GASTECH 2011: RTI Shows Ways to Reduce CO2 Emissions and Costs with Effective Insulation (The Netherlands)


Rockwool Technical Insulation demonstrates how efficient insulation reduces energy costs and delivers a smaller carbon footprint at the 25th Gastech Conference and Exhibition in Amsterdam from 21-24 March 2011.

Energy consumption of industrial plants can be reduced significantly by adequate insulation. This delivers two main advantages, as within the framework of the EU Emission Trading Scheme, CO2 reduction equally signifies a reduction in emission costs. In addition, the right insulation keeps temperatures in pipes and storage tanks within strict tolerances, thereby ensuring reliable process efficiency.

As a leading supplier of high quality stone wool solutions for insulating and protecting technical installations in the process industry and marine & offshore, Rockwool Technical Insulation will be at Gastech 2011 in Amsterdam to highlight the key benefits of effective insulation.

Frank Jacobs, Managing Director at Rockwool Technical Insulation, says: “Owners, designers and operators of large, industrial plants are challenged with the task of reducing their energy consumption as much as possible in order to ensure the long term sustainability of their operations“.

The industry needs to move out of its comfort zone. This means redesigning pipes, ducts, boilers and hot process equipment for a low energy, low carbon future. What is required is sustainable design and effective installation of the required insulation. This will ensure that a processing plant is not wasting energy and money, but it in fact is saving operators millions of euros and reducing its impact on the environment.”

In addition, Mr. John Quicken & Frank Jacobs will deliver two presentations as part of the Conference ‘Center of technical excellence’ programme:

* 21 March 2011 – theatre A: 11:00 hrs – 11:30 hrs:

* 23 March 2011 – theatre B: 14:30 hrs – 15:00 hrs:

Frank Jacobs, Managing Director: “Efficient insulation reduces energy cost and delivers smaller carbon footprint”
