Mission

Colorado State's Industrial Assessment Center (CSU IAC) program provides eligible small and medium-sized manufacturers with comprehensive on-site industrial assessments to determine resource and cost savings, and is performed at no cost to the manufacturer.

An industrial assessment involves an on-site visit and in-depth review of a plant site, including its facilities, services, and manufacturing operations. The assessment involves a thorough examination of potential savings from:

  • energy efficiency improvements,
  • waste minimization and pollution prevention, and
  • productivity improvement.

The assessment begins with the CSU IAC team conducting a preliminary survey, followed by a one or two day site visit, taking engineering measurements as a basis for assessment recommendations. In follow-up the team performs a detailed analysis for specific recommendations having estimates of costs, performance, implemetntation costs, and payback times.

Within 60 days, a confidential report that details the analysis, findings, and recommendations of the team is sent to the plant. Six to nine months later a follow-up Implementation Survey is taken by e-mail and/or phone calls to the plant manager to verify which recommendations will be implemented within a 2 year time frame. Previous data show that around 50% of recommendations are successfully implemented.
