Europump GHG emissions guide

Published: 15/02/2024 |

This guideline will serve as a tool for pump manufacturers to calculate the Green House Gas (GHG) emissions from pump units in their use phase according to category 11 of the GHG protocol. The guideline presents potential approaches and concepts to consider when e.g. setting Science Based Targets in relation to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) or in general when calculating the GHG emission from pump units in their use phase.

Hydraulic Institute Engineering Data Library

The HI Engineering Data Library is a comprehensive guide for pump users, pump manufacturers and engineers in need of references for pump principles, calculations and unit conversions. It covers topics like Net Positive Suction Head, Pump and System Curves, and frictional losses, utilizing standards developed by HI and other reputable sources. The data library will be updated frequently with new information.

Ecopump Brochure

Europump’s energy commitment is based on academic research, made possible by the Ecopump programme. Ecopump has been Europump’s flagship project since 2004. In 2015 the Ecopump brochure was revamped.

In four clear and to-the-point fact sheets it explains the energy commitment of the European pump industry as well as the underpinning methodology it has designed.

Handbook 'Assessing the Energy Efficiency of Pumps and Pump Units'

Published: 10/04/2015 | Europump, Bernd Stoffel

Europump and Professor (retired) Bernd Stoffel (Darmstadt University of Technology, Germany) have published a handbook ‘Assessing the energy efficiency of pumps and pump units. Background and methodology’.

This handbook represents the decades-long effort of the Europump Joint Working Group on energy-using products. It was officially presented at the Europump General Assembly on 9 May 2015. Upon receiving the first book from the hands of Mr Carlo Banfi, Europump President, Professor Stoffel summarised for the audience that the work consolidates the research that Europump and Darmstadt University of Technology performed to prepare the calculations and methodology that underpin EU Ecodesign regulations. The book also touches upon the important roles of standardisation and the Semi-Analytical Model, which calibrates mathematical calculations with tests.

The book is now available at Elsevier at this link. The price is EUR 90.95 (Europump members receive a discount of 30%).

Optimizing Pumping Systems Guidebook

Twenty-two industry experts have compiled a comprehensive book on optimizing pumping systems. Energy losses in the pumping system as a whole are often greater than energy losses in the pumping unit. Read this book to learn how optimizing both existing and new pumping systems and purchasing based on life cycle costs will lead to increased profitability through a reduction in unnecessary, expensive energy consumption and maintenance costs.

The book is now available from the Europump General Secretariat for 140 euro per copy plus postage. Please order using the following form.
