About
The chemical processing industries are among the top of all heavy industries in CO2 emissions. With ever-evolving climate change accords and pressure to decarbonize and achieve net zero, major chemical producers have developed aggressive goals and announced major investments. But many are left wondering where to decarbonize and how to get started.

It is important to have a modern control system to serve as the digital foundation for measuring and monitoring. You can’t make improvements without access to the baseline data. Equally important is working with an automation and digitalization partner that has in-depth industry knowledge to maximize your plant’s performance while helping to meet your sustainability goals.

The chemical processing industries play a significant role in helping to reach global Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) goals by modernizing their control systems and deploying the latest digital technologies.
This webinar examines decarbonization opportunities and some key applications that address needs in many segments of the chemical processing industries, as producers look to meet their ESG goals.
