Fujifilm Opens State-of-the-Art CTP Plate Production Facility
The new production line is equipped with Fujifilm’s Co-generative Thermal Oxidizer (CTO) system, which is designed to capture waste heat and return it to the system for additional use. Since waste heat from the exhaust gas combustion unit can be efficiently re-introduced to generate energy required by the new production line, (including electricity, steam, cold and hot water) the system improves the rate of waste heat efficiency by 11 percent and reduces the annual CO2 emission by approx. 5,500 tons compared to conventionally equipped production lines.
In addition, the Tilburg plant uses five wind turbines with the capacity of producing up to 2 megawatts of power. The electricity generated by the wind turbines currently accounts for around 20 percent of the power used at the factory, in an active effort to reduce the facility’s environmental load.
The Tilburg plate manufacturing plant is Fujifilm’s fourth major production facility on three continents, including Japan, China and the United States.
