Chemical Plant Finds Potential for Nearly $7.7 Million in Annual Savings
September 8, 2004
As a part of an ongoing effort to reduce energy usage at Rohm and Haas Company's Deer Park, Texas, facility, a pinch analysis was conducted on the major production processes. Several opportunities for energy use reduction were identified in this chemical facility, including modifying the thermal oxidizers in the acrylate monomers plant and balancing the steam system in the acetone cyanohydrin plant. Annual savings resulting from several energy conservation projects could total 2.2 million MMBtu and almost $7.7 million.
