Date: June 29, 2021 1:00 - 2:30 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
Description: NAPA is taking the Emerald Eco-Label software to the next level with its new Optimizer toolkit. Designed specifically for the asphalt mix production industry, the Optimizer allows companies to analyze and optimize their plant operations, mix designs, and supply chain logistics to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and other environmental impacts. With the addition of plant-specific fuel costs, users can also see the financial impacts of management decisions such as switching fuels and reducing aggregate moisture content, providing an economic lens into the sustainability of operational improvements. Other features include granular analysis of unit processes, the ability to develop multiple production scenarios to understand the benefits of energy efficiency upgrades, and easy comparison of mixes based on different production scenarios.
This webinar will provide a brief overview of how the Emerald Eco-Label software works and take a deep dive into the new Optimizer toolkit.
1. Learn how to use your existing EPD data to analyze the environmental impacts of asphalt plant operational improvements.
2. Learn how to compare and optimize the environmental impacts of your own company’s asphalt mixes.
3. Learn how to evaluate the potential financial benefits of reducing your plant’s environmental impacts
