Brendan Fedor is our fourth year mechanical engineering inter. While studying all aspects of mechanical engineering, Brendan is most excited about energy sustainability. ITL supports and mentors new engineers. We try giving Brendan practical but real energy challenges related to water sustainability and thermal energies. More specifically, we asked Brendan to work with us on Clean-in-Place (CIP) optimization projects, especially in areas requiring preheated or reheated water. He is working on clean energy water heating using solar tubes that mount to facility rooftops where diverted water is heated. Brendan is also working on a water sustainability design that intercepts freshly processed RO water heading to a drain. The diverted water runs through a cleaning and storage system. The clean reclaimed RO water reduces city water requirements for boilers and cooling towers used at the facility.
