Regional Manufacturing Institute of Maryland (RMI) and Maryland Energy Administration (MEA) Launch Cost-Free Air Handling Assistance Program for Maryland Manufacturers

Manufacturers can potentially reduce the risk of business disruption from COVID-19 by improving facility air flow, filtration & ventilation. RMI’s Manufacturing Disruption Mitigation Assistance (MDMA) can help eligible Maryland manufacturers with this process. (View shareable MDMA flyer here.)

Through our MDMA, our contracted team of engineering professionals:

• Provide an in-depth, onsite assessment of a manufacturer’s site and system operations related to ventilation and energy efficiency.
• Identify solutions (e.g., HVAC system upgrades) and a strategy for improving facility air flow, filtration & ventilation.
• Identifying opportunities to increase energy efficiency.
• Assist in identifying and applying for funding resources (e.g., tax incentives, rebates, grants, loans, etc.) for the identified opportunities, solutions and strategies.

All at no cost to participating eligible manufacturers!

RMI’s MDMA is your next resource to ensure production continuity and your competitive edge…all at no cost to you!
