Kelvin, the collaborative control software company delivering industrial intelligence, has launched Kelvin Maps™ – one of the world’s first industrial solutions for measuring, monitoring and reducing enterprise carbon emissions.
Amid a backdrop of global pressure to boost corporate sustainability, Kelvin Maps intuitively presents vital production data to engineers and operators – delivering visualisation of the entire operations, including the impacts of any inefficiencies driving emissions.
This new category of software provides a unique view into the manufacturing and production processes – allowing companies to quickly find emission source offenders and reduce their carbon footprint, leading to boosted profitability and sustainability.
Kelvin Maps’ patent-pending technology identifies bottlenecks, prevents failures, and enables improved operations through the simulation of production scenarios.
“Global enterprises are struggling to capture emission levels across their supply chains and businesses. They must adopt a bottoms-up approach to boost transparency, visibility and measurement inside their operations,” said Peter Harding, Founder and CEO of Kelvin. “Kelvin Maps helps enterprises and their supply chain partners hit net-zero goals by visualising and optimizing the entire production process in detail. Our product helps find your problems and fix them in rapid time.”
Carbon offset prices may rise by 3,000 per cent by 2029 under tighter rules. This Bloomberg statistic points to an increasingly stringent regulatory and investment environment driving the need to meet Greenhouse Gas (GHG) reduction goals with the same importance as achieving shareholder returns. “Kelvin Maps accelerates emissions disclosures and boosts the global emissions control movement to meet their 2030 and 2050 emissions targets. With Kelvin, you can collaboratively find and fix production and operational issues that impact your carbon emissions,” explained Harding.
This sounds like good news for African countries with a large carbon footprint such as South Africa – which leads the continent with 452 million metric tonnes of carbon monoxide. Egypt ranked second with 213 million metric tonnes, with Algeria coming up third with 154 million tonnes. With climate change topping one of the world’s biggest problems presently, it is impossible to eliminate Africa from the solution.
Kelvin Maps simulates production scenarios and helps slash carbon output by plugging into an intuitive, interactive solution that actively simulates your production lines. It goes beyond traditional condition-based monitoring solutions to improve production outcomes and reduce maintenance costs with AI-driven intelligent operations.
According to Suhail Jiwani, Chief Technology Officer of Kelvin, “With human-assisted and cognitive AI capabilities, Kelvin Maps creates a single source of truth for a complete facility or a production process – making it possible for engineers and operators on production lines to align on their approach to drive efficiency and reduce emissions. We unify human understanding with artificial intelligence to achieve real impact.”
As a result, it boosts collaboration in real-time to help find new ways to produce more, reduce emissions, and drive efficiency to make smarter control decisions.
“We are transforming the way plants and factories operate, and the way executive leadership addresses carbon emission goals and production gains,” concluded Harding. “By providing engineers and operators immediate and aggregated information about the health of their assets as one system, we’ve helped reduce carbon emissions for our clients by up to 40 per cent, while boosting production by 20 per cent.”
