aspenONE V12.2 includes new models to help customers identify how to reduce emissions, capture carbon and enable recycling efficiencies across their entire value chain.
Bedford, Mass., November 2021 – Aspen Technology, Inc., a global leader in asset optimisation software, recently announced the availability of the newest aspenONE® V12 software release. The release, V12.2, gives companies new sustainability models and product capabilities that accelerate digitalisation efforts in support of their sustainability initiatives.
The aspenONE® V12 solutions now include more than 50 models, including many that provide insight into where operational efficiencies can be improved upon in support of Scope 1 and 2 CO2 emission reduction targets. Using these models, customers can identify how to reduce emissions across the entire value chain; reduce usage of energy, water and feedstocks; transition to new energy sources like biofuels and hydrogen; and enable the circular economy through processes such as plastics recycling and waste-to-chemicals.
“Meeting CO2 emission reduction milestones in the quest to become carbon neutral requires companies to capture operational efficiencies by leveraging and deploying digital capabilities that deliver the insights needed to quickly and easily make adjustments to stay on track,” said David Arbeitel, Senior Vice President of Product Management at AspenTech. “The new release also provides a wide range of usability enhancements across our product portfolio to deliver faster time-to-value and drive high value business outcomes.”
