Measuring and reporting on emissions and power consumption is a vital part of being a sustainable and responsible resources organisation. Resources companies around the world are aiming to minimise their greenhouse gas emissions over the next 10 – 30 years, with the goal of reaching net-zero emissions by 2050. Carbon accounting data is also now used in everything from carbon tax/emissions trading schemes to determining banks’ lending criteria. However, without the right data at hand, greenhouse gas accounting can also be a very time-consuming and complex exercise, especially if you have plants that operate in multiple reporting jurisdictions. This is where a powerful digital shortcut like MI Core® and MI Scenario® can help.
MI Core® and MI Scenario® provide plant operators with a reliable, trusted and straightforward way of tracking, analysing and potentially reducing emissions.
MI Core® gives you a sophisticated digital twin model that centralises all of your plant’s data and can also capture all emission-creating activities across all stages of the plant processes. This includes carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), sulphur dioxide (SO2), sulphur hexafluoride (SF6) nitrous oxide (N2O), specified kinds of hydro fluorocarbons and perfluorocarbons, as well as energy production and consumption. Importantly, it also gives you the ability to track, report on, and manage your plant’s emissions in granular detail. MI Core® also provides the level of insight and data required to fulfil the mandatory reporting requirements for your jurisdiction.
An extension to MI Core®, this product enables you to set budgets, targets and forecasts that help you to identify ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and power consumption.
Track direct process carbon emissions and plant electricity consumption on an hourly basis.
Get insights into your plant’s consumption of fuels such as coal and diesel, as well as calculated emissions based on your plant’s instrumentation and process chemistry.
The MI Core® digital twin is able to calculate streams such as fuel consumption, even if it is not directly recorded by the plant. This information can then be used in further calculations to determine greenhouse gas emissions.
Understand emissions associated with the consumption of reagents – select suppliers that may result in lower emissions associated with production or delivery.
MI Core® can also be used to report emissions of other gases that need to be monitored/reported, including N2O and SO2.
Use the straightforward tools in MI Scenario® to compare your actual emissions to your targets.
