If an industrial company wishes to remain prosperous in Louisiana and Texas, it must possess an in-depth understanding of the area. Here are some geographic issues that have the ability to affect EPC in the Gulf Coast. Site and Shoring Work The construction process […]

Although natural gas is widely used for electricity production, it has spawned by-products that serve a number of needs, such as fueling the growing distributed power generation (DG) market, an on-site energy option that is becoming increasingly attractive to businesses. It is seen as a viable alternative to traditional electricity and energy sources. Companies have a need for energy independence, and innovative power systems can revolutionize the industry going forward. Emerging Alternative Fuels The by-products that are so useful to distributed power generation are propane, liquid petroleum gas (LPG) and synthetic or substitute natural gas (SNG), but these fuels are […]

One of the main factors in efficient production in an industrial setting is fine-tuning the process. Company leaders may believe a certain product progression is required, but a closer examination reveals that it ultimately creates a bottleneck and decreases efficiency. Process engineering seeks to alleviate this problem and get production back on track. This article explains the concept and how it can benefit any business. What is Process Engineering? Process engineering is a wide-ranging discipline that encompasses engineering factors in a large variety of industries. It is the examination of the different elements that go into production with the goal […]
