2019 Spring Symposium Part 2 - "Improving Your Energy Efficiency"
"Reducing Your Facility's Carbon Footprint"
Discussion about climate change has been taking place for many years and is perhaps more relevant today than ever before. This debate has led to global initiatives to reduce the carbon footprint of chemical process industries (CPI) facilities, which is high on the agenda of nearly every country. Regulations have been established on a global, regional and local scale to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and these regulations heavily impact CPI process operators. This presentation will describe ab approach that uses data analytics for finding and addressing root causes of process deviations that reduce energy efficiency in key plant utility systems, and presents three case examples.
