KPPC: Partnering to Improve Our Environment, Health & Economics Eastern Kentucky Power Envision Energy Conference October 18, 2006 Cam Metcalf Executive Director
2 The Big Squeeze is on! There is a new global business environment! Core Values Environmental Social – “Interested Parties”Legal & Other Requirements Market Technology Diffusion Water Climate Resources Life Cycle Management Responsibility & Roles Transparency Accountability Corporate Values Leader’s Values Societal Values Globalization E-Commerce Cost Containment Developing Countries Regulations Homeland Security Take Back Laws Self Reporting Materials P2 Technologies Connectivity Resource Scarcity Public Concerns Inefficient use of Resources
4 What is KPPC? KPPC is a non-profit organization established in 1994 through legislative mandate Statewide technical assistance program Based at the University of Louisville’s Speed School of Engineering Funding from companies that generate solid & liquid hazardous waste Hazardous Waste Assessment Fund (20%)
5 Kentucky Pollution Prevention Center Mission The Kentucky Pollution Prevention Center (KPPC) at the University of Louisville is Kentucky’s primary resource for technical information and assistance to improve environmental performance. The Center facilitates and promotes the proactive implementation of management systems and technologies to improve the competitiveness of businesses, industries and other organizations.
6 P2 = Source Reduction P2 means “Source Reduction” & other practices that reduce or eliminate the creation of pollutants through: Increased efficiency in the use of raw materials, energy, water or other resources; or Protection of natural resources by conservation. Resource Management
7 Move Up the Waste Management Hierarchy Disposal Source Reduction/E2 Reuse/Recycling Energy Recovery Treatment Continual Improvement

11 Low Temperature Conversion Coating Manufacture of Reclining Chair Parts Previously used high temperature multi- step phosphated process Successfully trialed single step non- phosphated experimental material at ambient temperatures Reduced H 2 O usage from 93,000 g/yr to 13,000 g/yr or ~ 86% (NO DRAINS) No sludge technology/minimize solid waste Tank life extended from 7 wks. to 18 wks. Substituted water-based paint 225 O F) for solvent-based paint 325 O F) Saved $200,000 in energy (2005 prices) Improved quality performance Processed parts to paint Cross hatch adhesion test
12 Energy Management Program MANAGEMENTTECHNICAL GOALS TARGETS PROJECTS MEASURE & VERIFY MONITOR & MEASURE ENERGY PROFILE ENERGY ASSESSMENT
13 “Low Hanging Fruit!” Utility Bill Analysis Billing/Rate Structure Six Facilities Over $550,000 in Total Annual Savings One Month Average Payback Minimal O&M & Implementation Costs Power Factor Improvements/Demand Reduction Two Facilities Over $20,000 in Total Annual Savings 1.4 Year Average Payback Minimal O&M About $37,000 in Implementation Costs
14 Pump Case Study Wastewater Pump House (3) 200 hp pumps (Using DOE’s PSAT Tool) 23-month payback to complete motor wiring for VFDs (or remove VFDs) $10,000/yr. savings to switch to Demand-Based Rate
15 Reduce Energy Use in Process & Facility Boilers & Steam Systems, HVAC Compressed Air Systems Plug Load Motors & Pumps Lighting Building Envelope E2 Assessment Opportunities
17 E2 = Less GHG Emissions Electricity Reduced/Saved – 2,738,480 kWh Save 375 Metric Tons of Coal Reduce CO 2 by 1,698 Metric Tons One of main GHG (Risen 30% Since Industrial Revolution) Reduce Methane by 14,068 Metric Tons More Potent GHG Than CO 2 Reduce Nitrous Oxide (NO x ) by 24,334 Metric Tons Combines with Sulfur Dioxide (SO 2 ) & Sunlight to Make Smog
21 Results Daylight Harvesting Ballasts Energy Savings (kWh/yr) Energy Cost Savings ($/yr) % Energy Savings Coleridge Taylor- Library 1,074$6952.4% Coleridge Taylor – Stairwell 3,041 (24 hrs.) $ % Whitney Young – Library 1,782$4355.2%
22 Daylight Harvesting Ballasts Benefits: Average of 50% energy savings Demand reduction Better quality light Requires no wiring to central control panel Can integrate with on/off control systems Qualifies for state & federal energy incentives Easy installation Initial low cost premium (~$52 vrs. $34)
VendingMiser Testing Energy Savings 30% to 60% A typical refrigerated vending machine can use over kWh/yr At $0.08/kWh = $210/yr
VendingMiser Testing Temperatures inside the machine ran between 41 and 43˚F without the Vending Miser. The red line indicates that power usage was significantly reduced when traffic was low, nights and weekends.
25 What are Boiler Controls? Add-on controls to space heating boilers (Hot Water/ Steam) to reduce short-cycling & improve efficiency TDI – Boiler Controls TDI – Boiler Controls Boiler Controls work because boilers: Are Sized for the coldest day Short cycle Are Inefficient Do not have hot water resets & other controls
26 Results TDI – Boiler Controls TDI – Boiler Controls Energy Savings W/O Controls (Therms/DD) Energy Savings with Controls (Therms/DD) Energy Savings (Therms/ DD) Energy Cost Savings ($/yr) % Energy Savings Male High School $1,1703% (15%) Seneca High School $5,6706% (10%)
28 Society Economics Environment Triple Bottom Line Sustainable Performance Triple Bottom Line Social well-being Strategic plan for economic goals Guiding Principles for Environmental Management System Pollution Prevention & Energy Efficiency Compliance with all regulations Continual improvement Conservation of natural & cultural resources
29 KY EXCEL is a voluntary program open to any individual, business or organization that wishes to improve & protect Kentucky’s environment in ways that extend beyond Kentucky’s environmental requirements.
