The risk of climate change is getting more severe each year, yet keeping global warming to 1.5degC above preindustrial levels could be the best way to avoid the most harmful and irreparable effects caused by climate change.
Global GHG emissions currently stand at around 33 gigatons CO2e, according to the IEA study. These emissions are caused by the combination between input energies as well as processes emission (chemical as well as thermal) that result in Co2 emissions to the environment from various sectors, including cement, chemicals, and metals.
The reduction of global warming will require a significant changes to these “hard to stop” industries that involve a substantial reductions in the use of fossil fuels extensive process electrification, increased energy efficiency, as well as an increase in the utilization alternatives to fossil fuels.
There is also a massive gap in data between the shop floor and the supervisors due to the lack of a system that can detect and monitor crucial energy parameters with ease and tracks end-to-end CO2 emissions in Scope 1 and 2.
There is a requirement for huge upfront investments to substitute fossil fuels, and the shift from traditional methods to the latest technologies will not be an easy one.

Thus, we require an integrated and long-term plan with a complete energy balance to tackle the carbon lock-in issue.
Digital technology will drive future-generation carbon neutral operation
Achieving a low carbon-intensive operation requires highly efficient operations to cut down on energy consumption and optimize the efficiency of thermal energy and minimize the use of resources. Carbon neutrality requires the balance of carbon dioxide emissions and carbon sinks by the use of deep decarbonisation as well as carbon sequestration technology.
These Emerging Technologies would play a important role in maximizing efficiency, efficiency of use of resources, and increase yield to help accelerate renewable, decarbonisation and carbon-negative projects across the globe.
AI & Digital Twins will play an important role in shaping sustainability in manufacturing, and creating the basis for a more efficient, connected and environmentally sustainable “factory of the future”.
For instance the petrochemical sector makes up 6 percent of the energy consumption in the average, and around 50% of that comes from natural gas and oil. It is believed that 60% of the energy used by the facility is consumed by furnaces.
Optimizing furnace operation with regard to a reduction in energy use will reduce the overall energy costs for the petrochemical plant, and lower the carbon footprint of operations of the plant.
The value chain demands a comprehensive AI Strategy that can expand over energy efficiency across furnaces, to downstream operations , taking into consideration the efficiency throughout each value chain.
A reduction of just 1 percent in the energy intensity of operations through real-time optimization of operations could reduce the equivalent CO2 emissions by approximately 5 billion pounds per year.
LivNSense is paving the way for the future of carbon neutral operations
LivNSense was launched and has embarked on an ambitious task to cut “100 Mega Tons” of GHG emissions in every one of the Energy Intensive Industries with the world’s first Green-AI platform, GreenOps(tm).
GreenOps(tm) lets industrial resources gain efficiency by leveraging the application of Edge to Cloud intelligent distributed system. GreenOps(tm) can be used to provide deep insights across the processes starting from R&D Manufacturing, Maintenance to QA to get a complete picture of a company’s total carbon footprint and strategy for abatement.
- The platform gathers stream and batch content from heterogeneous system within the typical manufacturing environment, using a the plug-n’-play-based messaging layer as well as robust analytics capabilities, dubbed SmartEdge4.0].
- The low latency, large volume data is examined in real time at the Edge by GreenOps AI Models (IPs) with continuous learning Physics & Chemistry Based Models in the Cloud. It makes use of the potential from AI as well as the Digital Twins the Metaverse through its unique “Energy Balance” idea to reduce carbon emissions.
- Digital Twins Metaverse Digital Twins Metaverse measures, monitors, and optimizes CO2 emissions in real-time. It also gives you the capability to determine and simulate the best processes parameters to maximize the loss of energy and decrease CO2.
The most innovative technology that is unique to this technology ” Energy Balance” technology which provides an integrated Co2e impact across the combustion, electrical energy and chemical processes in “hard to reduce” industries.
While companies are embracing Industry 4.0 as part of their manufacturing plans We’ve realized that the industry is still in the early stage and there are many gaps in the value chain , and much more work needs to be accomplished in achieving the goal of decarbonisation.
Our efforts to reduce CO2e emissions from various industries and changing the businesses to reach net zero carbon while improving the bottom line is among the major growth factors.
The future is forward
Our complete focus on not just the industrial equipment and assets, but also those who work the environment (including suppliers and vendors) is able to affect the entire value chain, allowing the transformation.
The main sector that is driving the expansion is heavy machineries (automotive) chemical metals, petrochemicals, as well as life science. Our primary focus is on high energy and chemicals has paid off.
Our ability to integrate third-party platforms has allowed us to create Green-AI as a Service model. This is the main distinction in growth “partners”-led growth strategies.
Our experimentation using the the Excellerator program from NetApp has proven to be of great benefit. NetApp’s strategy, especially for large-scale data management – storage to optimization and cost optimization tools for hybrid management of data practices has added value to our experience. This is particularly important in the context of carbon offset to ensure that our infrastructure and platform Co2e as low as possible.
Fossil fuels will remain the basis for the future zero-carbon future. Our solution offers a distinct benefit for long-term investment regardless of when processes electrification or green hydrogen technology are commercialized. GreenOps(tm) could be integrated into these technologies as an “full stack carbonisation” platform that provides a comprehensive “energy balance” over combustion, electricity chemicals, and process emission.
