Reducing harmful emissions and using resources more efficiently is not only good for the environment, it is also good for business competitiveness and profitability.
The industrial sector accounts for about one third of the total energy consumed and one-third of fossil fuel related greenhouse gas emissions in the United States. In fact, it is estimated that between 20 to 50% of industrial energy input is lost as waste heat in the form of hot exhaust gases, cooling water, and heat lost from hot equipment surfaces and heated products.
Improving industrial energy efficiency provides an attractive opportunity not only for significantly reducing GHG emissions, but also significant cost savings for manufacturers, processors, and pretty well any organization with a boiler plant and steam operations. What makes this opportunity even more attractive is that instead of investing heavily into research and development in search of new solutions, technologies that can benefit businesses and fight the climate change battle are available today. In fact, a Canadian company has a few of these proven solutions and they have already made a big impact in reducing carbon emissions.
Thermal Energy International Inc. is an established global supplier of proprietary and proven energy efficiency and emission reduction solutions to the industrial and institutional sectors. The company saves its customers money and improves their bottom lines by reducing their fuel use and cutting their carbon emissions. Thermal Energy is a Canadian publicly-traded clean-technology company with shares listed on the TSX Venture Exchange (TSX-V) under the symbol TMG.
Thermal Energy has two main products - FLU-ACE Heat Recovery Systems and GEM Steam Traps. These products have proven applications across many industry sectors, from food and beverage, pulp and paper, chemicals and petrochemicals, to hospitals, pharmaceuticals, tire manufacturing, laundries, and more. Customers include Fortune 500 and many other multinational companies.
Combining Thermal Energy’s two proven technologies can recover from 20 to 30% of the energy wasted by many industrial and institutional operations, and reduce greenhouse emissions by comparable amounts. Again, these technologies are available today. There is no need to redesign and implement an entirely new system. Take a look at the Tweet below to see the impressive impact this company and its proven solutions have made to date.
