Substances or materials represent with are rising tendency the largest cost in the manufacturing sector. The cost drivers are mainly by the shortage of raw materials, reduction of the vertical range of manufacture using high quality materials. At the same time, the public expects that companies meet their responsibilities for the entire value chain. These value chains are sometimes very complex and range from very many stations up to the farmer.
BSE supports you with goal-oriented, responsible, holistic and efficient influencing of material systems by:
Planning, analysis, optimization and control of production economical systems
Development / improvement of sustainable supply chains
Increasing resource productivity
Prevention and reduction of emissions and waste
Diversifying your product chains
Avoiding and reducing the use of ecologically unsound substances
Realignment of supply chains
Product development and innovation.
At the same time cost reduction potentials are identified and strategies to increase material efficiency developed. The measures focus, inter alia, in the reduction of material and resource losses by improving the quality, optimization of production processes, material recycling or recycling and multiple use of water for industrial purposes.
Companies that want to compete profitably in the markets of the future must internalize environmental aspects on an equal footing with the social and economic aspects.
BSE supports you in all life cycle phases of sustainability:
Strategy development and implementation planning "climate neutral" and resource-efficient company
Introduction of sustainability criteria for steering of the corporate management
Development of standards to ensure sustainability throughout the value chain
Training of staff and change management in company
Even only one product can in depth be analysed and accounted for its material flow throughout its life cycle the "Life Cycle Assessment". With the BSE you receive help to define enterprise-specific objectives by:
Identification of potentials for environmental improvement
Decision Support in strategic planning
Even today, there are legal requirements for minimum savings in the bioenergy sector. Products that do not comply with these requirements cannot be sold in the market. It is expected that these requirements will be extended and intensified to other areas such as food, feed and chemical engineering markets.
BSE provides advice about:
Development of methods for accounting of emissions and resource consumption
Creation of comprehensive studies and reports
Product and Process related greenhouse gas balance
Identification of starting points for improvements
Development of CDM projects
Trading of CO2 certificates
Calculation of the "carbon footprint"
Identifying and executing CO2 / GHG cost reduction potentials
Operating and interplant Material Flow Management therefore show potential, which can be estimated good and which serve both the environmental and the economic dimension in terms of sustainability.
