Towards realization of
a carbon neutral future

~Solution for visualizing compressed air leakages,
  compressor operation rates, and C02 emissions~

As temperatures rise due to global warming, countries around the world are being called on to take efforts to achieve carbon neutrality. The industrial sector is no exception, with some suppliers having carbon neutrality goals imposed upon them. Carbon neutrality efforts do not only protect the environment, they lead to optimization and savings on energy bills and can increasingly act as a means to gain social trust.

Low-carbon measures in Thai

Around 60% of the fuel in Thailand is imported natural gas, and its price has increased, due to the Russia-Ukraine situation. Power in Thailand is highly dependent on fossil fuels, with research (*1) showing Thailand's CO2 output as 1.5 times the average.

The Thai government has declared to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 and reduce its costs for importing fuel. The country must gradually reduce its dependence on imported natural gas and make a change to low-carbon energy technologies.

Around 60% of the fuel in Thailand is imported natural gas, and its price in recent years has increased, in part due to the Russia-Ukraine situation. It is said that the country must gradually reduce its dependence on imported natural gas and make a change to low-carbon energy technologies.

Do you have
visibility of air leaks
at your production sites?

As part of the push for carbon neutrality, energy cuts are sought at production sites. An often-overlooked fact is how high a portion of energy use is used by air compressors.

Energy may be wasted due to the source pressure of a compressor being inappropriately left at its factory setting, or due to air leaks from pipes.

Both cases are difficult to diagnose by simple observance, making it necessary to use a solution that visualizes the usage status of compressors and pipes and reveals wasteful energy consumption.
