Bayer Pursues Global Energy Efficiency Program
In conjunction with Bayer Technology Services and Bayer Business Services, Bayer MaterialScience has developed an innovative measurement and management system as part of a global energy efficiency program. This program can deliver energy savings of up to 10% at production plants and the company is seeking to establish this system at 60 of its most energy-intensive production plants around the world by 2012.
The management system, known as STRUCTese, is part of the overarching Bayer Climate Program, under which Bayer MaterialScience aims to cut specific greenhouse gas emissions per metric ton of product sold throughout the world by 25% by 2020.
“For the first time it is now possible to make energy efficiency measurable, comparable and comprehensible at operational level. This transparency ensures that each plant has clear information about its energy efficiency, thereby enabling it to adopt a systematic approach to managing it,” explains Dr. Christian Czauderna, project manager for STRUCTese at Bayer MaterialScience. The impact on energy consumption of every action conducted in a plant can be seen in real time. Operators are therefore always able to operate their plant with optimum energy efficiency."
