The purpose of this presentation is to give an overview of some of the best practices to implement in manufacturing facilities towards improving energy efficiency, improving productivity, and managing waste. The presentation will cover many aspects where these practices can be implemented in HVAC systems, boilers, chillers, compressed air systems, waste heat recovery systems, renewable energy utilization, and in on-site generation among others. The presentation should be of interest to operators, engineers, and managers of manufacturing facilities.
