Some examples of energy conservation in bottleshops.

Quan, D.F.

The growing fuel shortage in Canada will mean that by the mid 1980's Canadian oil consumption will be twice the available Canadian oil production. To offset the fuel energy shortage, energy conservation is one of the means available and can be readily implemented. It is difficult to conserve energy for the bottleshop. Nevertheless there are opportunities to conserve energy by reclaiming heat and water. Bottle shop areas in which there are potential cost and energy savings are bottlewasher condensate return, winter exhaust air system and waste water streams.
