THE IPCC 2021 presents clear evidence that our planet is in a catastrophic state of urgency to stop global warming. Human influence has affected the atmosphere, ocean, and land. Unless we reduce our emissions immediately and radically, global warming of 1,5-2°C will be reached, and weather extremes across the globe will be more and more common.(1) COP26 has called upon accelerating the transition to low-emission energy systems to reach global sustainability goals.
Why do we, in the energy sector, need to take responsibility? 73,2% of the global greenhouse gas emissions come from the energy sector.(2) Striving towards sustainable energy is not an easy task, it often takes large investments with a long return, if any. Apart from legislation, most sustainability investments require incentives that bring more value than only environmental benefits, often in the form of money savings. Fortunately, there is technology on the market to aid on the sustainability journey and at the same time help the user save large amounts of money.
Industries packed with potential savings are Forest & bioenergy, Pulp & Paper, Waste-to-Energy, Coal Power.
What do these industries have in common? They all have boilers. If you are in one of these industries, you know that nothing beats the feeling of a clean boiler, a boiler that runs efficiently with no unplanned outages. A clean boiler does not only save you money but eases the climate impact by radically reducing greenhouse gas emissions and fossil fuel usage. Increasing the boiler efficiency will enable you to generate more power, with less fuel.
Do you want to become more sustainable and save large amounts of money at the same time?
