The United States economy has been increasingly challenged by high energy prices that are due in part to a heavy dependence on foreign oil. Concurrent with this challenge, is a widespread belief and concern that global climate changes are in progress due to rising production of greenhouse gasses. The challenge for our customers and the overall global community is to find new and imaginative ways to balance the needs of our contemporary society with solid economic and environmental principles.
