As a result of investments and projects since its establishment, Cargill Turkey’s Orhangazi Factory has decreased its total electricity usage by approximately 6000 MWh and its natural gas usage by approximately 1.7 million sm³. However, the factory continues to raise the bar by adding new energy efficiency projects to its agenda. One such project has been replacing its fixed-speed compressors with ZT 90 VSD FF variable speed oilfree compressors from Atlas Copco.
Cargill has set Environmental Sustainability Targets that increase energy and water efficiency by 5% on a global level and improve greenhouse gas density by 5%. The company had set a goal to increase its renewable energy use to 12.5% within its overall energy portfolio by 2015. However, Cargill has already exceeded this target and today renewable energies constitute 13.5% of Cargill’s energy portfolio. Cargill Turkey is committed to reaching these global targets, and at its Orhangazi Factory new energy efficiency projects will help the company consume less while producing more.
