ITP's IMPACTS Report Released: Summary of Program Results for CY2008

August 20, 2010

Over the past 30 years, ITP has supported approximately 600 separate research, development, and demonstration (RD&D) projects that have produced more than 200 technologies. In 2008, 104 of these successfully commercialized technologies resulted in industry saving 75 trillion Btu in energy costs. In addition to impressive energy savings, industry reaps even greater benefits from the productivity improvements, reduced resource consumption, decreased emissions, and enhancements to product quality associated with these technological advances. Many ITP-supported projects have significantly expanded basic knowledge about complex industrial processes and have laid the foundation for developing future energy-efficient technologies.ITP tracks energy savings as well as other benefits associated with the successfully commercialized technologies resulting from its research partnerships. Our Impacts report summarizes some of these benefits including energy savings, waste reduction, increased productivity, lowered carbon dioxide and air pollutant emissions, and improved product quality. It also provides an overview of activities of two ITP technical assistance programs: the Industrial Assessment Centers and BestPractices. View the report.
