Anpario reduced energy consumption by ninety percent thanks to improvements

November 17th, 2020 – Feed additives manufacturer Anpario plc has invested in a number of improvements to its UK-based manufacturing facility.

The project, which started earlier this year, consists of three phases. A new transfer system between mixer and packaging system in one of the key production lines; installation of a fully automated pallet handling system as well as an innovative spiral round portal that will increase storage capacity in the field.

“The goal of the project is to further increase operational efficiency while reducing the company’s carbon footprint,” said Shane Bailey, director of operations at Anpario. “For example, the new transfer system has reduced energy consumption by up to 90 percent while transferring products from the mixer to the packer, and half the amount of waste generated from the operation of this line within the factory. The cost was 500 thousand GBP.”

“The upgrade not only reduces the environmental impact, but is much more efficient, with the upgraded line running up to eight times faster than the previous system. It is one of a series of measures and improvements that focus on increasing output capacity for our products, including said.

The investment resulted in other benefits for Anpario, including the development of quality assurance objectives and the improvement of the health and safety of the operations team. The project also supports the wishes of the “Green Team”, made up of individuals from each department, who share the company’s goal of minimizing the impact on the environment.

The final phase of the project is planned to be completed by the end of 2020.
