Energy Declaration Company Crem International AB Product CQube – Grinder kit This Energy Declaration provides a quantitative description of the energy use of an CQube Coffee Machine, viewed from a life cycle perspective. It shows that most energy is consumed during the use phase. The company Crem International AB Crem International is a world leading manufacturer of coffee and espresso machines for offices, restaurants and the fast food industry on the global market. The head office and main production facility of the brand Coffee Queen is situated in Arvika. Sister companies are found in, Norway, United Kingdom, Spain, Germany and China. In total the group has three production facilities and six sales offices. Crem International AB Box 10, Viksgränd 2 SE-670 40 Åmotfors Sweden Contact person: Peter Larsson phone +46 (0) 570 477 00 Crem International has two familiar and very strong brands - Coffee Queen and Expobar. Crem International is certified according to ISO 9000 and 14000, revised by DNV. The product CQube – Grinder kit CQube is a fully automatic brewer for fresh brewed coffee in a cup or decanter. The machine has an automatic water refill and 4 ingredient containers for coffee, topping and chocolate. Brewing time is 25 seconds per cup (150 ml). The main materials used in the CQube are: Stainless steel, ordinary steel with surface treatment, plastic parts and electronics. Total net weight of the machine is 53 kg. Volume of the water container is 5 litres. (The figure at right includes an extra cabinet with a weight of approximate 25 kg) Life cycle energy use The diagram shows the withdrawal of primary energy resources from nature - oil, coal, wind, etc - during the life cycle of the product. The unit is mega joule, MJ. For example, most of the primary energy consumed during the use phase stems from electricity, which typically demands 8-13 MJ primary energy resource per kWh electricity depending on where it is produced. Note that cutting wastes are sent for materials recycling and the finished product is likely to be recycled at the end-of-life. The energy thus recovered is not credited to the product since it belongs to the next product system. However, since the product contains materials made from a mix of new and recycled materials the benefits of material recycling are accounted for. Use The life cycle Specific data Generic data Clarification of system boundary The life cycle All data are given for one CQube – Grinder kit during 5 years of operation. The investigated life cycle begins with the extraction of resources and production of the materials for the unit. Generic energy data are used for the materials. Specific data are used for how much materials and energy are used in every life cycle phase. The manufacturing includes assembly, surface treatment and warehousing. Electricity, district heating and transportation are the major consumers of energy. Life cycle cost, LCC Assumed data: The machine is used over a period of 5 years. It is placed in an ordinary European office or equivalent place with about 30 persons drinking coffee. Assumed yearly production is 15 000 cups. The Coffee machine is always prepared to serve coffee, and the Ready Mode heating of water (55W) is always active. The Coffee machine needs service and repair 12 times every year, with an average 30 km driving. End of life includes one transport of 20 km Coffee and water are not included in the calculations. Yearly cost = (yearly energy use)*(your own energy price) + service cost The total cost of a Coffee machine is depending on Yearly service cost is depending on your agreement, the purchase price, but also on the usage costs, which as is the purchase price. are energy, water, filter, coffee/chocolate and service. For a comparison between two coffee machines, the amount of coffee/chocolate, filter and water can be assumed to be the same. That is why we here focus on the special costs of this product. A simple calculation gives Improve the product’s energy efficiency during use Life Cycle Cost = purchase price + yearly use cost *product life. To do a more sophisticated calculation, see LCC on www.belok.se or www.energimyndigheten.se The yearly energy use for a normal scenario, as described above, is 705 kWh. The use consists of 2.2 kW in 25 seconds per cup of coffee (150 ml) and 55 W continuously in Ready Mode prepared to deliver hot coffee. When not prepared to deliver hot coffee, called Energy Saving Mode, the power consumption is 22 W. Calculate your own yearly energy use [kWh] by summing up the following four items 0.015*(number of cups/year) (number of hours in Ready Mode per year)*0.055kW (number of hours in Energy Saving Mode)*0.022kW (number of hours in off mode) * 0 = 0 kW *=multiply with. The total number of hours is 8760 (1 year) Use the correct size and model of coffee machine according to your own requirements Use Energy Saving Mode during shorter stops for example over night time Switch the machine off during longer stops as weekends and vacations Use the schedule tool to set the times for the different modes Keep the Coffee machine in prime operating condition by regular service and maintenance Date of publication This declaration, published in February 2010, is valid until February 2013, if supplied data do not change significantly.
