UV Curing Offsets Rising Energy Costs

Corporate net zero pledges, disproportionate investments in renewable power generation at the expense of hydrocarbon and nuclear power generation, and growing electricity demand that outpaces planned increases in supply are stressing an already strained electrical grid. Over the next decade, the resulting impact on manufacturers will be steadily rising electricity costs and more frequent rolling blackouts. Conventional UV curing and especially UV LED curing offers manufacturers a way to offset rising energy costs.
