Digital twin enabling the green transition

Green transition: environmental and economic well-being

The green transition is a process of transforming economies and societies towards more sustainable and environmentally friendly practices. The aim of the green transition is to reduce the negative impacts of human activities on nature and the climate, while ensuring social and economic well-being. Key aspects of the green transition include:

Recycling and efficient use of materials: this means using fewer resources and minimizing waste by reusing, repairing or reusing materials that have already been extracted or produced.

Conservation of natural resources: this means protecting and restoring ecosystems and biodiversity that provide services and resources essential for human life, such as water, air, soil and food.

Use of renewable energy and material sources: this means replacing fossil fuels and other non-renewable sources with clean and renewable alternatives such as solar, wind, hydro, biomass or geothermal energy.

Minimizing the use of materials that pollute the environment and climate: this means avoiding or reducing the consumption of products and services that have a high environmental impact, such as greenhouse gas emissions, pollution or deforestation.

Minimizing harmful by-products in production: this means applying cleaner techniques and methods that prevent or reduce the generation of pollutants and hazardous substances in industrial processes and activities.

Developing environmentally friendly processes and practices: this means adopting innovative solutions and best practices that improve the environmental performance of products and services throughout their life cycle, from design to disposal.

The digital twin can help boost production and maintenance efficiency and innovation

A digital twin is a virtual representation of a physical object, system or process that can be used to simulate, monitor, optimize or control its real-world counterpart. It is a data source that collects and updates information from sensors, devices or other sources that measure the status and performance of a physical entity. It is also data analysis that applies algorithms, artificial intelligence or other methods to process and interpret data and generate insights, predictions or recommendations.

A better level of planning and forecasting can be achieved through the platform. It helps to test and validate different scenarios and configurations before implementing them in the real world. This reduces costs, risks and errors. Foresight also helps to achieve more efficient operation and maintenance.

Monitoring deviations and errors, taking proactive solutions and observing process performance and efficiency in real time is possible with the digital twin. It also helps to explore new opportunities and areas for improvement, and to create new value propositions and business models through innovation and learning.

Get results based on full situational awareness

The digital twin is a powerful tool that can help enable the green transition by providing a holistic view of the environmental impacts and benefits of products and services. With the digital twin, industrial companies can achieve:

More efficient data management and processing using 3D views

Reduce resource consumption and waste generation by optimizing material flows and utilization rates

Combine and analyze data and utilization of visual limit values and status data

Conserve natural resources by protecting and enhancing ecosystem services and functions

Clear display of real-time data and the necessary integrations for data collection from different factory systems and other data sources

Minimize the use of materials that are harmful to nature and the climate by assessing their life-cycle impacts and choosing more sustainable alternatives

Minimize harmful by-products in production by applying cleaner technologies and processes that prevent or reduce pollution and emissions

Develop environmentally friendly processes and practices by introducing innovative solutions and best practices that improve environmental performance and efficiency.

The digital twin can thus contribute to achieving the goal of the green transition to a more sustainable and environmentally friendly economy and society.
