Kennecott Utah Copper Refinery

Kennecott Utah Copper, which produces a quarter of the nation's copper in addition to gold, silver, molybdenum, and sulfuric acid, strives for continual improvement in how it manages, generates, and uses energy. A new CHP system installed in 2010 cleanly supplies more than half of the electricity needs of Kennecott’s refinery, with the waste heat used to produce steam.

National Project Profile Search

CHP already accounts for nearly 10 percent of our nation's energy - numbering over 4,000 local, clean, and efficient systems and counting - and we have the potential for far more. The DOE's CHP Technical Assistance Partnerships have put together Project Profiles on over 100 individual CHP systems across the country, illustrating the diversity, benefits, operating conditions, equipment configurations, and lessons learned from these sites. Use the search tool below to find Project Profiles that match your own site's characteristics.
