Carlisle SynTec manufactures single-ply roofing systems primarily for commercial and industrial applications. In most situations, return of boiler steam condensate is a viable and often utilized energy recovery and water conservation practice. However at Carlisle SynTec, the return and reuse of steam condensate has not been feasible due to its use of a mica coating in the manufacture of EPDM (ethylene propylene diene monomer), a type of synthetic rubber. Carlisle Syntec requested assistance from the Illinois Sustainable Technology Center (ISTC) to investigate the feasibility of producing a steam condensate suitable for return to its boiler, saving natural gas, chemicals and water.
