Resource efficiency

Resource efficiency helps to manage resources efficiently throughout their life cycle, from production and consumption to waste management and recycling. Therefore, the transition to a resource-efficient circular economy, focusing on the reuse, improvement, renewal and recycling of existing materials and products, is important for our future competitiveness and sustainable growth. Based on these principles, a resource efficiency measure for companies of the Ministry of the Environment has been created.

Future calls for proposals

The resource productivity of Estonian industrial enterprises is quite low compared to other European countries. In order to improve this indicator, the Ministry of the Environment is implementing the measure „Resource Efficiency of Enterprises“ from the Structural Funds with a total volume of approximately 220 M €, of which 110 M € are European Union funds.
In total, approximately 80 M € was distributed as support to the manufacturing and mining industries, where the support per company was up to 2,000,000 €. Depending on the amount of support, the support rate was 25-50% of the total investment cost. The main eligibility criterion was met if resource efficiency improves by 1% / 5% and cost-effectiveness is> 2. The first prerequisite for receiving support was conducting a resource audit.
To date, the funds for the measure have been exhausted from a specific program. The third or last round is still going on, applications will be accepted and a little more money will come, but there are no high hopes to apply for this round anymore. In 2022, information will be disseminated about the support volume of up to 80 M €. For more information, take part in the training or ask for a free consultation.
The primary objective of a resource audit is to map all industry problem areas that need specific solutions to ensure the proper, optimal and sustainable use of any systems in each area. To this end, a thorough inspection and systems inspection will be carried out.
The second objective of the audit is to identify savings based on investment plans and mapping with suggestions for improvements and potential technical solutions, together with the necessary investments and cost-effectiveness calculations. The end result is a resource audit, which gives the company a clear overview of all areas, with specific investment needs and profitability in each area.

What is the purpose of a resource audit?

Who receives support and in which cases

Support is available to companies of all sizes from the manufacturing and mining sectors. The field is defined according to the EMTAK code – the main activity must be EMTAK B or C. According to the practice, investments in production technology that ensure the best use of resources are supported. Information about the current application round can be found HERE.

Examples of supported solutions:

  • wood industry – planer, veneer line, glulam technology, finger joint, boilers, dryers, saws
  • metal industry – laser, water cutting, bent, CNC benches, hardening, painting, welding
  • others – washing lines, ovens, automatic warehouses, excavation equipment, printing machines, SMD lines

Resource efficiency and its preparation stages

What does DeltaE offer and what are the next steps?

The goal of Engineering Office DeltaE Engineering Office is to offer a complete solution and bring money home to the client cost-effectively! We are responsible for conducting top-level audits that cover resources, energy and real solutions to save energy costs. Writing project applications, the success of which determines the 50% probability of receiving money. And in order for the solutions to be realized, the procurement, which according to statistics is the main reason for financial corrections. If necessary, we also provide project management and owner supervision services.

The usual schedule for the complete solution process

Stage
Time
Data collection 1. – 2 weeks
Conducting a resource audit 4 – 6 weeks
Writing a grant application 2 – 3 weeks
Procurement conducting 2 – 3 weeks
Implementation of solutions < 18 months
Monitoring 3 years
Reporting 3 years

Check out the support measure

DeltaE Engineering Office ensures that the resource audit prepared by us fully complies with the requirements of the Environmental Investment Centre. New rounds of resource efficiency investments will be opened in 2021/2022, the financial volumes of which will be approved on an ongoing basis. As preliminary information, there is talk of nearly € 100,000,000 in support. The amount of support is up to € 200,000 and can even increase to € 1,000,000 depending on the exact conditions of the rounds. According to current information, resource efficiency must improve by at least 1% and cost efficiency by> 2. In essence, any production technology investment qualifies provided that no resource is saved (except time and labour costs).
All sectors of the manufacturing industry are eligible (with some exceptions as described in the Regulation): wood industry, plastics industry, mining industry, chemical industry, textile industry, printing industry, paper industry, building materials industry, furniture industry, mechanical engineering, metal industry, electronics industry, food industry and others.
Check out the resource efficiency support measure on the Environmental Investment Centre (KIK) website.
As of today, those who operate early and start the process before the rounds open will be successful, otherwise there is a great risk of simply losing support subsidies!

Tutvu toetusmeetmega

DeltaE Inseneribüroo tagab, et meie poolt koostatud ressursiaudit vastab täielikult Keskkonnainvesteeringute Keskuse nõuetele. Ressursitõhususe investeeringuteks avatakse 2020 aasta mais/juunis 3. voor, kogumahuga ca 7 000 000 €, kus toetuse suurus on kuni 200 000 € ning ressursitõhusus peab paranema vähemalt 1% ja kuluefektiivsus olema > 2. Sisuliselt kvalifitseerub mistahes tootmistehnoloogiline investeering eeldusel, et mingit ressurssi kokku hoitakse (välja arvatud aeg ja tööjõukulu).
Toetust saavad taotleda kõik töötleva tööstuse sektorid (mõningate erisustega, mis on kirjeldatud määruses): puidutööstus, plastitööstus, mäetööstus, keemiatööstus, tekstiilitööstus, trükitööstus, paberitööstus, ehitusmaterjalide tööstus, mööblitööstus, masinaehitus, metallitööstus, elektroonikatööstus, toiduainetööstus jt.
