Downs Aluminium Casting is a small, family owned and operated non-ferrous foundry located in Toowoomba, Queensland. The company produces aluminium castings for the construction, power and marine industries. In 2013 it installed a 27kW solar PV system. An audit shows other improvements – including by installing a variable speed drive to the dust extraction system - could improve the company’s energy efficiency.
