Bayer Climate Check = Climate Footprint + Energie Effizienz Check

Bayer Climate Check = Climate Footprint + Energy Efficiency Check
Climate protection is a key issue for the process industry, whether it is enshrined in corporate policy, prescribed by legislators or because climate protection also means substantial cost savings in terms of energy and raw materials.
Bayer Technology Services has developed a new tool for energyefficient and climate-friendly production – the “Bayer Climate Check”. This consists of two elements – the “Climate Footprint” and the “Energy Efficiency Check”.
Climate-related evaluation is performed using the Climate Footprint, which quantifies the volume of greenhouse gases generated by a product in the manufacturing process. We do not only evaluate the production facilities but also the raw materials and energy necessary for production and the logistics. In addition to the established costeffectiveness indicators, the Climate Footprint now offers an environmental indicator as a further decision-making tool for investment and technology projects.
The analysis of energy efficiency in production and, in particular, the development and evaluation of reduction measures are carried out using the Energy Efficiency Check. In this check, all the energyrelated parameters in a production facility are systematically tested and enhanced using best-practice solutions and checklists. This cuts the climate footprint and energy costs of production facilities significantly.
