Use the Nitrogenous Fertilizer Plant EPI to assess how efficiently a plant uses energy, relative to similar plants in the United States. The 1 - 100 ENERGY STAR score enables a quick understanding of how a plant is performing. Plants receiving a score of 75 or higher are eligible to earn ENERGY STAR certification. For information on how to seek ENERGY STAR certification for nitrogenous fertilizer plants in the U.S., see www.energystar.gov/plants.
To learn more about how EPIs are developed, how to interpret an EPI score, and how to value benchmarking view the Benchmarking Industrial Energy Performance guide.
