Ecogate’s Environmental Impact

Did you know?

Global carbon dioxide emissions are over 30 gigatonnes annually.

Carbon dioxide accounts for over 80% of overall emissions.

Ecogate systems save our clients and the environment more than 64 million kWh per year.  That’s enough to power all the data centers in the US for 7 hours and is equivalent to over 450,000 metric tons of CO2

Since Ecogate’s inception in 1997, we have helped our clients save more than 292 million kWh or 2.1 million metric tons of CO2, These savings alone are enough to power the Mall of America for 1.6 years.

For comparison, Tesla Motors as the largest manufacturer of electric automobiles in the world have saved over 3.5 million metric tons of CO2 since their inception in 2003.

Ecogate and Tesla combined have saved over 5.6 million metric tons of CO2

Ecogate Boosts Capacity at Charles Yorke

UK based furniture manufacturer, Charles Yorke, has benefited from big improvements in their air filtration efficiency and ongoing cost to operate thanks to a turnkey Ecogate solution installed by Dust Controls Systems in the UK.

Charles Yorke is a custom and luxury brand of furniture that has seen substantial growth over the last 20 years. Like many Ecogate customers, their air filtration and handling system had evolved over time and each new piece of equipment had added some strain and pressure to the overall efficiency of the system.

The original extraction system at Charles Yorke employed three main fans which ran continuously, at fixed speed, and provided 145kW of combined power; extracting around 95,000m3 of dust-laden air per hour from three separate ductwork lines.

Growth of the business was requiring additional equipment which was going to trigger an additional extraction fan and possibly a second filter unit. This caused managing director, Mark Denman of Charles Yorke to reach out to DCS for a review and to provide a recommendation.

DCS demonstrated that by installing Ecogate technology, which allows fan speeds to be continuously adjusted and optimised to match extraction demand, it would enable the introduction of additional machines without the need for additional fan power or filtration capacity. As well as postponing expenditure on a new fan and filter unit for the foreseeable future, the Ecogate system installed at Charles Yorke significantly reduces the amount of power consumed by the three main fans. 

The energy survey carried out by Ecogate had conservatively estimated that average fan speed would be reduced by around 20% but, since a relatively small reduction in fan speed achieves a significant reduction in electricity consumption, it was predicted that the resulting energy savings could cover the cost of installation in under four years. 

Commenting on the installation, Charles Yorke’s service and  maintenance supervisor, John White, says: “DCS engineers worked around our factory production schedules and completed the installation over a two-week period, including working through two weekends to facilitate completion of electrical installations that required production machinery to be shut down.”
