Free Workshop: The Wonders of Steam @ Dow Chemical Company
Sep 28 @ 8:30 am – 3:00 pm

Energy savings through steam efficiency.

Due to its high heat content and transportability, steam production is a major force in manufacturing and industrial processes. It could be said that steam is a wonderful thing. Efficient generation and use of steam can provide a significant cost savings opportunity and minimizes its impact on a facility’s environmental footprint.

Registration page for the workshop.To assist steam users in Kentucky, the Division of Compliance Assistance (DCA) and the Kentucky Pollution Prevention Center (KPPC) have partnered to provide The Wonders of Steam workshop to be held on September 28, 2017 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Dow Chemical Company faciilty in Louisville, Kentucky. The theme of the workshop is energy savings through steam efficiency and is free to attend.

Cheryle Eakle, Senior Sustainability Engineer at KPPC, shares that steam is often taken for granted. However, when leaks and malfunctioning traps occur it can add up to significant costs and cause operational problems.

Steam experts speaking at this workshop will show how maintaining a steam system can save money. Topics to be covered will address the properties of steam, achieving steam efficiency, selection and operation of steam traps, insulating to reduce energy loss and an overview of boiler efficiency and regulations. A workshop agenda is available on the DCA website.

The target audience for this workshop includes facility managers and owners, environmental health and safety professionals, and representatives of manufacturing and industrial facilities.

Reducing steam energy waste lowers operating costs which leads to improved business performance and more sustainable operations.

If your facility uses steam energy, make plans to attend this free workshop by registering online at https://dca.ticketleap.com/wonders-of-steam/dates/Sep-28-2017_at_0800AM
