The StrikoMelter® boasts CO2 emissions that are at least 50% below that of a reverberatory style furnace.
|Waste heat recovery used for preheating in the shaft||No preheating, large footprints require burners to work harder to melt|
|Melting occurs in a separate chamber||Melts in a massive pool|
|Burners can be set to operate at a near stoichiometric range:Target 1.01-1.05||High impingement of burner flame on the surface of the metal|
EPA CO2 Goal 2030:
Achieve a 30% CO2 emission reduction from 2005
WHAT THIS MEANS FOR THE DIE CASTING INDUSTRY:
Your State will be looking for ways to drastically cut CO2 emission levels.
While each reduction plan will vary from State to State the following items could be implemented:
- Added incentives / rebates for energy efficient equipment
- Penalties for high emissions
