Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

BEE of India awarded the Energy Conservation Award to pulp and paper mills in each industry sector and also their fields by the Ministry of Power on National Energy Conservation Day. Seshasayee Paper and Boards Limited, Pallipalayam, India, received the prize for their outstanding energy savings achieved during 2013-14. The second award was given by IPMA who selected the Seshasayee Paper Mill in Erode, India as the winner of the IPMA Energy Conservation Award 2013-14.

Dr. Raman, of Seshasayee Paper and Boards credited the mill’s new nano-engineered thermal insulation for effective heat recovery as well as corrosion protection after receiving his award, "Nansulate is the answer for corrosion mitigation alongside low end heat recovery through effective insulation in industries in general and paper and pulp mills in particular, thereby targeting the 3Es:, energy conservation, environmental management and emission reduction, all in one."

"I have enjoyed working with Dr. Raman over the years on a variety of energy and cost saving initiatives at his company utilizing our patented thermal insulation and corrosion prevention coatings," stated Francesca Crolley, VP of business development for Industrial Nanotech. "He and his company, headed by the leadership of Chairman Gopalaratnam, are always innovating and looking for ways to do things better to reduce energy consumption and maintenance costs, and are always more than happy to share the benefits of our coatings with others in their industry. Industrial Nanotech is honored to work with industrial manufacturers like Seshasayee Paper, and we look forward to helping others make a positive impact on the planet and their bottom line by lowering their energy costs, reducing related carbon emissions, and increasing asset life."

With the success the nanotechnology firm has achieved with pulp and paper manufacturers, both in the U.S. and internationally to reduce energy consumption, protect assets from corrosion and corrosion under insulation (CUI), and lower carbon emissions, the company plans to continue their efforts to make paper manufacturers aware of the solutions for energy efficiency, sustainability, and asset protection afforded by their patented products. More information about Industrial Nanotech’s industrial cost saving solutions and specific case studies are available online.
