Biotechnology is technology based on biology – biotechnology harnesses cellular and biomolecular processes to develop technologies and products that help improve our lives and the health of our planet. We have used the biological processes of microorganisms for more than 6,000 years to make useful food products, such as bread and cheese, and to preserve dairy products.
While not as energy-intensive as some other industries, certain aspects of pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies’ operations require significant energy use.
The most obvious benefit of energy management is cost reduction. ENMAT Sub-metering technology has equipped organizations with data on actual energy usage and can identify potential cost savings through behavioral change and waste avoidance.
