Singapore’s industrial sector accounts for about 60% of Singapore’s CO2 emissions. The process and petrochemical subsectors are the leading industrial energy consumers, contributing to the bulk of CO2 emissions. From the perspectives of corporate ESG responsibility and the economic cost of carbon pricing, it is essential for the industry sector to adopt energy efficiency as a core strategy to reduce emissions while lowering total energy costs and boosting industrial competitiveness. This 5-day course is designed to enable energy managers and plant facility engineers in the process and petrochemical industries to identify energy-saving opportunities within their plants.
