More efficiency and sustainability with Digital Enterprise
Alternative raw materials such as biomass and renewable sources of energy such as solar, wind, and hydro power are becoming more and more important for the global supply of power and raw materials – as alternatives to crude oil that make economic and ecological sense. Biorefineries play a key role in this context.
Sustainability at Siemens is consistent with our values: responsibility, outstanding, and innovative
We use technological advances and innovative solutions as an important contribution to environmental protection. Sustainability plays an important role to achieve profitable and long-term growth and in gaining competitive advantage for our customers.
The task of green refineries is to make use of biomass and renewable energies by converting them into various intermediate and end products by utilizing a wide variety of technologies. We support operators of green refineries in ensuring that the processes in their plants run as flexibly, efficiently, and sustainably as possible. We are convinced that the resulting opportunities for climate protection, value creation, and resource efficiency are enormous. There are as many forms of renewable energy as there are ways of using them. Various biofuels, energy sources, and green chemicals can be produced from such biomass as corn, grass, algae, or solid waste and from such renewable sources as wind, solar, and hydro power. The high-quality by-products can also be used for animal feed or fertilizers.
Power to gasclose
Conversion of excess energy by electrolysis into "green" hydrogen which can be used in varied ways.
Generation of electrical and/or thermal energy by combustion of biogas/synthesis gas or biomass in power plants.
Organic materials are converted by means of microorganisms or enzymes, e.g. for bioethanol.
Bio-refineries transform biomass or "green" gas into "green" chemistry, i.e. into biofuels and bioenergy. The process uses by-products efficiently.
