Edge computing enables sustainability and climate awareness
Data centres consume an estimated 200 terawatt hours (TWh) of energy each year–more than the energy consumption of some countries. They also produce an estimated 2% of all global CO2 emissions. These figures are both staggering and seemingly despairing–after all,
Why do we need more Green Chemistry programs, and how digitalization can help
Most of Novartis’s manufacturing facilities recover, recycle and re-use solvents, and the precious metal catalysts known to have a high greenhouse gas impact. In the case of two pilot compounds, Novartis was able to demonstrate a recovery rate of up to
How AI Drives Sustainability In The Manufacturing Industry?
It starts to become clearer and clearer the connection between artificial intelligence and sustainability. AI is on its way to help the world become more sustainable and that is no different for the manufacturing industry. Necessarily, the road implies addressing
Why should Scope 3 be the big focus to achieve sustainability goals?
At the industrial and domestic scale, both direct and indirect emission constitutes the contaminated carbon particles that will ultimately lead to atmospheric pollution i.e. most commonly known as greenhouse gases (GHG’s). Direct emission is concerned with the fuel-burning byproducts that
Why Technology is Crucial For Sustainable Workplace Safety
The onset of COVID-19 has shined a stark spotlight on a previously complacent attitude to workplace health and safety. Amidst spiralling infection rates and provincial lockdowns, long-standing workplace safety procedures have been strained under the impact of an invisible and
Emerging Tech and Sustainability – A Missed Opportunity
The traditional industrial terms of digital technology and environmental sustainability are not intertwined and the compelling factors remain unrelated. Sustainability through Industry 4.0 contribute to developing a better understanding of Industry 4.0 elements and the advanced technologies, considering the key
How can the world make better use of water and energy using IIoT?
Right now, more than 500 million people globally are facing acute drought water shortages. Cape Town, South Africa, working around the clock to complete massive desalination plants, faces the imminent threat of its four million taps running dry. Nearby towns
