Alpha Packaging

Implement practices and install equipment to reduce energy consumption by 20% at this manufacturer of plastic bottles and jars primarily for the nutritional, pharmaceutical, personal care, housewares, consumer chemical, and food and beverage markets. The plastic container industry is highly competitive both domestically and internationally, and controlling energy costs is essential to maintaining competitive advantage. The first year of this project yielded an 8% reduction in electrical energy costs and a 25% reduction in scrap loss. Additional opportunities for savings will be developed.
