Technological improvements and compliance with codes of conduct are the cornerstones of energy saving. For many years, Fonderie Palmieri has been making significant investments in new production facilities. The centre of every investment is a careful analysis of the energy impact. Only energy-efficient product processes can enable a company to have a future.

For this reason, only motors with inverters and energy recovery drives are installed in new installations or modernizations of existing plants. The internal lighting will be completely converted to LED technology. The particularly energy-intensive processes such as melting and subsequent heat treatment are carefully checked for potential energy recovery possibilities.
Fonderie Palmieri has recently signed an agreement with ENERGY TEAM, a leading company in the field of energy management. The contract includes the installation of sensors for the recording and continuous control of energy consumption in the individual production areas and a benchmark analysis of all processes. 

The goal of these activities is the introduction of a systematic energy management according to the standard ISO 50001:2018. The energy management system should show up where if and there are energy saving potentials. The consistent use of such potentials powers operating costs and increases competitiveness. Energy management should have an influence on organisational and technical processes and behaviour. Thus it reduces the overall energy consumption of the company and the consumption of raw materials and additives from an economic point of view and continuously improves energy efficiency in the company.

The energy policy of Fonderie Palmieri is fully in line with the principles of the standard, and therefore the implementation of the system will be completed within the next 12 months. The date of ISO 50001:2018 certification is scheduled for mid 2020.
