Ecolab and Siemens Partner to Help Industry Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions, Improve Production
Ecolab, Inc., and Siemens today announced a strategic partnership that will help customers accelerate their progress toward sustainability and productivity goals. Together, the companies are launching Climate Intelligence, powered by ECOLAB3D™ and Siemens gPROMS, which is a new innovative solution that allows customers to virtually model different scenarios across their water and energy systems to identify opportunities to conserve water and power while also lowering their greenhouse gas emissions.
Climate Intelligence leverages the unique strengths of Ecolab, the global leader in water, hygiene and infection prevention solutions and services, and Siemens, the global leader in digital twin technology, automation and digitalization. Together, Siemens’ innovative digital twin technology and Ecolab’s ECOLAB3D analytics platform and global portfolio of solutions and expertise can help industrial businesses take concrete steps toward decarbonization through more efficient, less energy-intensive operations.
Traditional utility systems are a source of significant greenhouse gas emissions, as water requires substantial energy to heat, cool, move and treat. By improving water efficiency using new dynamic insights from Climate Intelligence, companies can drive emission reductions and preserve system reliability all at the same time.
“Water carries a significant amount of production plant energy—typically 33% up to 75%—so the opportunity to reduce emissions through more efficient operations is critical,” said Darrell Brown, president and chief operating officer for Ecolab. “As climate and energy challenges unfold around the world, there’s never been a greater need to conserve energy. Ecolab’s and Siemens’ combined expertise in Climate Intelligence can be a path for customers to meet their demanding cost, energy and sustainability goals.”
