Going, going … green!

AspenTech extends HySys to simulate GHG emissions. Global reporting Institute to develop sustainability guidelines for oil and gas. Spill protection in Locus Technologies’ ePortal. Pike Research study.

Rhe latest release of AspenTech’s AspenOne package is claimed to ‘streamline’ greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reporting such as EPA Reporting Rule CF 40 Part 98 and Best Available Control Technology (BACT) guidelines. New modeling functionality in AspenOne Engineering makes it easier for process manufacturers to comply with global HSE policies and regulations. GHG calculation capabilities in HySys accurately compute GHG emissions for simulated processes, showing CO2 equivalents—www.oilit.com/links/1107_16.

The Global Reporting Institute (GRI) and Arthur D. Little are developing sustainability reporting guidelines for the oil and gas sector. The GRI Oil and Gas Sector Supplement is a version of the G3 Guidelines tailored for the oil and gas sector. G3 guidelines are used to measure and report the economic, environmental, social, and governance dimensions of their activities, products, and services—www.oilit.com/links/1107_17.

Locus Technologies has expanded its flagship ‘ePortal’ application to include management of compliance, data and information for the EPA Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) rule. This introduces the industry’s first enterprise level SPCC software deployed in the Cloud—www.oilit.com/links/1107_18.

A report from Pike Research forecasts the carbon management software and services market will reach $5.7 billion by 2017—www.oilit.com/links/1107_19.
