Climate Intelligence 

Smart water. Fast results.

Industrial businesses are faced with the challenge of reducing carbon footprint while maintaining productivity. Some solutions attempt to address both needs at once, which typically takes several years to start seeing results and requires large capital expenditures.

Climate Intelligence powered by ECOLAB3D™, is an innovative solution that helps businesses make informed choices on how to balance productivity and sustainability goals.

Climate Intelligence allows you to start taking steps right away to:

Reduce energy consumption
Support decarbonization
Lower operational costs
The solution enables refineries and petrochemical plant managers to create a digital replica of their water energy systems, utilizing digital twin technology delivered through our partnership with Siemens. This digital tool automatically runs optimization scenarios and points out operational settings that reduce the carbon footprint and save energy. Our team will work closely with you to help achieve the results you expect.

Advantages of a digital twin:

  • Near-real-time optimization nudges your operators to control the process energy efficiently under changing operational conditions
  • Feedback on how actual operations become more efficient after the changes made 
  • Tracking of performance and carbon intensity reduction
  • Ability to run feasibility studies and “what if” scenarios offline, in a virtual environment
