KNAUF on the path towards energy efficiency


GCE Group, Energy audit company is conducting the entire cycle of energy saving (from design to implementation) program for the international company JSC «Knauf-PETROBORD», which is Russia’s largest company for the production of recycled cardboard.

«Knauf PETROBORD» is one of the largest in the Leningrad region with production capacity of 240 thousand tons of packaged and linerboard per year.

Energy inspection at JSC «Knauf PETROBORD» consisted of two main stages. The first stage of the energy audit, which included the survey of overall energy system of the enterprise began in February 2014 and was completed in the summer of 2014 with the submission of a detailed report and a list of the most effective measures. By the end of 2014, JSC «Knauf PETROBORD» began implementing the proposed measures in stages.

GCE experts had suggested the allocation of its own heating circuit as one of the most effective energy saving measures for the first stage for «KNAUF- PETROBORD». Implementation of this action helps to reduce the consumption of electricity and heat in the plants.

The second phase of the energy audit, which included the survey of industrial production lines was started in August 2014 and ended in December 2014. Presentation of Energy conservation program based on the results of the second phase took place in late March 2015. Now the company has started the work on implementing the recommended measures. According to Vasily Tarasovsky, Director of GCE Group of companies, the total energy saving potential at «Knauf-PETROBORD» is 15 thousand tons of fuel, which in monetary terms is equivalent to 95 million rubles per year.

Besides JSC «Knauf-PETROBORD», experts of GCE Group will evaluate the consumption of thermal energy by LLC «Knauf Gips». The objects to be measured were defined in February 2015. Energy auditors from GCE started the measurement work on the site in the end of March.
