touch with EECO2 about ESOS.




More information about ESOS from The Carbon Trust:

What is ESOS?

The ESOS Regulations 2014 bring into force Article 8 of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive and mandate that large organisations in the UK undertake comprehensive assessments of energy use and energy efficiency opportunities at least once every four years.

Who is affected?

The criteria for inclusion to ESOS is not entirely straightforward, but essentially it applies to any large undertaking that carries out a trade or a business (most commonly a Company), and any corporate group where at least one member of the UK group meets the ESOS criteria.

  • A large undertaking is one that employs at least 250 people,
  • Or has an annual turnover in excess of €50 million and a balance sheet in excess of €43 million.
  • Most public sector bodies are excluded, but other organisations that receive some public funding, such as universities, may qualify.

CASE STUDY – FEASIBILITY STUDY AT API SITE

Posted on Download

The latest case study from EECO2 focuses on an API manufacturing client site in Ireland. The client was developing an energy saving plan for the whole site, to reduce energy, carbon emissions and energy cost. The client engaged the EECO2 team to work up potential projects in more detail and also generate new ideas. EECO2 was commissioned to provide HVAC feasibility studies for energy reduction projects.

Method: The team began with a data collection exercise, liaising with site team, followed by a desktop review and initial analysis. The next step was a visit to the client site, to get a physical understanding of the issues, constraints and client expectations.

Results: Solutions including air change rate reduction and AHU fan efficiency improvements were involved in the 5 major HVAC projects refined by the feasibility study. The annual energy and cost savings identified can be seen on the case study PDF – 2,840 MWh and €174,000. More details on the additional solutions, can be found on the PDF and the case study itself.

Follow up: The API manufacturing client site continues to work through and implement the suggested projects and aims to reach the savings predicted.

NEW TWO-PART PAPER IN CLEAN AIR AND CONTAINMENT REVIEW

Posted on Download


A new two-part article has been published by Clean Air and Containment Review (CACR). The article, by Shuji Chen (EECO2), Andrew Butterworth (EECO2) and L. Jiang (University of Liverpool), appears in CACR issue 37 (Winter/Spring 2019) and is entitled ‘Air quality indices and cleanroom ventilation equations, and their application in a cleanroom HVAC system. Part one: theoretical considerations.’

This is the first part of a two-part paper, which summarizes current understanding of air quality indices and cleanroom ventilation equations and their use in a cleanroom heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system. The equations for air quality indices, including the contaminant removal effectiveness index (CRE) and the air change effectiveness index (ACE) are reviewed, based on particles rather than gases, and dispersion rates from personnel and machinery are examined. The cleanroom ventilation equations, together with the air quality index and the dispersion rate of particles, are then used to calculate the minimum air change rate (ACR) that is required in non-unidirectional cleanrooms to achieve less than the maximum specified concentration of airborne particles.

The second part of the paper, set to be published in issue 38, will describe the experimental work carried out by EECO2 Ltd.

Read the article.

Contact EECO2 about the article.



CACR is a quarterly journal and comes as one of the member benefits for members of CCN (Contamination Control Network), the society for cleanroom, clean air and containment practitioners. To join CNN please contact membership@theccnet.org.

EECO2 IN CLEANROOM TECHNOLOGY

Posted on


The May 2019 issue of Cleanroom Technology features an article from EECO2, discussing real-time optimisation, demand-based control and fail-safe retrofitting.
In the article, the benefits of having an intelligent HVAC system are evaluated. It details the Intelligent Cleanroom Control System, ‘a brainchild’ of EECO2

The piece also covers retrofitting;
“Traditionally, retrofitting an intelligent HVAC system into an existing cleanroom has been a challenge because many solutions on the market could only be implemented successfully into a brand-new cleanroom. Despite the clear benefits of newer HVAC control systems, businesses are often reluctant to upgrade due to a fear of failure. That does not need to be the case anymore.”

The article is now available online, before the May issue is released. Read the article.
