Anguil Recognized as Green Professional Company for the Seventh Time

The Wisconsin Sustainable Business Council has once again named Anguil Environmental Systems, Inc. as a Green Professional within its Green Masters Program.

Recognizing sustainable actions by businesses from across the state of Wisconsin, the Green Masters program works to identify companies that have taken actions within nine sustainability pillars. Participants receive recognition for their sustainability accomplishments and use the program to develop ideas to plan future sustainability actions.

For the seventh year in a row, Anguil has been recognized as a Wisconsin Green Masters Program Participant and has been acknowledged as a Green Professional within our industry. The Green Master Program provides a third-party, objective set of criteria for defining sustainability initiatives and legitimizes our work to push sustainability into our supply chain. Anguil is continually evaluated and accepted based on our involvement in key areas of sustainability and improvements in employee engagement, community involvement, and environmental performance.

While the past year has looked a little different as a large portion of our employees have continued to work remotely through the pandemic, Anguil has continued to make strides in our sustainability efforts. A major project completed this fall included the planting of 23 mature native trees, including oak, arbor vitae, maple, london planes, and Ohio buckeye trees, along the Anguil corporate headquarters in Milwaukee. These trees were specifically chosen and planted due to their high carbon sequestration.

On Anguil’s sustainability goals, the executive team believes, “It is important to us that every employee knows what we stand for, our values, and future goals. This takes some work, practice, repetition, and belief. In the end, it revolves around communication from every level of our organization. With this, we believe we can create a more sustainable company, saving time, money, resources, which then opens the doors for opportunity and growth.”

The Celebration

The inauguration was marked with an office gathering and a special celebration. The day of the inauguration, September 3rd, 2021, was also the Ekadashi holiday. Ekadashi is an auspicious day in Hindu culture. It takes place on the eleventh day of the two lunar cycles of the month. Spiritually, Ekadashi symbolizes eleven senses constituting five sense organs, five action organs and one mind. People observe a fast to mark the day by controlling the eleven senses and consuming only permitted foods and refraining from others.

Office Opening Celebration

The celebration featured an extensive spread of Indian food and time for worship.

As a part of our inauguration day celebration, worship was conducted at the office.  A priest was invited to help conduct worship. Key partners of Anguil India, including our fabricators, were invited to the festivities. The gathering included an extensive spread of food and time of fellowship together.

The Office

Examples of Anguil’s System Design and Engineering in Practice

In recent times, the Chinese government has been increasing the restrictive nature of environmental protection regulations. In Shanxi Province, China, a mining company wanted to adopt a new technology to convert ventilation air methane (VAM) into usable energy. Anguil’s system design and engineering expertise was used to recommend the Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO) technology which destroys emissions while using waste heat to generate energy. Anguil’s system design and engineering of the RTO also means that no auxiliary energy is necessary for combustion as long as minimal methane concentrations are maintained.

Anguil’s expertise in system design and engineering allowed us to work with a coil coating facility to generate steam and savings using waste heat. The facility wanted to minimize their exhaust air temperature and operating costs using an RTO.

The customer was able to utilize a large airflow and high exhaust temperature to create energy recovery measures and optimize processes while minimizing operating expenses. As the process needs a lot of steam this would provide a much-needed resource via energy recovery. Anguil installed an air-to-steam waste heat recovery boiler to recover exhaust waste heat from the natural gas-fired thermal oxidizer and created 25 psig of steam. This system design and engineering expertise led to the facility saving $216,770 per year, paying for itself within six months.

 

At Anguil we are always looking for ways to enhance our system design and engineering processes to ensure that we attain exceptional customer satisfaction. To find out more, contact us today.
