In my last blog post, I discussed the prolific energy waste in the sugar industry (96%) with their very effective disposal of a valuable renewable resource, bagasse, blown up their stacks.

In my last blog post, I discussed the prolific waste of pool pumps in the residential sector, but what about businesses waste? So I thought I would share example in that sphere.
This week whilst visiting Richards Bay Minerals (RBM) titanium operation in Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa, I had a chance to reflect on the energy waste that is all around us. I asked my Ensight Energy Solutions team of 15 amazing engineers this question:
How much power does a typical swimming pool pump motor use? The answer came back as “about 1,000 watts”.
Then I asked them this question:
How much power, using the laws of physics does a pool require to circulate the water from the pool, through a pool filter and back to the pool?
