MetadataShow full item record
This report is a review of the author's year of experience as an intern with The Andersons in Maumee, Ohio...The author's prime responsibility was in the area of energy management for the company. An energy audit of The Andersons' Maumee complex was performed to determine amounts of energy used and how it was used. A recommendations report for a company-wide energy management program was presented to management. The intent of this recommendations report was to develop a company energy policy, determine required manpower and structure for a proposed energy department within the company, and develop a company-wide energy conservation program. In addition, coordination and management of several energy conservation projects was undertaken. Engineering projects other than energy management were performed. These involved work associated with a survey of waste materials to insure compliance with federal regulations on hazardous wastes; a study of the grain aeration system at the Champaign elevator to evaluate a possible redesign; and engineering analyses of country elevators being evaluated for lease under the company's Linkage Program. These projects required a close working relationship with engineering, environmenetal protection, maintenance, purchasing and accounting departments, as well as with operations personnel. Thus, this internship position at The Andersons provided exposure to a various segments of the company. This broad exposure to a variety of engineering problem areas provided a valuable educational experience.
