Chemifloc SEAI Energy Awards 2021 Finalist

Chemifloc are delighted to have been shortlisted as a successful finalist for the annual SEAI Energy Awards 2021 in the Small & Medium Business – Exemplary Energy Efficiency Category for our  Caustic Cooling project in Foynes, Co. Limerick. 

This project is a great example of how an energy audit can give you an opportunity to look at the energy usage across different processes. Chemifloc’s caustic cooling project provided the opportunity to spot clever ways of saving energy. After completing an energy audit, the project looked at the good principles of chemistry and engineering to combine two processes so that they complimented each other. As a result, instead of requiring energy input, both processes became energy neutral.  The project was supported by the SEAI EXEED scheme. Other energy projects are also scheduled for Chemifloc Shannon and Foynes including a major project with >€1M capital spend to replace an existing raw material currently used with one with a much lower carbon footprint.  

Final judging will now take place and winners will be announced in October
