And the most energy efficient company is...

Ljubljanske mlekarne, with its project of recovering waste heat generated by sterilizers and preparing cooling water. Ljubljanske mlekarne were declared the winner at the award ceremony for energy efficiency.

As part of this year's Energy Manager Days, the competition for the most energy efficient project was organized for the fourteenth time. Awards were also presented for low-energy facility and promotional projects in the field of energy efficiency.

Ljubljanske mlekarne entered the competition with the project of recovering waste heat generated by sterilizers and preparing cooling water, which was implemented as part of the renovation of the plant for the production of durable products, where we produce, among other things, our Alpine milk. A commission of experts placed us among three finalists and we were declared winners at last night's award ceremony as part of the Energy Manager Days.

SHORT DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECT

Reuse of waste heat

The system for the preparation of cooling water and use of waste heat generated by sterilizers was designed and installed in 2011. The system was implemented due to the necessity of recovering waste heat produced by the sterilizer and is one of the two main production elements for the processing of durable products.

The system's task is to prepare cooling water for cooling down the sterilizer, to accumulate the sterilizer's waste heat and using this heat to prepare hot process water used in production processes and cleaning of technology facilities. The system's task is also to prepare heating water used for heating the premises during winter.

Great energy, environmental and economic savings

The introduction of the described technology clearly indicates the sustainable orientation of Ljubljanske mlekarne: with the introduction of the system we managed to considerably reduce the consumption of electric energy and steam. The savings brought by the project are so great that the dairy recovered its investment in the project in just one year.

PROFESSIONALISM AND WINNING SPIRIT OF OUR EMPLOYEES

By receiving the award, we, the employees of Ljubljanske mlekarne, prove that we are part of a modern and advanced company, with excellent experts from various fields, and that we are oriented toward a sustainable future.

We would like to congratulate all those who participated in the project and wish an abundance of winning spirit and efficient projects also in the future.
