In various industries served by Santa Catarina Gas Co, opportunities to reduce energy losses that can be obtained with relatively simple measures, resulting in lower specific consumption of natural gas are noticed. The main studies conducted in 2013 involving the company's customers and universities of Santa Catarina, particularly in ceramic and textile sector, are presented. These sectors are very important to the local economy with dozens of businesses consuming natural gas and exporting its products, therefore the control of production costs is a very important factor. Potential heat recovery above 13% was identified for ceramic processes and above 17% in textile dyeing. The option for a technological edge that allows the production process such cost reduction translates directly into financial returns. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the International Gas Union Research Conference (Copenhagen, Denmark 9/17-19/2014). Source
