Solving for Net Zero in Essential Industries: Greening By Emerson
Energy Source Decarbonization
We are working towards zero emission goals and instilling solutions that work towards decarbonization is the first step for "Greening By". The time to invest in renewable energy solutions – including advanced biofuels, biomass, hydrogen, reduced carbon LNG, nuclear, wind and solar – is now.
Wind Turbine Management
Our portfolio of advanced technologies fosters more low-carbon energy solutions for a better tomorrow.

Energy & Emissions Management
Today, up to two-thirds of energy produced is wasted, failing to fulfill the energy needs of its intended application, like heating, electricity and transportation. Energy efficiency technologies and software can optimize yields and better use resources. There is also an enormous opportunity to reduce industrial emissions by detecting and preventing leaks, optimizing combustion processes and implementing capabilities like carbon capture and storage.
Carbon Capture Utilization and Storage
To achieve net-zero emissions, carbon capture capacity must increase by more than a hundredfold by 2050. With continued investment in carbon capture, storage, and usage globally, we can succeed.
Having the right data, in the right hands, at the right time is crucial to energy and resource efficiency. Digital transformation with The Industrial Internet of Things allows you to make decisions faster and more accurately.
Our digital twin solutions expertise helps you prepare for the future with dynamic simulation software. In physical environments, you can run testing and host trainings all while leaving the space unaffected.

Electrification & Grid Systems
A key strategy to achieve net zero is to convert energy-intensive processes to electric. When those electrified applications are supplied with renewable energy, we have a potentially zero emissions energy supply. Innovation in battery storage plus advanced optimization software for electricity grid management will play key roles.
Emerson’s Ovation Green control system provides advanced generation control with renewable electricity applications.

Circularity & Waste Reduction
A fundamental way to cultivate a more sustainable society is to explore the trapped value of materials and resources at the perceived end of their original useful life. Emerson is working with a wide set of industries ranging from: better water stewardship, advanced recycling of commonly used products like spent batteries and discarded plastics, to the conversion of biologic feedstocks like wood chips into products like packaging, textiles, tires and more.
Advanced Plastics Recycling
Advanced instrumentation increases plastic recycling efficiency, while reducing energy consumption and waste.
How to Outsmart Mother Nature with Renewable Energy
As weather trends intensify, the power industry is facing greater challenges than ever to keep the lights on. Extreme conditions such as prolonged drought, intense heat, high winds, sub-zero temperatures, large wildfires, heavy rains, and flooding can hinder energy production and elevate demand for electricity. This often results in increased brownouts, rolling blackouts, or even total power outages.
Emerson Named 2023 ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year for Energy Management
ENERGY STAR award recognizes companies that have superior energy management programs and demonstrated their commitment to environmental protection and continuous improvement in their buildings and facilities.
Emerson Promotes Sustainability Education Among UAE School Students
Emerson donates around 1,000 trees to schools in United Arab Emirates through Treedom, a web-based platform that promotes environmental sustainability and allows people around the world to plant trees remotely.
Smart(er) Grid: Powering a Reliant, Resilient and Renewable Mix
All over the world, we rely on electricity and energy to power our homes, our workplaces and the organizations that are cornerstones to everyday activities—from grocery stores and restaurants to schools and hospitals.
