Cap & Trade Analysis Scheduled in NADCA Workshop

WHEELING, IL-The North American Die Casting Association (NADCA) is sponsoring an energy efficiency workshop: Effects of Cap & Trade on Die Casting on August 5, 2009, at Ryobi Die Casting in Shelbyville, IN.

The event includes eight presentations as well as a tour of Ryobi Die Casting.

The keynote presentation, by NADCA’s project engineer Alex Monroe, is an overview of the effects of cap and trade, greenhouse gas and carbon footprints on die casting.

The presentation will discuss the cap and trade bill-The American Clean Energy & Security Act of 2009-which was recently passed in the House of Representatives. The bill aims at limiting the total greenhouse gas emissions throughout the United States to 42% below 2005 levels by 2020.

As a result, energy costs will dramatically increase for all die casters in the coming years. Energy efficiency programs in plants will be critical to adapt to this tough legislation. This presentation will give an overview of this cap and trade bill, identify the greenhouse gases emitted by die casters and address how to calculate one’s carbon footprint in order to reduce energy costs.
