MetadataShow full item record
Industrial facilities can be large consumers of energy and have significant environmental aspects or impacts. Sustainable management of energy use and the environment is a growing concern for most industrial companies. Effective energy management can lower operating costs, improve profits, and contribute to a company’s progress in eco-efficiency and environmental responsibility. It is often difficult for a company to hire or designate the required person or team to focus on developing an effective energy management program. Developing such a program in an industrial environment can require abroad spectrum of experience and expertise. This paper provides an overview of a unique partnership between an industrial firm and an engineering firm that provides energy services. Cook Composites and Polymers Co. (CCP) is a world leader in the production and distribution of gel coat, composite polyester resins, coatings resins, dispersions, and emulsions. CCP operates at 12 locations in the United States. Burns & McDonnell (BMcD) is a large, multi-disciplined engineering firm with design-build and energy services capabilities. The firms have worked in the past on process design, environmental, and construction projects.
