Energy Efficiency Training at Louisville

NPPR is pleased to announce that the Department of Energy is making
available a comprehensive "energy efficiency"  training,  prior to the
start of NPPR's spring conference in Louisville, Kentucky, on April 8,
2002.   DOE is also planning to provide an hour session on the first day of
NPPR's spring conference to go over all of the tools available from DOE.  

The price has been substantially reduced (to only $35 for the day) so that
pollution prevention practitioners can gain use of this P2 Energy
Efficiency Tool.  Virtually all manufacturers use heating in their
production process, and you can integrate this valuable tool into existing
P2 efforts. Sign up today for this productive pre-conference training day.

You can go online and register for the spring conference at
www.p2.org/events.  If you are interested in this special E2 training
please e-mail your intentions to attend the workshop by e-mailing Renuka at
 staff@p2.org,   Follow-up information will be sent directly to you. Don't
forget-- the early registration deadline for the Louisville conference is
tomorrow, January 7th!  Robert Kennedy Jr. is among the featured speakers
for the meeting. 

Our thanks to the hard working NPPR energy efficiency discussion group who
helped bring this training to the NPPR conference. 

More specifics on the training follows:

Best Practices: Process Heating Training
9:00 a.m. -5 p.m. 
Tuesday, April 8, 2002
> Process heating is vital to nearly all manufacturing processes, supplying
heat to produce materials and products. Heating processes consume about 5.2
quadrillion Btus of energy annually, which accounts for nearly 17 percent
of all industrial energy use. Advanced technologies and operating practices
offer significant savings opportunities in process heating, with the
potential to reduce energy consumption an additional 5 to 25 percent in the
next decade. 
> This one-day training course includes an introduction to process heating
and process heating equipment such as furnaces, dryers, ovens, heaters,
kilns etc. used by the industry. The course includes information on heating
methods, heat transfer in furnaces, waste heat recovery, commonly used
process heating controls and emissions from heating processes. The course
highlights the use of the Process Heating Assessment and Survey Tool
(PHAST), that can be used to survey furnaces and heaters, identify major
energy using equipment, prioritize improvement opportunities, and assess
available methods that can be used to improve thermal efficiency in an
industrial plant. 
> What will you learn?
> Available methods to reduce fuel use and costs, improve energy
efficiency, and reduce emissions from furnaces; Practical tips on the plant
energy efficiency improvement through use of operations and maintenance
(O&M) procedures; Introduction to a tool (PHAST) that can be used to survey
process heating equipment and to identify major energy consuming equipment;
How to use the PHAST tool to assess energy consumption in furnaces and to
reduce energy use for a furnace and its components; This tool includes
information on specific areas of possible improvements, available methods
to reduce energy consumption, magnitude of potential improvements and
available resources for help. The tool is designed to integrate into
existing operations.
