Clemson University Energy Audit at RMF

RMF hosted a group of faculty and students from the Clemson University Industrial Assessment Center in July 2017.  The focus of this audit was to evaluate RMF’s electricity, natural gas, and water usage.  This program offers engineering students the opportunity to study a real-world manufacturing environment and offers potential methods for RMF to be more energy efficient.  The group has identified 7 areas for improvement and is working on financial justification for their ideas, which will be included in their final report.  A special thanks to Justin Litchko and Donnie Walker for their support and excellent technical knowledge during the audit.   Clemson Study R Hall 2017
