Accurate and Consistent Simulation Models

KBC is steadily working towards our vision of enabling all our simulation models to be automatically self-updating. Creating always accurate simulation models and process digital twins to provide a consistent basis for up to the minute decision-making by many departments and disciplines. This also enables your valuable technical simulation resources to be more productive with their limited time. A true One Model, Many Uses solution.


Model your assets over their complete lifetime to assess and compare various decarbonization options and strategies. With the expert assistance and guidance of KBC’s global best practice consulting or with your own team assess and compare the best CCUS technologies for your application, their lifecycle cumulative emissions, their Capex and Opex, and clearly plot your pathway to Net Zero.
