Efficient Production

Managing Energy Efficiency

An energy management system developed by Bayer uses a structured and systematic approach to help users harness potential energy savings that have already been identified. This is made possible by adapting energy usage to specific production and working conditions.

STRUCTese™ (Structured Efficiency System for Energy) is a management system developed by Bayer MaterialScience in association with Bayer Technology Services and Bayer Business Services. Its goal is to optimize energy efficiency in the long term. It will build on the results of the Bayer Climate Check and help the company to identify and harness the potential for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

The new management tool the company hopes will set new standards in industry will be in use at 60 plants worldwide by the end of 2012. By the end of 2010, the system had already been introduced at 30 plants, leading to cuts in primary energy consumption of 550,000 megawatt hours and the avoidance of 135,000 metric tons of CO2 emissions.

Tailored energy management systems have been implemented within the sub-groups Bayer HealthCare and Bayer CropScience to realize also in the less energy intensive production and business lines sustainable energetic optimizations.
