Lower Costs Through Better Efficiency and Lower Emissions


In the last few years, the cost of energy has increased many fold. This has made the measurement and management of energy a key area of activity in the industry. In the modern competitive world, tangible costs must be reduced and efficiency optimized to be competitive. It is amazing how we can achieve both goals of lower costs through better efficiency and lower emissions through better energy management. This paper comments on possible ways to manage energy in a processing plant, concentrating on better energy measurement and increasing efficiency through benchmarking and information management.
