Reaching Sustainability Goals: Insulation for Industrial Facilities

With relatively minor investments in a properly designed and maintained insulation system on process piping and equipment within power plants, refineries, chemical plants, and other industrial manufacturing facilities, owners can achieve significant reductions in fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. Arm yourself with the data to show not only that the payback period is almost always less than 1 year and often less than 6 months but also that insulation belongs in discussions about transitioning to green energy sources, such as solar and wind. When it comes to achieving energy and emission reduction goals, insulation is like fruit that is ripe for picking!
