Emerson launched the smart energy plan to help customers optimize the exploitation and utilization of industrial energy

the new industrial energy team and its true BTU technology aim at the global market of $2billion

Nashville, Tennessee (October 24, 2011) - Emerson Process Management, a subsidiary of Emerson group (NYSE: EMR), today announced the launch of the smart energy plan, It aims to combine its unparalleled industrial energy technology with advanced energy management technology, so that customers can make more use of renewable fuels, reduce energy costs and reduce exhaust emissions

as refineries, manufacturing enterprises and other industrial customers are under increasing pressure to adopt lower cost fuels, the development momentum of the energy market is also becoming stronger and stronger. Such a market of about $2billion has attracted Emerson's attention. Energy costs account for more than 30% of the overall operating costs of factories, including rising fossil fuels and new emission reduction requirements, which makes industrial users pay more and more attention to waste fuels, biomass energy and other renewable energy to meet these challenges

Emerson's new energy team aims to help power plants modernize and improve their operational performance, provide them with on-site facilities to produce steam and electricity, and improve energy consumption in the manufacturing process. This overall plan can ensure the highest energy production efficiency, while reducing waste and inefficient use of energy. Emerson's technology and expertise provide the industry's only energy optimization solution, which can help refineries, chemical manufacturers and other manufacturing enterprises significantly reduce energy costs and emissions

industrial enterprises consume about 50% of the world's energy. With the rising price of fossil fuels and global emission reduction requirements, our customers not only need to improve energy management efficiency, said Steve Sonnenberg, President of Emerson Process Management In line with our smart energy plan, Emerson has launched a new platform that can change the global energy economy

innovative technology being patented

the heart of Emerson's diversified technology platform is its true BTU technology, which is being patented. It is an innovative technology for calculating the actual BTU value of fuel sources, which will make reliable energy production predictable and repeatable

our true BTU combustion control platform has transformed the combustion management mode that has been used since the 1920s. Chip Rennie, Emerson Industrial energy director, said that it is an out and out re creation of combustion model, which will make the widespread application of biomass and other low-cost fuels feasible and sustainable

this is the first time that Emerson has combined proprietary software packages with on-site control technology to help power plants use renewable or waste fuels that are easier to obtain and cheaper to create a continuous stream of steam from waste wood, grain by-products, animal excreta or industrial by-products such as coke or tail gas to provide energy for the plant. This 21st century combustion solution achieves higher efficiency and reliability. It uses waste and other renewable fuels, resulting in unpredictable energy efficiency

help customers meet international emission reduction requirements

for sustainable development, the modernization of industrial power plants can not only reduce energy costs, but also help enterprises reduce emissions to meet global regulatory requirements. The European renewable energy regulation 20/20/20 aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 20% and increase the share of renewable fuels by 20% in the energy structure of the European Union by 2020. As the world's largest energy consumer, China, as the world's largest energy consumer, aims to reduce carbon emissions by 40% to 45% by 2020 and use non fossil fuels in about 15% of energy. According to the 2010 annual report of the International Energy Agency, renewable energy is expected to grow by 1.8% every year, accounting for 8% of the total energy use in industry

we see more and more projects like biomass to energy, in which renewable fuels account for 95%, Sonnenberg added. With our performance and leading position in energy management, our industrial energy projects are expected to grow by 25% to 35% in the next five years

the latest applications of Emerson's industrial energy solutions include increasing steam production for a commercial power plant using surplus sawdust; Help a university improve the stable operation of its boiler; Make a steel plant adopt by-product gas more stably and efficiently

Emerson helped our steel plant in Port Talbot (UK) make better use of indigenous fuels - such as blast furnace gas and coke oven gas - which are by-products of our manufacturing process, said Andrew Rees, project manager for boiler upgrading and reconstruction of steel company. Control transformation is part of the overall energy management project. The disadvantage is that the timeliness is not high. The project is expected to reduce the energy consumption of power stations by 3% to 5%, and help Tata iron and steel company achieve the goal of energy self-sufficiency

the new Emerson team combines professional knowledge and key technologies

Emerson's newly established industrial energy team is led by Rennie, an expert with more than 25 years of experience in power plant management. Emerson's technology includes smartprocess boilers and smartprocess energy management software, which apply real-time intelligent functions to the production process of energy. These integrated solutions are designed to transform outdated equipment and traditional methods used by most industrial power plants, and provide new ideas for new plants

Emerson's innovative smartprocess boiler technology provides a new and unique real-time combustion control solution to solve the inconsistency between renewable energy and waste fuel sources, and automate and simplify the management of sudden changes in BTU content or fuel availability

smartprocess energy management is another high-end application software used for real-time closed-loop control. It is used to balance the steam system, manage the fluctuation and chaos of power demand, determine the buying and selling volume, improve efficiency, and automatically run the entire industrial plant at the lowest cost. On the one hand,

improving energy efficiency by 1% to 2% for customers can save hundreds of thousands of dollars, and using waste fuel to buy fuel for surface finishing can save millions of dollars every year, Rennie said. There are too many examples like this to ignore. We look forward to helping these users make their power plants meet the performance standards of the 21st century
