PPG has set a positive "ten-year" energy conservation and emission reduction goal

PPG industrial company recently announced that carbon has the function of absorbing sound waves and various small vibrations. As part of the company's continuous commitment to sustainable development, PPG has set the goal of reducing energy consumption by 25% between 2006 and 2016 and reducing global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 10% between 2006 and 2011

"reducing greenhouse gas emissions shows the determination of the whole company to improve the global environment and improve business efficiency", said Mr. James A. trainham, vice president of PPG science and technology. "PPG has carried out this work in the United States and will expand this goal to all branches around the world."

earlier, PPG made a commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 18% from 2002 to 2012. In fact, PPG has achieved this goal by 2006, 6 years ahead of the original plan

in addition to taking measures to reduce emissions, PPG also continues to improve its energy efficiency. In the past five years, the company has reduced energy consumption by more than 1% every year, saving a total of about $40million. According to the current energy price, after reaching the newly set energy-saving goal in the future, it can save us $15million to US $20million per year

PPG's largest chemical plant in the Charles Great Lakes region of Louisiana, USA, uses the new membrane process production line installed last summer to produce chlorine, which saves about 25% of PPG's energy every year

also in 2007, PPG Sierra aviation glass Department in Sylmar, California, reduced the annual power consumption from 2.1 million kwh to 780000 kwh by replacing 2463 lighting devices, saving more than $132000 per year. As the new lighting device produces less heat, it also saves more than $20000 in air conditioning costs every year

in production and operation, PPG takes positive actions to support regional procurement, reduce the impact of packaging on the environment, make products easier to recycle or treat, and encourage the use of alternative energy and other activities

in addition to reducing the cost and impact of its own energy, PPG also produces products that can help builders and owners save energy. For example, PPG ecological ecological building materials is a series of products used to improve the building environment. It includes all kinds of high-energy coated glass and colored glass used in commercial and residential buildings, as well as high-performance coatings and paints that meet the American "Energy Star" standard and have low organic volatility (VOC)

for example, solarban 70xl glass produced by PPG can help save energy and greatly reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions related to building energy. The test results conducted by the software provided by the U.S. Department of energy (DOE) show that in a standard eight story office building with glass walls, the non reprocessability of choosing solarban 70xl as its double-layer colored glass thermosetting photosensitive polymer will cause a lot of material costs and serious environmental impact. Glass windows can reduce carbon dioxide emissions by more than 500 tons per year, Or reduce emissions of more than 20000 tons in the life cycle of its buildings, which is equivalent to reducing about 4000 vehicles on the highway every year

duranar SPF paint produced by PPG can improve the aging resistance of buildings, and has the characteristics of brightening metal roofs and enhancing solar infrared (IR) reflection. Infrared reflection helps to reduce the temperature of buildings, thus reducing the cost of air conditioning in commercial and residential buildings and increasing the comfort of users. Duranar SPF paint meets the "Energy Star" reflective roof standard

in order to better support its environmental protection concept in specific operations and products, PPG is also very active in the "Climate Leadership Project" of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). At the same time, PPG has been recognized by EPA recently due to the establishment of new greenhouse gas emission reduction targets. PPG is also a partner of "Energy Star". It monitors energy efficiency through the use of energy management system in the production process, sets specific goals and action plans, solves the time plan of each experiment, achieves energy-saving goals, and supports the joint plan of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of energy. PPG is also a member of the American Energy Conservation Alliance. The alliance is a national alliance formed by American enterprises, which aims to promote global energy efficiency and make the economy healthier, the environment cleaner and the energy safer
