Co-Generation Increases Your Cash Flow and Profits
Large established manufacturing companies are under tremendous pressure from several fronts to reduce their environmental impact (carbon footprint) while at the same time trying to improve or maintain profitability. Pressure to reduce carbon emissions comes from customers, environmental groups, and government agencies.
The majority of manufacturing companies that require heat as part of their process are literally burning up millions of dollars that are going “up in smoke” by not capturing waste heat to generate electricity. These same companies are surprised to learn that they can save between 8-20% on energy cost and reduce their carbon footprint by millions of tons per year by installing co-generation technology.
With our program, they can do that with little to no capital investment.
One of the unique processes we have created is called N2 Design. This is a process parameter system that allows us to quickly measure the amount of waste heat from a manufacturing plant and accurately size a co-generation system that can produce electricity from that waste heat. This process design takes into account the need for complete redundancy for our clients in terms of electricity and heat (in most cases steam) but balances redundancy with creating a project that has an excellent return on investment. Our design alleviates the concern that customers have with questions like what if the co-generating turbine stops working, where will the production steam I need come from. Several of our competitors do not worry about redundancy and their customers have been left with manufacturing down time when the co-generating system is shut down for maintenance. With our background in manufacturing and up time requirements we are sensitive to keeping the plant in production.
