Effective Energy Management for Plastics Processors Part 1 comprises seven modules, each with a marked assessment at the end.

The first three modules serve as an introduction to energy management and cover:

  • Energy Management Systems
  • Understanding Energy Use
  • Monitoring and Targeting

The next four modules focus on optimising energy use and are designed to provide useful insights to any type of plastics processor. These modules cover:

  • Motors
  • Compressed Air
  • Chilled and cooling water
  • Drying

Upon successful completion of Part 1, learners are encouraged to select and purchase the modules they require from Part 2, which looks at energy management techniques for specific plastic manufacturing processes.

It is possible to purchase modules from Part 2 without undertaking Part 1 if that is your preference.

Effective Energy Management for Plastics Processors Part 1 takes approximately 2 hours and 20 minutes to complete.

It comprises seven, 20-minute modules, which can be taken at your leisure, picking up from where you left off.

This course is suitable for anyone with an interest in improving the way that energy is managed within their manufacturing facility and reducing overhead costs. It is especially relevant for those who have dedicated energy management or monitoring responsibilities.

  • CPD accredited
  • On-demand audio and instructional slides
  • Full lifetime access
  • Access on mobile
  • Certificate of completion
