Reducing Asset Wastage in Heavy Industry: A Data-Driven Approach

The heavy industry sector is a powerhouse, contributing significantly to the UK economy. However, it also generates substantial waste, impacting both financial resources and the environment. In this article, we delve into the scale of asset wastage in heavy industry, explore the potential for improvement, and showcase how Atmo Technology’s real-time data analysis can revolutionise efficiency, cost savings, and environmental impact.

The Hidden Cost of Asset Wastage

Annually, the UK generates a staggering amount of commercial and industrial (C&I) waste. In 2020 alone, approximately 40.4 million tonnes of C&I waste were produced, with 84% of it originating in England. This waste includes everything from inefficient energy usage to underutilised machinery and equipment. The financial burden of asset wastage is substantial, affecting profitability, competitiveness, and sustainability.

Unlocking Efficiency with Real-Time Data Analysis

Atmo specialises in asset management and environmental insights. Our mission is to empower heavy industries to optimise their operations while minimising their environmental footprint. Here’s how we do it:

  1. Asset Optimisation: By analysing real-time data, we identify inefficiencies in asset utilisation. Whether it’s machinery, vehicles, or infrastructure, our insights help businesses maximise their return on investment (ROI) by using assets more effectively.

  2. Environmental Insights: AtmoCore, our proprietary software platform, visualises emissions sources on-site. We help heavy industry players understand their environmental impact, from carbon emissions to other pollutants. By pinpointing areas of waste, companies can take targeted action to reduce their footprint.

  3. Employee Health and Safety: Reducing emissions isn’t just about the environment; it’s also about protecting staff. By minimising harmful emissions, heavy industries create safer working environments for their employees.
