KBC Introduces New Version of Process Simulation Technology to Support Green Energy
Petro-SIM technology provides operators with rapid gains in terms of improving energy efficiency while lowering operating costs and emissions. This release offers a comprehensive method to achieving zero emissions.
FREMONT, CA: KBC (A Yokogawa Company) has declared the release of Petro-SIM® 7.2 process simulation software, which is at the core of KBC's award-winning process digital twin. This update improves simulation capabilities for renewable fuels, a wider range of bio feedstocks, energy efficiency, as well as environmental protection. New technologies are being developed to account for emissions from combustion sources and to control energy efficiency—the integration with MySEP technology benefits process design engineers. There are also new features for plant monitoring and operator training.
As more countries declare a goal of achieving net-zero emissions by 2050, industries are under intense pressure to cut their greenhouse gas emissions. Most businesses utilize one of three techniques to achieve this goal. They can boost energy efficiency, employ lower-carbon-intensity feedstocks, and/or capture carbon to store leftover emissions.
Petro-SIM technology provides operators with rapid gains in terms of improving energy efficiency while lowering operating costs and emissions. This release offers a comprehensive method to achieving zero emissions. Organizations can establish a process digital twin from feeds to CO2 production, capture, transport, and storage utilizing Petro-SIM modeling software. Real-time energy optimization is linked to process/yield conditions, scaling, thermodynamics, electrochemical corrosion, and remote equipment performance monitoring.
Renewable fuels can now be modeled using the Petro-SIM software. Operators can customize and optimize the usage of low-carbon feedstocks, such as LNG, bio-feeds, and hydrogen, in order to power industrial operations.
"Decarbonization is a global imperative," stated Russell Byfield, KBC Global Simulation Business Leader. "We continue to improve our best-in-class refinery reactor models, implement new tools to calculate emissions from combustion sources over the life of an asset with time-based simulation, and to manage energy efficiency from upstream Oil and Gas, to LNG, Bio-Fuels, Refining, Petrochemicals, and Fertilizers. By applying the concept of 'One Model, Many Uses' Petro-SIM technology helps teams across the enterprise to make informed decisions that maximize asset potential, reduce risk, and increase profitability."
