Roadmap to Decarbonization

Your Roadmap to Decarbonization

Wherever you are on your path to net zero, Armstrong will meet you at your point of need.

Our expertise, flexibility and in-depth understanding of thermal utility infrastructure allows us to begin the process wherever it makes the most sense for you. Your starting point will be based on your company's objectives and the unique requirements and conditions of your facilities.

Trap Management

A proactive, comprehensive, best-in-class steam trap management program is critical to reaching your net-zero goal.

Thermal Assessment

This high-level walk-through of your facilities enables our experts to evaluate your facility's thermal utilities system.

Thermal Studies

Your baseline of utility generation and use is established by our experts, based upon your actual operational data and measurements.

Decarbonization Alternatives Study

After identifying and analyzing alternative sources of energy generation, Armstrong's experts establish your plan of action.

Detailed Decarbonization Studies

Armstrong serves in a consultant role to ensure system stability as source suppliers conduct detailed studies of decarbonized thermal utility generation.

Decarbonization Complete

We're here to make it easier for you. Armstrong will be at your side throughout the entire decarbonization process and beyond.


Your Roadmap to Decarbonization will include thermal mapping of your facilities, planned redundancies, and all the steps necessary for lowering energy consumption and reducing environmental emissions to reach your net-zero goal. We take everything into consideration, including:

  • Your goals and objectives
  • Production process
  • Maintenance and reliability
  • Safety
  • Energy reduction and efficiency
  • Existing or potential issues
  • Foreseeable production and product trends for the future


We'll help you minimize energy use by your equipment, optimize your system to ensure maximum efficiency of energy use by production process, and decarbonize energy generation by replacing fossil fuels with renewables or installing carbon capture on fossil fuel installations.


Armstrong will help you establish your baseline of utility generation, including fuels and energy used, efficiency, operational practices, and heat usage. Your plan will identify areas within your plant and processes where energy use can be minimized or eliminated by applying solutions such as reducing setpoints, upgrading process equipment, and decreasing cycle times.


Your Roadmap to Decarbonization will show you how to maximize efficiency of energy use within your plant and production processes by eliminating energy losses, desteaming, electrification, and recovering waste heat, as appropriate.

  • Optimization projects include: savings in water, sewer, fuel and CO2; and simple payback.
  • Capital projects include: improvements related to thermal efficiency as well as system reliability and maintenance
  • Non-capital projects include: operational/behavior changes; on-site, web and virtual training


Armstrong, together with our partners, will help you decarbonize the primary energy sources used by your facilities—guided by comprehensive thermal studies and research conducted by Armstrong's trained experts. From installing carbon capture on fossil fuel installations to producing heat using renewable energy sources such as renewable electricity and gas, hydrogen, biomass, geothermal, solar and thermal storage, we provide the solutions you need to reach your goal.

Armstrong is with you, every step of the way. We can also:

  • Help secure financing
  • Provide guarantees of performance
  • Insure outcomes
  • Operate and maintain your thermal utilities throughout the continuum
