It goes (nearly) without saying that the United States is a highly industrialized country, and thermal processing plays a large part in those operations. In 2021, the industrial sector accounted for 35 percent of total U.S. end-use energy consumption and 33 percent of total U.S. energy consumption.[1]

Moreover, within the industrial sector, manufacturing accounts for the largest share of annual industrial energy consumption. According to the EIA, manufacturing accounts for 81 percent of industrial energy consumption by the four major types of industries.[1] The other three — mining, at 9 percent, construction, at 6 percent, and agriculture, at 3 percent — lag far behind.

With rising energy costs and marketplace drivers such as the push for decarbonization and the AIM Act, can you afford not to explore ways to improve your operations?

The Process Heating & Cooling Show provides a unique opportunity to learn about industrial heating and cooling technologies that can help you improve energy efficiency, improve temperature stability in your process and save your company money. Learn about new standards and requirements for process heating and process cooling equipment and operations. Gain perspective about the state of industrial decarbonization at our keynote address. Meet with equipment suppliers prepared to help you optimize operations and demonstrate their capabilities.
