Important work of the Institute is carried out by standing committees that address topics of broad concern to the industry.

Educational and Promotional/Marketing
The Educational and Promotional Marketing Committee coordinates the preparation of literature and videos that provide the industry and public with information about the compressed air and gas industry and the individual sections of the Institute. These materials help to stimulate the markets for member companies' products by communicating the capabilities and benefits of air and gas compressors, blowers, dryers and pneumatic tools. Among the responsibilities of the committee are the continual review and updating of the Institute library of technical literature, including the industry's reference manual, the Compressed Air and Gas Handbook.

Energy Efficiency
The Energy Efficiency Committee works to enhance the energy efficiency and performance of compressed air systems. CAGI is a founding sponsor of the Compressed Air Challenge (CAC) and a Department of Energy Allied Partner. The CAC is a public/private initiative fostered by the Department of Energy to serve as a resource to help industry achieve energy savings and to increase the effectiveness of compressed air systems.

The Energy Efficiency Committee oversees CAGI's efforts to improve compressed air system effectiveness and efficiency and guides the institute's cooperative activities with DOE and CAC. These activities include development and organization of compressed air system training programs, production and distribution of educational materials, etc. to benefit compressed air system users.

The Standards Committee's objective is to coordinate the development of standards in each section and to participate in the review and publishing process. This process ensures that CAGI scope products entering commerce are tested and perform to established uniform minimum levels for user satisfaction and protection. CAGI maintains close liaison with other bodies concerned with standards, including ISO, PNEUROP in Europe and ANSI, ASME and other industry groups in the United States.
