Cheese makers: what’s your recipe for energy savings?
- COURSE OUTLINE
- SPEAKER BIO(S)
As a result of this course, you will be able to:
- Identify energy saving opportunities in cheese making facilities.
- Discuss the technological advances to improve efficiency in cheese making facilities.
- Describe the cost saving benefits of cheese making facility improvements.
- Explain the financial benefits of energy efficiency improvements to upper management.
Who should attend?
Production, plant, quality, facility, energy and maintenance managers; plant operators; chief financial officers; facility and chief engineers; owners; presidents; and those with interest in energy efficiency in cheese making facilities.
Join us to evaluate the heavy energy users in cheese making facilities. We’ll explore refrigeration, HVAC, lighting technologies and operational and maintenance improvements that can increase energy savings and productivity. We’ll give special attention to heat recovery options and variable frequency drives. In addition, we’ll discuss ways you can effectively make the case for energy efficiency improvements to upper management. Our experienced instructors will be available to answer technical questions specific to your facility after the formal program concludes.
