Pulp and Paper

The SIPAPER product family includes everything that an ecological and cost-efficient plant requires. The solution modules for residuals utilization, water treatment and process optimization support intelligent and cost-efficient environmental protection in the paper and cellulose industry.


Generation of electrical power from the heat lost from cooling towers and clinker cooler helps to reduce energy costs for industrial plants and lower greenhouse gases. In cooperation with well-known plant constructors, SICEMENT supports the cement industry with planning and installing innovative heat recovery systems with short payback times.


Siemens Marine Solutions offers sophisticated technologies that support long-term, environmentally-friendly performance for ships. Marine Solutions implements the latest automation systems and diesel-electric drive systems to ensure that ships operate efficiently, reliably and environmentally friendly. The diesel-electric main drives are particularly environmentally friendly thanks to their reduced pollutant emissions.


The metals sector has been actively involved for many years in reducing the environmental impact and the energy intensiveness of production. Siemens VAI as a leading supplier of "green solutions" has been helping its customers to achieve this – in terms of increased energy efficiency, intelligent utilization of exhaust gases or dust filtering. Environmentally compatible technologies, such as COREX, FINEX or Arvedi ESP can frequently be implemented to reduce costs.


One of the greatest challenges for Siemens Mining Technologies is to reduce the electricity consumption of mines. One way of reducing energy costs involves Variable frequency drives (VFD). These can reduce the energy consumption by up to 20 percent.
