Co-polymer plant achieves over $500,000 in no-cost savings and a culture change in plant operators

This Gulf Coast plant of an international chemical company aggressively wanted to pursue process and energy improvements and enlisted 5DN to help them achieve these goals using the SIO approach. The SIO team created millions of dollars in solutions, but one of the best results was a culture change in the operations team. Since the 5DN methodology engages the "shop floor" so effectively, our clients later reported the immediate benefit of operators becoming champions for energy savings which created a sustainable way of running the plant. This made the $500,000 in "no cost" behavioral savings stick and served as a crucible for continuous improvement.
