Our customer Geberit Finland says:
About two thirds of the energy consumption in the production of sanitary ware is accounted for by the firing process, in which cast products are fired to produce finished ceramics. The modernisation of the tunnel kiln with the energy-saving heating system EnerViT by Keramischer OFENBAU will therefore have a significant impact on the energy consumption of the Ekenäs plant and thus on CO2 emissions. The achieved energy savings per year are 2900 MWh. This is equivalent to the annual energy consumption of about 160 single-family homes, i.e. heating 120 m2 single-family homes and providing hot water for the needs of four residents. At the same time, CO2 emissions have been reduced by 650 tonnes per year. The same renovation was carried out on a total of 11 tunnel kilns in seven different Geberit sanitary ware factories.
