The Moy Park team at Anwick has vastly reduced fuel-oil consumption following the installation of a state-of-the-art heat recovery system at the site. The revolutionary heating system – which delivers environmental, financial and efficiency benefits – was installed and uniquely configured by a specialist engineering firm, making it the first system of its kind in the world.
The new heat recovery system has reduced oil usage by 600,000 litres per annum, and reduced carbon emissions by 1,430 tonnes of CO2e – equivalent to 185 UK homes. The system has also increased water storage, improved cleaning processes and reduced noise at the Anwick site. The heating system’s exclusive configuration means that the Anwick factory utilises waste refrigeration heat, which would normally be discarded outdoors. The recovered heat is then used instead of boilers to heat water for processing. The system has also lowered water and chemical consumption from the site’s cooling towers resulting in less waste.
