Unformatted text preview: eplenish the water table. Research is focused
on the possible properties of the material to
withhold harmful substances (e.g. petroleum
byproducts) in its mass, while allowing clearer
water to pass through and its potential for in
creased durability and life cycle.
The outcomes of these projects will allow both
an extension of the range of applications to in
dustrial sites and further improvements in re
spect to TITAN’s environmental footprint. Evaluating energy performance and reducing consumption requires good information on how, when, and where energy
is being used. Collecting and tracking this
information is necessary for establishing
baselines and managing energy use. Understanding current and past energy use is
how TITAN Roanoke Cement, US identifies
opportunities to improve energy performance and gain financial benefits.
In 2009 TITAN Roanoke Cement installed a
real time energy monitoring system using
a network of digital meters to monitor and
track energy consumption and energy intensity for each process area of the plant.
All metering data is available in a central
database for plant management to review,
plant energy team analyses energy trends
during operation and shut downs to determine where and how...
