U.S. Manufacturing Energy Use and GHG Emissions Analysis

How effectively is energy used in U.S. manufacturing? How much greenhouse gas (GHG) is emitted from combustion in manufacturing operations? The U.S. Manufacturing Energy Use and Greenhouse Gas Emissions AnalysisPDF from the Oak Ridge National Laboratory traces energy from supply (fuel, electricity, and steam) to major end-use applications in U.S. manufacturing. The report ranks the energy use, energy losses, and energy-related greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of 15 sectors. These sectors collectively account for 94% of all energy use in manufacturing. In addition, in-depth profiles of energy flows are available for U.S. manufacturing as a whole and for the five largest energy-consuming sectors: Chemicals Forest products Petroleum refining Food and beverages Iron and steel
