RB Group partners a global leader in advanced materials to deliver major operational cost savings of £100,000pa resulting in rapid payback as well as hitting their compliance and sustainability goals.
With project sanctioning and funding requiring very stringent criteria in todays’ competitive market, RB Plant knew from the start that any proposed scheme put forward would have to stand up to scrutiny to justify approval for implementation.
RB Plant also had a limited budget within which to complete this feasibility therefore to minimize engineering fees and keep project milestones on track, RB Plant:
Having previously completed similar projects successfully for other manufacturers, RB Plant already had the benefit of a proven methodology which could be readily adapted to meet Zotefoams’ goals.
Criteria earmarked included:
This enabled Zotefoams to prioritise the most lucrative schemes thereby making the case stronger when applying for capital funding to execute the projects.
In total 7 schemes were earmarked and evaluated by RB Plant which achieved the following:
All 7 schemes approved by Zotefoams for implementation due to the robustness of each case. Four of the major schemes included:
During the first year following start-up, £100K/yr estimated total operating cost savings were recorded which at this rate would result in a payback period < 3 years.
