Through decades of experience, we have determined that “on average” 50% of the total energies consumed in Industrial Processes are Wasted Energies.
Our strategic partner (MPC) has the expertise to dive down deep into the energies being consumed by various industrial processes in industries such as : steel and aluminum / refineries / automobile parts suppliers / tire manufacturers / chemical companies / distilleries / agricultural processing (ethanol, soybeans, corn, flour) / poultry, beef, and pork processors / and a host of other food manufacturers. By utilizing their proprietary software, AURA, we install energy-related data tag feeds from existing computerized control equipment for a particular process. This energy usage data is only a one-way data transfer to our monitoring software and we never have any interaction with the process controls. Our AURA Software allows us graph and benchmark existing energies being consumed versus new energy use profiles which eventually will show the energies that “should be being used” in the process, allowing us to quantify the energy savings that are occurring. After existing energy profiles are established, we work with the in-plant operators over a period of 10 to 20 weeks to narrow down operating parameters and procedures that can come close to saving 60% of the above 50% wasted energies or 30% of the total energy consumed. Then, if desired for the remaining 40% of the wasted energies or 20% of the total energy consumed, in the future, our client may wish to use the capital investment to capture this portion of the savings.
Many of our case histories are saving over a million dollars in energy costs per process per year with the option of no out-of-pocket costs to our clients.

Often called Co-Generation, Combined Heat & Power (CH&P) Systems can provide all or a portion of electric power (onsite) and process heat (steam or hot water) at the same time. Absorption Cooling Chillers can also be powered from the heat. In other words, CH&P can provide both electric power and process heat from the same fuel……Read More
There are billions of Btu’s per hour of heat energy that are being thrown away through “smokestacks” which translate to millions of dollars of potential natural gas purchased energy savings if much of this heat energy can be captured by way of heat recovery through specialized heat exchangers……Read More
In many larger industries, the air compressor system can amount to 20% to 30% of the total electrical kW load in the plant…..Read More
Examples are fans and pumps. If the speed or rpm’s of a pump or fan can be reduced to less than full load requirements, for every unit of speed reduction, the energy is reduced by the power of 3…..Read More
Ceramic coatings installed on boilers, pipes, tanks, walls, ovens and even metal or membrane roofs used in conjunction with world class rust preventatives will greatly reduce unwanted heat gain or heat loss. Ceramic coatings are available for application on a wide range of surface temperatures which can provide major savings on natural gas & electric energy costs…..Read More
