Tap into the benefits of a MnTAP intern

 

Want to tap into an additional resource for your business? Need an extra set of eyes to tackle your waste or pollution prevention projects?

If so, look no further than the Minnesota Technical Assistance Program (MnTAP) intern program.

 

MnTAP, part of the University of Minnesota’s School of Public Health, offers services such as site visits, team facilitation and interns for industries

 interested in reducing waste, conserving water or improving energy efficiency.

 

Business owners and managers know there are lots of ways their company could reduce waste and conserve energy that would lead to cost savings.

Yet they lack the extra staff time or resources to devote to investigating and solving the problem. MnTAP interns help to fill in this gap. Students

are able to work full-time at the facility identifying and researching solutions.

 

Companies that participated in the 2013 MnTAP intern program now have the potential to realize reductions of over 522,570 pounds of waste, 2.2

million kWh and 317,327 therms of energy and could conserve over 54 million gallons of water. These potential reductions could save participating

companies a total of $872,200 annually. Read about the 2013 MnTAP intern projects in Solutions.

 

Schwing America in White Bear Lake is a prime example of a successful intern project.      

Schwing hosted an intern in 2013 to lead a project focused on researching opportunities

 to increase efficiency using lean manufacturing principles. Through lean manufacturing

analysis, the intern identified several opportunities to improve the manufacturing process

and conserve energy including:

 

       Quantifying and recommending loading patterns between paint booths to minimize

           unnecessary energy usage. This could result in thousands of dollars per year of electrical

            and gas savings

 

            Recommending a regular testing method for air leaks that will save 21,000 kWh and over

            $2,000 per year.

 

             Constructing a spaghetti diagram of forklift travel resulting in a staging area system that

            reduces forklift travel and saves 390 gallons of propane fuel and nearly $1,000 per year.

 

Currently, MnTAP is looking for proposals from businesses interested in waste reduction and energy conservation for the MnTAP 2014 intern program.

Proposed projects will be evaluated for impact potential, project scope, and company interest and commitment. Successful proposals will focus on

projects that identify specific opportunities to reduce waste or increase energy efficiency within a company’s operations.

 

Project proposals are due Feb. 1, 2014. Learn more and apply online today! If you know of a Minnesota company that could benefit from the knowledge

and resourcefulness of a MnTAP intern, please encourage them to consider applying for an intern in 2014.
