Process optimisation

Process optimisation reduces resource consumption by optimising existing processes. Examples of improvements that are easily achievable in the dairy industry, as identified by Prasad et al. (2004), include:

• Optimising start-up/shut-down procedures and changeovers by fine tuning timers and accurately detecting product interfaces to reduce product waste; e.g. National Foods, Australia are now saving 60 000 L milk/year by such optimisation.

• Optimisation of production scheduling so that process capacity matches filling capacity.

• Minimise waste during separator desludging by optimising bowl opening frequency; e.g. Murray Goulburn, an Australian co-operative, are now saving AUS$40 000/year with payback of 1 year.
