On-Demand Webinar | Achieving Sustainable Operations - Radek Rybicki of Ingredion at ARC Industry Forum 2022
Did you know that AI for environmental applications could boost the global economy by up to $5.2 trillion in 2030, while reducing GHG emissions worldwide by 4%? The enormous potential of AI as a critical tool in our fight against climate change cannot be understated. It can prove to be a gamechanger for industrials looking to accelerate their race to net-zero, by substantially reducing their energy consumption and lowering the environmental impact of their operations.
Meet Ingredion, a leading global ingredients solutions company that makes sweeteners, starches, nutrition ingredients and biomaterials used by customers in everyday products from food and beverages to paper and pharmaceuticals. The company has aggressive sustainability goals and deployed the Canvass AI platform to eliminate waste, improve water usage, optimize energy consumption and reduce costs.
Using the Canvass platform, Ingredion was able to clearly calculate the effectiveness of its AI initiative. The company achieved a 5.09% gain in thermal efficiency, reduced emissions of 9.39 million pounds, successfully optimized natural gas usage in its boiler systems, and facilitated a US$330,000 yearly reduction in natural gas costs. Ingredion is now ready to scale the Canvass AI solution to its other processes, such as water usage and waste reduction, and other plants that rely on gas turbines and boiler systems to further strengthen its sustainability goals.
Hear from Radek Rybicki, Senior Manager Global Operations at Ingredion as he demonstrates how Canvass’s AI platform enabled the company to meet its net-zero targets.
