Chemical Processing today announced that it will be hosting a free Webinar on April 22, 2010, at 2 p.m. ET to discuss energy effiency trends and their impact on chemical processing facilities. Government mandates on energy efficiency and their impact for chemicals and refineries, and energy consumption monitoring also to be discussed.
With electrical and thermal energy representing substantial operational costs, being able to identify areas to boost energy efficiency can result in bottom line savings for chemical and refining plants. "Energy efficiency is a hot topic," states Traci Purdum, Senior Editor at ChemicalProcessing.com and the Webinar’s moderator. "Not only is the chemicals industry keenly aware of the need to adhere to government regulations, it is also very interested in what saving energy means to the cost of production – especially as we continue to recover from the recent economic recession."
The Webinar features Gary Faagau, Senior Consultant, ICubed Energy Consulting Inc. A former corporate energy and best practice director for two Fortune 500 refining companies, Faagau currently serves on the project team for the ASME Energy Assessment for Process Heater Systems committee.
