Day 1 - Game changers in the energy system and the role of the chemical industry
Together with CEOs representing the Energy, Mining and Chemicals communities, Solvay's CEO Jean-Pierre Clamadieu shared insights on the mega trends in the energy system and the impact of digitization on the existing business models.
"As a responsible chemical player, we want to leverage the development of technological innovations that increase our commitment to the environment" said Jean-Pierre Clamadieu, in a dinner discussion organized on January 17, 2017 at the World Economic Forum.
He highlighted the fact that if automation has made its ways into chemicals plants decades ago, the availability of cheap sensors allowing to generate very large amount of data and new data analytics concepts (so called "big data") represent a significant opportunity to improve our plants efficiency, reduce our raw material consumption and waste generation and allow more flexibility in plant operations making it possible to follow demand patterns and reduce inventories.
The fast development of reliable and competitive renewable energy production is an opportunity for us to revisit our sourcing policy with the objective to reduce our CO2 footprint and meet some specific customer's requirements.
