KROHNE Accelerates Industrial Sustainability Conversation and Commitment at COP28
KROHNE, one of the leading global manufacturers of process instrumentation, announces its activity and involvement during the United Nation’s global climate change summit COP28, now running until 12th December 2023 at Expo City Dubai.
This platform has an increasingly important role in the global arena of energy and digital transformation and climate change discussions. The event is organised every year by the United Nationas Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) with this year’s presidency held by H.E Dr Sultan Ahmed Al Jaber, also Group CEO of ADNOC.
KROHNE has a long heritage in supporting automation and process control across multiple industries through precision engineered measurement equipment and technology and realizes its role in achieving net zero carbon emissions itself whilst also enabling its valued customers to do the same.
One of the themes of COP28 and an area still requiring greater agreement regulation is the area of measurement, whether in emissions monitoring, logistics around newer energy format such as hydrogen or the carbon capture and credit pricing arena. KROHNE is well positioned with its advanced metrology research and development to enable standards formulation greater clarity moving forwards.
EcoVadis-certified KROHNE will be present throughout COP28, whether engaging as the German-Emirati Joint Council for Industry and Commerce (AHK) Sustainability Partner, participating as a member of the United Nations Global Compact UAE Chapter Network member or in other associations.
KROHNE has also been heavily involved throughout 2023 in the International Renewable Energy Association (IRENA) group of industry leaders formed at COP27, the Alliance for Industry Decarbonisation (AFID).
Alongside industry peers such as Siemens Energy, TATA Steel, EDF, ABB, TAQA, Engie and many others, KROHNE technical experts have contributed to a working group and white paper on the importance of green hydrogen, to be released during COP28 on 6th December. The day before on 5th December KROHNE leadership will participate in a CEO roundtable dedicated to defining progress and next steps of the global AFID group.
KROHNE continues to drive the push towards accepted standards in measurement and offers the only certified flow computer for hydrogen applications currently on the market, which is seen as central to the measurement and therefore, the new energy source is being deployed, and a Hydrogen Purity Measurement solution is being developed.
This solution utilizes precision ultrasonic flowmeters, along with pressure and temperature metering technologies, to offer faster and cheaper purity measurement to customers worldwide.
In response to changing customer needs, the company's Marine division has created the leading EcoMATE solution, which accurately tracks carbon emissions in accordance with the Fit For 55 EU Regulation. KROHNE continues to invest in research and development to assist other high-emitting industries in preparing for future carbon emission regulations.
Frank Janssens, Vice President of KROHNE Middle East and Africa, expressed pride in the company's century-long history and its commitment to values such as pioneering capabilities and a family-style environment.
The industry plays a crucial role in the conversation about climate change, as it is responsible for over a quarter of global carbon emissions. KROHNE is proud to offer innovative solutions and a precision engineered product portfolio to address sustainability challenges.
The company's focus on increased connectivity, digitization, and a platform-agnostic approach, combined with its long-standing reliability and safety, is highly valued by partners for efficient operations across all industries. KROHNE looks forward to collaborating and contributing to a better future through.
