The Quest for Energy Efficiency –
Potential Not Yet Exhausted

Article published in the Neue Zürcher Zeitung (Equity) on 11 October 2012

By Yvonne Helble, Editor (German only)

Introduction

Swiss companies could still improve their energy efficiency substantially, according to the findings of a new study by Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts. As an energy-intensive sector, the chemical industry especially has potential to optimise its consumption even more.

Chemical industry at the forefront

The chemical industry is evidently not lacking in expertise in energy efficiency, not least because it ranks together with the pharmaceutical industry as the largest consumer in the manufacturing sector, according to the latest report published by the Swiss Federal Office of Energy. Improving efficiency has consequently been an issue for a long time. Thomas Würsch, CEO of CP Pump Systems, a manufacturer of magnetic drive pumps based in Zofingen and employing some sixty people, mainly sees savings potential in the use of high efficiency pumps in production. Würsch, whose company is a supplier to the chemical industry, feels that this potential is still under-utilised. Needless to say, CP Pump Systems is dedicated to energy efficiency in its own operations. A case in point is its integrated heat recovery system allowing the waste heat from two compressors to be captured for heating. The company also tries to avoid electricity consumption during peak hours, where possible. So, for instance, it does not test pumps over lunchtime to help spread the load on the power grid.
