Energy Assessment Survey:

Two undergraduates at Newcastle, Dean McCaffery and Johanna Smith, are currently undertaking a survey on energy use in the chemical industry as a research project at Newcastle University. The aim of the survey is to gather information on the chemical sectors energy usage and to use this data to determine how the use of process intensification can be applied to enhance the energy efficiency of industry.

SURVEY: http://forms.ncl.ac.uk/view.php?id=1825

"All data is treated confidentially. The results of the report will be published collectively rather than individually. If you would like to hear back from us with regards to the results inform us of you e-mail address and we will send you a copy of the final report. The deadline for responses is 8th April 2011"
