Yokogawa Electric Corporation, which provides advanced measurement and control solutions across a broad range of industries, has released the OpreX Carbon Footprint Tracer, a cloud service that enables the visualisation and reduction of CO2 emissions in the process manufacturing industries

OpreX Carbon Footprint Tracer calculates CO2 emissions based on measurement data and other types of primary information collected from instrumentation systems, power monitors, and other systems, and facilitates the formulation of strategies for calculating and reducing CO2 emissions.

For the calculation of CO2 emissions, this service integrates with the SAP Sustainability Footprint Management service and SAP ERP solutions, enabling the visualisation and management of product carbon footprint (PCF) based on European standards.
