Decarbonization, a priority for business and the environment

Decarbonization, a priority for business and the environment

Climate change is one of the great challenges of our time and the decarbonization of industrial processes is one way of preventing it, a priority objective for industry players, policymakers and companies. To this end, the Council of Ministers approved the Strategic Project for Economic Recovery and Transformation (PERTE) for industrial decarbonization, with the aim of supporting industry in its transition to more environmentally friendly models and processes and contributing to the goal of climate neutrality by 2050.

IES DescarbonizaciónCompanies with carbon-emitting industrial processes know that they need to change the way they operate. One way to do this and to address decarbonization is through phasing out fossil fuels with electricity from renewable and low-carbon sources.

In IES Soler we have been working for years in this change by providing solutions for industrial electrical heating equipment such as heaters for heating air and gases, immersion heaters for water, oils and other fluids.

Electric heaters perform an important role in all major industries with a wide variety of uses. They are essential, for example, in oil refineries, in the food industry, for air conditioning in animal husbandry, laboratories or for the supply of drinking water in cities. Not just providing the low emissions needed by these industries, they have evolved and exceeded the capabilities of fossil fuel heaters.

When acquiring electrical equipment for industrial processes, it is critical to ensure that the company can offer safe and reliable heating solutions that help reduce environmental impact. IES Soler’s electric heat designs use the latest innovations to improve performance, heater life and minimize carbon footprint.

Benefits of electric heaters

There is still time to help the environment stabilize and recover before it is too late. Reliance on electric power means zero or very low emissions. In addition, this equipment is capable of producing the same or more power while using cleaner energy to achieve the same results.

On the other hand, electrical systems become less dirty. This means that the emissions or by-products produced are cleaner and breakdowns are less likely. They are also safer as they do not burn fuel internally to generate heat, and this means there is no risk of carbon monoxide poisoning or explosions

Why implement a decarbonization strategy?

IES DescarbonizaciónTo comply with CO2 emission reductions
Engaging in industrial decarbonization reduces the carbon footprint. It is a way of complying with environmental objectives that are often included in a company’s corporate social responsibility policy and also with European Union regulations, which should stop polluting the air, water and the environment by 2050.

Moreover, if we do not reach the targets set and the expected trajectory, the European authorities will continue to impose heavy penalties on those who lag behind, as happened with the automotive sector.

To be more competitive

It’s not just about compliance, but companies around the world are seeing demands from business stakeholders such as customers, investors and consumers to be more sustainable. Therefore, companies that fail to take action will soon face increased disinterest and the possibility of decreased demand for their products and services.

Gaining confidence

This pressure is causing more and more companies to communicate their action plans and decarbonization projects, as commitment to climate change and transparency are essential to gain trust as a company. Of course, these plans must be followed by concrete actions and not just marketing or “greenwashing” actions, which are currently so fashionable.

It is therefore the perfect opportunity for industries to strengthen communication with their stakeholders (customers, employees, shareholders, etc.) and continue to commit to a real commitment to the future that awaits us.
