With a goal of improving its energy intensity by 25 percent by 2015, Dow Chemical Company (www.dow.com) has enlisted several of its plants to receive energy assessments from Save Energy Now. In Hahnville, LA, six Dow employees worked with a DOE Energy Expert to identify opportunities to make the plant’s steam systems more efficient. By implementing the recommendations from the assessment, the plant saved 272,000 MMBtu and $1.9 million, according to the Department of Energy’s Industrial Technologies Program (www.eere.energy.gov).
