Carpet Manufacturer 16 Industrial Locations

Value of Project: $100,000

Scope: Energy Assessments

The client operates multiple boiler system(s) at industrial manufacturing plants located throughout the southeastern United States. These facilities are primarily utilized to manufacture yarn, carpet or hardwood flooring.

These Energy Assessment were performed to satisfy the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requirements associated with National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) for Area Sources: Industrial, Commercial, and Institutional Boilers (40 CFR Part 63 Subpart JJJJJ); the primary purpose of the assessments was to identify the “major” energy efficiency opportunities for improving the overall system energy performance and not necessarily addressing individual components or subsystems with equal weight.

Maxis conducted each assessment and recommended multiple Energy Conservation and Retrofit Measures (ECRMs) at each facility; additionally, an engineering opinion of probable costs, typical energy savings percentages, potential annual energy savings (MMBtu and costs), and calculated simple payback periods were provided for each ECRM.

Maxis completed the requested scope of work significantly cheaper than the next closest bidder, and delivered exactly what the client needed. All 16 Energy Assessments were completed over a 6 month period, and the associated reports exceeded requirements and met the deadline established by the EPA.
