Performance assurance

Energy optimization

Energy usage in process facilities can account for up to 50% of operating costs and is a major driver of CO₂, SOx and NOx emissions. Yet striving for improved energy performance alone can have a highly detrimental impact on yield performance. We offer industry-leading energy and utility system optimization technologies and consulting advice enabled to identify a multitude of cost, environmental and operating improvements that balance the yield-energy trade-off.

Benefits

The key benefit from our products and services is delivery of an agile and responsive energy and utility system, at both plant-wide and unit levels, that always operates at the lowest cost possible across steam, fuel and power systems.

Greenhouse gas emissions and water consumption is also minimized.

RELATED CASE STUDY

Energy and water savings in a low-price environment

KBC was appointed to develop a sustainability program for a diversified group of manufacturing companies active in Petrochemicals, Chemical Specialties, Agri-Nutrients and Metals. The group was looking to achieve a corporate target of 25% reduction in energy and water consumption by 2025 at one of their methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE) production facilities in the Middle East.

Our other solutions

Operations management software

We offer deep industry and operations domain knowledge to ensure you focus on the right KPIs and set realistic operating targets. Many of our software applications include robust built-in data reconciliation algorithms to eliminate interpretation errors due to bad or missing data.

Feedstock optimization

Feedstock is the biggest operating cost for most plants. We offer deep know-how of industry and production economics, coupled with high fidelity simulation models to allow accurate prediction and optimization of feedstock choices.

Process optimization

We offer high fidelity simulation models of process facilities to faithfully represent reality, utilizing fundamental chemical and mechanical principles to create accurate digital twins of process facilities. Our subject matter experts can then provide advice and opinion to enhance yield performance and throughput.

Distribution and supply chain optimization

Our process simulation software enables optimal feedstock selection and identification of potential imbalances between interdependent operations. Our cloud services monitor product inventories and process operations and extend the visibility of your supply chain beyond the plant.

Production accounting software

We offer state-of-the-art technology that enables production accounting and data reconciliation. In addition, we can provide loss studies which incorporate benchmarking performance against best practice, and development of product loss management programs.

Asset integrity assurance software

Manufacturing facilities only generate value when they are running. We offer consulting solutions focused on asset strategy, leadership alignment and governance model development, through to reliability assurance, online maintenance and shutdown maintenance support.

Organizational competence and alignment

We offer consulting solutions focused on achieving strategic leadership, delivering organizational change management and human performance improvement.
