NAPA is taking the Emerald Eco-Label EPD tool to the next level with its new Optimizer toolkit. Designed specifically for the asphalt mix production industry, the Optimizer allows companies to analyze and optimize their plant operations, mix designs, and supply chain logistics to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and other environmental impacts. With the addition of plant-specific fuel costs, users can also see the financial impacts of management decisions such as switching fuels and reducing aggregate moisture content, providing an economic lens into the sustainability of operational improvements. Other features include granular analysis of unit processes, the ability to develop multiple production scenarios to understand the benefits of energy efficiency upgrades, and easy comparison of mixes based on different production scenarios. This webinar provides a brief overview of how the Emerald Eco-Label software works and takes a deep dive into the new Optimizer feature.
