wisconsin foundry industry overview
Wisconsin Foundry Industry Overview
  • 125 foundries
  • 80% - 100 employees or less
  • 21,000 employees
  • Payroll $870 million
  • $3.5 billion in sales
  • Wisconsin 3d Ranked Foundry State
  • Nationally 200 – 250 trillion Btu per year
wcma energy initiatives
WCMA Energy Initiatives
  • Focus on education and facilitation
  • Incorporated energy issues into the standing Environmental Committee
  • Best Practices Handbook & May 2006 Workshop
  • Targeted Site Assessments – future Regional Workshops
  • No goal set to date
foundry industry barriers to energy reduction
Foundry Industry – Barriers to Energy Reduction
  • International competition – priority is survival and market-share. Capital priorities.
  • Demographics  internal resources (many hats for one individual)
  • Environmental requirements – air pollution control
foundry support
Foundry Support
  • Small Foundries will require more individual attention and financial assistance
  • Large Foundries continued financial incentives and tax credits
  • All require education/awareness and research/development

assistance considerations
Assistance Considerations
  • Existing model is effective
  • Do not forget about the basics
  • Do not assume that a 2 year pay back is a “slam dunk”
historical practices
Historical Practices
  • Scrap recycling  life cycle perspective
  • Sand recycling  life cycle perspective
  • Preheat of cupola blast air (1980)
  • Inductor and furnace efficiency
  • Purchasing practices
recent energy reduction activities
Recent Energy Reduction Activities
  • Compressor system modifications and control
  • Cupola heat recovery for space heat  50,000 dekatherm annual savings
  • Lighting Projects  $325K invested to date
  • Premium efficiency motor project
future reduction activities
Future Reduction Activities
  • HVAC smart building controls
  • Plant 1 Cupola Heat Recovery
  • Compressor System Retrofits
  • Lighting Retrofits
  • Waste Heat to Electricity  8 MW (long term 6 –8 year payback)
