Arla achieves energy savings in water supply systems

Arla Foods has started its journey towards its 2050 target of carbon net zero emissions. To achieve this, Grundfos is supporting Arla Foods in its mission to reduce carbon emissions in its operations by 63% by 2030

Arla Foods has embarked on a journey towards their 2050 target of carbon net zero emissions. The first step, however, is achieving efficiency targets of lowering carbon emissions by 63% at 60 dairies worldwide by 2030. Grundfos has become an essential part of these plans.

Recently, Grundfos supplied and installed new intelligent pumps at the Arla Westbury dairy in the United Kingdom. Based on proven and validated energy measurements, Grundfos helped the site achieve savings to the tune of 481,800kWh of energy and 194 tons of CO2 per year for their ice and chilled water systems, with a return on investment (ROI) of less than two years.

“Our Westbury facility has proven to be a great place to start with the drive towards our 2030 efficiency targets, which is part of implementing our global sustainability agenda. Here, the documented successes leading to substantial reductions in energy use, emissions and costs, and improved operation can be used at new sites,” explained Mia Bredal, director, supply chain sustainability PMO at Arla Foods.
