Decarbonizing Industry | Quality Digest

“Petroleum, chemical, iron and steel, cement, and food and beverage manufacturers contribute more than 50% of CO2 emissions in the U.S. industrial sector and 15% of U.S. economy-wide total emissions,” ORNL’s Thomas Wenning says. “This bootcamp gives plant managers a better understanding of the resources available and approaches for decarbonizing these facilities.”

Our PROMISE: Quality Digest only displays static ads that never overlay or cover up content. They never get in your way. They are there for you to read, or not.

The bootcamp will offer training on two ORNL-developed free software tools for identifying and quantifying energy savings—MEASUR and VERIFI—and demonstrate diagnostic tools, including infrared cameras, leak detectors, and combustion analyzers.

However, someone has to pay for this content. And that’s where advertising comes in. Most people consider ads a nuisance, but they do serve a useful function besides allowing media companies to stay afloat. They keep you aware of new products and services relevant to your industry. All ads in Quality Digest apply directly to products and services that most of our readers need. You won’t see automobile or health supplement ads.
