Energy prices for industry continue to rise - SKZ shows potential for savings

For small to medium-sized industrial companies, the price of electricity rose by 70% from the first to the second half of 2022. Saving measures in plastics processing are becoming imperative. SKZ now offers online courses on energy efficiency in injection molding and extrusion.

SKZ offers courses on energy efficiency in injection molding and extrusion

SKZ is therefore expanding its education portfolio to include compact online courses that help partners and customers to quickly identify adjusting screws in energy management and thus reduce costs quickly. "Having already included a course on energy efficiency in injection molding in our program and received numerous inquiries, we have expanded our offering to include a course on energy savings in extrusion as early as the first quarter of 2023 and plan to cover even more manufacturing processes," explains Matthias Ruff, Sales Manager at SKZ. In addition to the extrusion process itself, peripheral processes will also be scrutinized. Thus, topics such as waste heat utilization and production adaptation are also included in the course program.

Both private end consumers and industrial companies were confronted with an enormous increase in electricity prices last year. Private households are trying to counteract this, as can be seen from the rapid increase in the number of photovoltaic-equipped roofs. In the energy-intensive plastics processing industry, countermeasures are also needed. In this context, it is more important than ever to identify potential savings. According to a survey by the German Association of Energy and Water Industries, the price of electricity for new contracts rose by over 50% from 2021 to 2022 and by a further 70% from the first to the second half of 2022. An energy-intensive sector such as plastics processing in particular must now leverage potential to realize savings.
