DENVER - Sept. 11, 2016 - PRLog -- Most managers, plant and facility professionals, and sustainability executives are very familiar with Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) put in place for corporate sustainability. They measure how effectively a company is meeting a number of sustainable goals, one of the most important of which is reducing their energy use.

Reducing energy use, reducing water use, and improving employee safety also improve the bottom line for companies. Many managers receive bonuses for meeting them. Reducing operational impact on the planet is good for the earth, for a company, and for its employees. It's a "win-win" all around.

Because our patented nanoscience-based coatings do so many things to increase sustainability, we go through our clients' KPIs and tell them exactly where our coatings can help save them money, reduce energy costs, increase employee safety, reduce waste, and provide other sustainable benefits. We pride ourselves on the fact that our solutions can help them meet energy saving and safety goals almost immediately.

Here is a snapshot of two main goals and how Synavax™ coatings can help companies meet them.

1. Energy Savings – Many companies have at the forefront of their sustainable goals, saving energy across their operations. They will typically use a baseline of 5-10 years prior and have a goal to decrease energy use by a certain year by anywhere between 10% to 25% on average. Saving energy can fall into multiple categories, such as savings on manufacturing energy use and savings on heating and cooling of buildings.

Our coatings not only provide effective thermal insulation over industrial equipment, such as boilers, steam pipes, and tanks, to lower process energy costs, but also over building envelope elements, such as walls, roofs, and skylights, to reduce heating and cooling costs. Our coatings are a "one stop option" for just about any type of insulation need. You can find multiple examples here:

2. Reduce Carbon/GHG Emissions – This goal is closely related to energy use, because reducing energy use naturally reduces the carbon emissions relating to energy usage. It can also relate to using cleaner forms of energy and incorporating energy regeneration into factory operations.

In addition to insulating to reduce overall energy use, our coatings have been used in power regeneration applications. The City of San Jose (, California coated large concrete waste water digester tanks with our insulation coating to help recapture more of the heat being generated and routed to another area for reuse. They were able to save an estimated 48,899 therms by capturing more heat for reuse, thus lowering their costs and GHG emissions even more.
