We want ideas, tips, suggestions and best practices that improve a process.  What we don’t want is proprietary information.  For example, we don’t want the secret ingredient in a formula that gives the product a special property.

The ideas should focus on:

  • Reducing wasted materials
  • Reducing emissions
  • Reducing energy usage
  • Increasing quality
  • Increasing capacity
  • Increasing process efficiency
  • Reducing usage of hazardous materials
  • Reducing water usage
  • Increasing production capacity
  • Reducing downtime¹
  • Troubleshooting¹

¹Process upsets often result in significant amounts of waste generated. Ideas for reducing downtime and troubleshooting are included to help minimize process upsets.
