ABSTRACT
The article looks at the importance of improving energy efficiency. The U.S. causes around 25 percent of the world pollution and has been burning fossil fuels and natural resources for many years. Combustion of these fuels generates energy and the reaction releases the greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide that cause the planet to warm up. Carbon emissions need to be reduced by optimal use of technology. The manufacturers will be benefited by implementing efficiency and productivity measures.
