Friction equals money wasted. With ever increasing energy costs it pay to keep an eye on the parts of your business that help it operate most efficiently. Paper mills use an average of 20% of total energy just to overcome friction . One third of all fuel energy used in passenger cars is used for the same purpose .
Overall countries could save close to 1.5% of GDP by greater attention to the reduction of friction . For New Zealand that is over 3 billion dollars that could be invested in other activities, simply by working to reduce energy costs through low friction design and correct maintenance of existing plant.
