      Strategies for decarbonation
      Strategies for decarbonation

      The climate crisis is one of the greatest challenges of our time. This is why the EU has set itself the target of becoming the first climate-neutral continent by 2050. Achieving climate neutrality should therefore become increasingly important for companies in the beverage industry.

      To develop a clear vision and the main focal points of our decarbonation strategy for you, we collaborate with you to clarify the following questions at the beginning of the sustainability consultation: 

      • Should climate neutrality be reached, i. e. a condition in which there is no impact on the climate?
      • Or are zero emissions the target, meaning a zero-sum balance when it comes to CO₂ emissions? 
      • Do you aim to achieve complete or partial energy self-sufficiency?
      • Or do you have possible goals in-between? 
      • And for which areas or scopes does this target apply?

      Sustainability analyses
      Sustainability analyses

      Source and sink, Sankey and PINCH analyses are used to calculate the potential for the energy-related use of untapped heat currents and thus reveal possible energetic process optimisations. 

      Our services increase your value:

      • Information about unused heat currents (losses, waste heat, reduction, regenerative sources)
      • Knowledge about the efficiency of systems and production processes
      • Overview of potential energy recovery systems

      Derived from the calculated potential, you receive a plan of a recommended course of action for improving the line efficiency. You can use it to lower your primary energy consumption and thus save operator costs.

      Concepts for energy and media

      We develop a holistic energy and media concept in line with your sustainability targets. To do so, we unite Krones expertise from the various spheres of activity and combine them to form individual solution approaches. The basis for each concept is the recording and analysis of all product-relevant data and influencing factors.

      Based on our “avoid, optimise, recycle” approach, you receive:

      • Transparency regarding energy and media consumptions
      • Information about potential areas for energy recovery and process combinations,
      • Alternatives to supply and disposal technologies,
      • And options for utilising renewable raw materials and storage capacities 

      A comprehensive concluding report explains the conceptually developed energy and media savings. If successfully implemented, it will allow you to save primary energy and operating costs and thus lower your CO₂ footprint.
