Abstract : Department of Defense (DOD) industrial facilities consume large amounts of energy and emit significant quantities of air pollutants. Recent Executive Orders issued by the President set goals for increased energy efficiency and reduced emissions that must be met by these industrial facilities. To help address these needs, the U.S. Army Construction Engineering Research Laboratories (USACERL) has initiated programs to: (1) develop a Process Energy and Pollution Reduction (PEPR) screening tool that can provide energy and emissions evaluations, and (2) identify conservation opportunities for reduced energy consumption and toxic air emissions, via energy efficiency and operational improvements. An evaluation of the industrial operations at Army Materiel Command (AMC) installations identified five energy-intensive industrial processes for further analysis. Energy conservation and emission reduction opportunities were identified. Energy requirements and emissions were quantified for the alternate technologies and used to estimate total energy usage and emissions for the revised processes. As an aid for rapidly screening these energy conservation opportunities (ECOs) throughout the DOD industrial facilities, a general-purpose PEPR software tool was developed to link the energy/emissions evaluation routines for the selected processes with the ECOs.
