The title plan (MPI, abbreviated in Dutch) of the Dutch natural gas trading and transporting industry concerns the support and stimulation of energy efficiency of industrial processes to save natural gas. MPI started in 1991 with 80 projects, which number has grown to 306 in the beginning of 1997. October 1, 1996, 230 projects were completed. Much of the current MPI-projects are follow-up projects. Some projects in different industrial sectors (chemistry, paper and board, dairy products, and margarine, fats and oils) are briefly outlined.
