Abstract

Indicators for the resource consumption and environmental impacts of products and production processes in process industries have been developed and are increasingly used for many purposes. Most companies monitor their energetic and material efficiency and report Key Performance Indicators (KPI), normally in retrospect over extended periods of time (e.g. per business year). KPI reflect the choice of raw materials, the plant technology used and the operational performance without distinguishing between the different influences. As such, they cannot support decision-making processes in daily plant operations. With real-time Resource Efficiency Indicators (REIs), the effect of technical improvements and of operational policies can be measured and actions can be derived for real-time or near real-time plant performance improvements.This step-by-step guidebook will support the European process industry in identification and selection of relevant REIs from the operational point of view.The methodology consists of twelve steps for selecting and defining the process units for consideration, identifying and selecting REIs, and implementing and evaluating them. The guidebook provides a technical introduction to the methods that should be used and a detailed step-by-step procedure that can be followed to successfully implement the core ideas of real-time resource efficiency monitoring and improvement. For reference, additional technical details are provided in the appendices.
