In the dynamic landscape of today's industrial production, companies are navigating through evolving regulations while working to achieve sustainability objectives. The quest for immediate access to validated production and emissions data aimed at minimizing margin losses and enabling agile decision-making has led to a growing emphasis on digital transformation initiatives in various industrial processes.
Refineries, chemical plants and other industrial facilities are actively seeking solutions to enhance business processes like yield accounting. The goals are clear: reduce material losses, make informed decisions, boost operational performance and progress toward greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction goals.
Traditionally, yield accounting has been a labor-intensive and error-prone process, relying on manual and non-standardized methods to measure, track, and report production efficiencies and inventory/material balances. Recognizing the need for a transformative approach, AspenTech has introduced new emissions tracking, monitoring and reporting enhancements in Aspen Unified Reconciliation and Accounting™ (AURA) as part of the latest update to aspenONE.
As forward-looking businesses worldwide commit to net-zero pledges, AURA's role becomes increasingly pivotal—to drive efficient, data-driven strategies. Here are three ways AURA accelerates sustainability goals:
- Streamline Emission Model Building
AURA is designed to accelerate innovation for sustainability by offering "out-of-the-box" features that streamline the creation of comprehensive, plant-wide production and emissions models. With a simple click, users can achieve precise and consistent monitoring and tracking of GHG emissions, providing reconciled data for analysis and reporting.
- Facilitate Site Emission Data Validation and Visibility
Armed with this data, industrial sites can leverage AURA’s powerful data visualization and analysis capabilities that empower users to generate dynamic emission reports, identify major emission sources, and resolve instrumentation errors. Moreover, the reports can be easily shared with key stakeholders via the web, fostering collaboration and transparency.
- Improve Stakeholder Decision-Making
By empowering key stakeholders with validated and reconciled production and emissions data, AURA enables better decision-making across the board. The shift from manual, error-prone processes to a streamlined and automated solution not only reduces the risk of margin losses but also enhances the overall agility in decision-making.
With its latest capabilities, AURA can deliver tangible value to customers in their pursuit of sustainable industrial practices. Its latest enhancements exemplify a commitment to addressing the challenges faced by industrial facilities, providing a pathway to efficient management of production and emission data. As industries worldwide strive to meet sustainability goals, solutions like AURA become indispensable in achieving a balance between economic prosperity and environmental responsibility.
