Abstract

This paper deals with the identification of energy savings by energy audit analysis in rubberwood industries. Energy auditing was conducted at Meenachil Rubberwood Limited, Poonjar, Kerala. Energy audit focuses mainly on the analysis of energy-consuming processes. Several energy conservative proposals and their cost-benefit analysis along with the payback period calculation are done.
