Improving the performance and efficiency of a precious resource – and delivering peace of mind.

MeasurABLE IMPACT

Sustainability, in a broad sense, is the capacity to endure. The word points to a long-term development concept aiming to help humans meet their present needs without compromising upon the ability to also meet their future requirements. The word is also  used today as a marketing image which too often does not reflect the reality as a whole. At Aderco, we take this issue very seriously indeed. In order to take a step towards true sustainability, we must measure and compare different operational scenarios and choose the one with the most sustainable outcome. To do so, we must consider and work with the 3 pillars of sustainability, namely, Efficiency, Economy and Environment.

EFFICIENCY * ECONOMY * ENVIRONMENT = SUSTAINABILITY

 

Efficiency

Efficiency can be very difficult to evaluate because of the numerous factors involved in the equation. However, the most realistic way to evaluate real efficiency is by comparison to some reference which, in this case, would be the operation before the treatment. Firstly, the operation must be evaluated as-is and then re-evaluated after a typical trial period, in order to compare the differences and show the improvements. Some key factors must be considered in order to have a realistic approach and  be able to evaluate a meaningful performance chart. In general, fuel atomization and combustion are optimized (less carbon fouling), the work performed per unit of fuel is increased, exhaust temperatures are lower, sludge rejects are minimized and performance remains at a hight level for extended periods of time.

Economy

With the Aderco cost assessment tool, our technicians can evaluate the cost savings generated by the continuous use of Aderco additives in a given operation. Many parameters are big cost generators and can be optimized, generating real economy in many areas. The first step consists of measuring part of the operation before the treatment. Then, after the typical trial period of cleaning action, the same parameters are re-evaluated and the total economy is calculated, treatment cost included. Other economy generating elements are less visible in the short term but are very important to consider. A more flexible maintenance program can also be implemented thanks to improved operational reliability. And what about the reduced risk of expensive breakdowns... time and time again the Aderco solution is proven to be the winner in the long run.

Environment

By taking in consideration the different elements measured to have an effect on the carbon footprint and the environment, we can obtain a reference to which compare different scenarios. Our goal is to find a solution to minimize the overall carbon footprint of an operation by working on the fuel related parameters. Several options need to be evaluated to be able to choose the solution with the most sustainable outcome. In the end, this is the first step towards sustainability and  the right choice for building a responsible corporate image.
