Although expenditures for dryer energy may be only a small fraction of a product’s cost, reducing energy usage could provide significant bottom-line savings.

Besides the return on investment achieved from a properly applied heat recovery system, a number of federal, state, local or utility incentives may be available. They can provide partial funding, grants or other initiatives for energy recovery, greenhouse gas reductions and related projects.
