Total’s Efficiency Team helps consumers and the environment

Total Bayport Hydro De-Aromatization plant is a "specialties refinery" of Total in the USA.  The plant assembled an efficiency team in 2005 to create better, more affordable energy, and shrink their environmental footprint. Today, more than 40 major efficiency programs have been put in place, and that number continues to grow. With 40% savings achieved, the results are benefitting everyone.

The Chemistry of Cleaner Air

The Bayport plant was able to reduce nitrogen gas purges at flares across the plant. This had multiple benefits; less natural gas was required to meet heating value regulations, which meant less greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. And less nitrogen meant a further reduction in both GHG and nitrous oxides (NOx). All of which meant cleaner air across the community.

Total Lowers Costs, Raises Awareness

Being innovative, dedicated, and challenging the status quo helped Total Bayport reduce their own use of energy significantly. As one of the original Efficiency Team members put it, “We all have a responsibility to be wise about our use of natural resources, and our impact on the environment.” Today, everyone at Total Bayport lives by these words.
