Tetra Pak and ABB pioneer digital energy assessment programme to help food producers reduce their environmental impact and cut costs

 

Tetra Pak has today announced it is developing an energy assessment programme in collaboration with ABB to help food and beverage producers lower their environmental impact and cut costs. These solutions are being showcased in the Swedish Pavilion at Hannover Messe 2019 between April 1st and 5th.

The programme provides an assessment of the entire plant, helping customers minimise
their environmental impact and maximise profitability. Based on this analysis, Tetra Pak
provides recommendations for food producers on opportunities to reduce energy consumption and help them make informed decisions about how resources are used in their
plants.

Based on pilot projects in the Americas, the programme can potentially reduce carbon
emissions for food and beverage manufacturing and cut energy cost by between 15% and
25%.

The strategic collaboration will combine the strengths of ABB Ability™ digital solutions and
Tetra Pak’s unique expertise in food manufacturing, and build on both companies’ global
installed base, deep domain and digital transformation expertise.

Johan Nilsson, Vice President at Tetra Pak, said: “There is a sense of urgency for all
industries to reduce their environmental impact across their operations, and we are
developing programmes together with our partners to reduce this impact for our customers
and the overall industry. The plant assessment programme is an excellent example of an
area where we have found and created opportunities for environmental savings.”

“With this strategic collaboration, Tetra Pak and ABB will create and drive a leading
manufacturing ecosystem to provide Tetra Pak’s customers with the most advanced digital
solutions and services,” said Visar Krasniqi, Group Vice President, Digital Transformation at
ABB. “Additionally, this will enable Tetra Pak’s customers to run ABB’s digital solutions and
their operations with improved overall efficiency, flexibility and sustainability.”
