A team-based approach relying on ‘people know-how’, combined with sound measuring and monitoring, has enabled a dairy processing company to gain impressive bottom line savings. The 12 month pilot project, which measured energy use in the various stages of milk processing at the Rochester (Victoria) Branch of Murray Goulburn Cooperative, achieved savings of $400,000 a year with a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions of 3,500 tonnes.
