GLRPPR Sector Resource: Seaman Paper Company - Energy Efficiency Measures Save Resources and Money

Title:
Seaman Paper Company - Energy Efficiency Measures Save Resources and Money

Abstract:
Seaman Paper Company is a leader in resource conservation that has significantly reduced energy use and fuel consumption over the last 10 years by making changes to its operations. The company implemented an energy conservation program that reduced electricity use by 2.6 million kilowatt hours (kWh) per year and oil use by nearly 1.7 million gallons per year. In addition, Seaman is installing a backpressure steam turbine/generator, which will enable the cogeneration of electricity and process steam and lead to further energy savings. All of these changes have saved Seaman Paper more than $1.5 million in yearly operating costs.
