The best technology often depends upon the relative size of the valve and the existence of a compressed air system. If a pressurized air system already exists, adding a few more pneumatic valves to it is likely the best choice. In a greenfield application, an all-electric actuation solution may be better option, particularly when the capital and operational cost of a new compressed air system is considered. Other drivers impacting the decision include a requirement for variable stroke/torque profiles or precise positioning, the ability to power actuators with solar power, or water-constrained environments, which raise air compressor operating costs significantly.
Decarbonizing the Future
In the next ten years, global emissions need to be cut by as much as 50%. The global push towards net-zero is putting pressure in the hydrocarbon space to set tangible and actionable decarbonization pathways to reach short- and long-term sustainability goals. As we...
Asia Pacific Sustainability and Decarbonization Podcast Series
Companies across the globe are placing a much greater focus on sustainability and decarbonization in their manufacturing and production processes. This is true across the Asia-Pacific region. In this initial podcast in our Asia-Pacific Sustainability &...
Automation at Heart of Decarbonization Initiatives
With the global push to reduce the volume of carbon emitted into the atmosphere, what role can automation play? Emerson's Jonas Berge tackles this question in a LinkedIn essay, Automation: Enabler for Decarbonization. Jonas opens his essay: Most people have no idea of...
Innovative Technology and Partnering when Embarking on Sustainability and Decarbonization Journey
Skids and process equipment for hydrogen production need the integration of many products from different vendors, creating possible project delay. Emerson provides with comprehensive range of control and measurement techniques along with digital solutions for OEMs and EPCs, enabling them to minimize project delay risk.
Meeting Environmental Sustainability Goals with Innovative Automation
A range of pressures are forcing industrial organisations to make a strategic shift in environmental sustainability. Manufacturers must reduce greenhouse gas emissions and comply with tighter environmental legislation or risk exposure to litigation on compliance failure.
Accelerating and Scaling Up the Hydrogen Economy
Europe is taking a leading stance and in doing so has formed a public-private group, the European Clean Hydrogen Alliance, which Emerson became part of in 2020. By joining this alliance, we will be at the forefront of hydrogen deployment and innovation.
Industrial Energy Efficiencies on the Path to Decarbonization
Decarbonization is a hot topic at this year's CERAWeek. In a panel, Industrial Energy Efficiencies: The path to decarbonization, Emerson's Peter Zornio shared the role that technology can play in this initiative. Peter pointed out that new sensors have become...
