FELIX® energy & environmental calculation

MOLKEREIFORUM – UPCOMING IN 2021 WITH FOCUS ON “SUSTAINABILITY”

MolkereiForum®

For the fourth time, the LfL Bayerische Landesanstalt für Landwirtschaft and GKC AG planned to organize the MolkereiForum®.  Due to the corona crisis, the event unfortunately had to be cancelled in 2020 and 2021.

However, we hope to be able to welcome you again at the MolkereiForum® 2022. The topic “Sustainability” will highlight the challenges, but also the similarities between ecology and economy from different perspectives. There will be competent speakers and interesting presentations, in the usual and proven format. The event takes place annually at the dairy school in Kempten and is attended by numerous participants.

FELIX® ENERGIE- & ENVIRONMENTAL CALCULATION:

Save Resources - Reduce Costs

Do you know the environmental balance sheet of your company? Where are the hot spots and what immediate measures can be taken to realize quick wins?

What effects does CO2-tax have on product calculation, on contribution margins and what are the optimization approaches to save resources and reduce costs?

How does the business plan affect the environmental balance?
What happens if sales and production volumes change?

Raw materials, supplies, electricity, steam, water, cleaning agents, losses, waste, etc. have one thing in common: they are relevant for both costs and environment.

FELIX® energy- and environmental calculation is available for planning, simulation, and target-actual calculation.

The simulation enables you to calculate different optimization scenarios and display environmental, cost, and result effects in parallel.

FELIX® Energy and environmental calculation in use

Combining Economy and Ecology

The calculation of all environmentally relevant energy and material flows along the value chain is carried out with differentiated quantity and process calculation.

In order to quantify the environmental impact, the assessment is based on influencing factors that are relevant for your business (e.g., greenhouse gas emissions, recycling rates, proportions of renewable and fossil energies, etc.).

For the presentation of results, the environmental impact factors are allocated to each individual product via processes and cost centers.

The combination with traditional cost accounting allows for a parallel consideration of economic and ecological effects.

The results can be applied to, for example, in input-output balances, proof of carbon footprints, energy balances and in your company’s sustainability report.

Material Flow, Process & Energy Analysis

When introducing the FELIX® energy and environmental calculation, we ensure that both the transparency requirements are met and the resource efficiency is increased.

OUR APPROACH

  • Coarse-grained analysis (hot spots and influencing factors)
  • Identification of opportunities to improve environmental performance and cost reduction
  • Conception & structuring of energy and environmental calculation
  • Analysis of material flow, processes, and energy (inputs, consumptions, losses, waste, outputs, etc.)
  • System architecture and setup, introduction phase, testing & tuning, go-live
  • Aftercare & optimization

We have many years of experience in analyses of raw materials, material and loss analyses, as well as in optimization of processes and energy consumption. For result verification, meaningful benchmarks are available.

Digitalization

We support the implementation of digitalization solutions and can refer to successful reference projects:

  • Integrated SCM production planning and control processes across all planning periods and production stages with integrated quality assurance and efficiency controlling.
  • Automated production planning from rough, detailed, up to plant and process order planning including planning of material supply and laboratory sampling.
  • Dairy Quick Planning and Integrated Dairy Business Planning with raw material, component- and co-product accounting.
  • Industry-specific planning and controlling KPI system with visually supported transparency.
  • Process consulting for the integration of technical and business planning, management, and controlling processes.

Using Digitalization – Mastering Challenges

Volatile raw material and sales markets, diverse raw materials, flexible raw material valuation, transparency, sustainability, demographic change, among many others are becoming increasingly challenging for companies, both now and in the future.

Digitalization offers the opportunity to increase efficiency, transparency, and, in particular, the quality of planning, control, and information processes.
