Improvement of resource efficiency in process industry is a highly complex task. The plants are operated under changing conditions, and the resource efficiency is determined by the actual operation, not by the ideal operation assumed during plant design. Existing Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) can rarely support daily decision making processes in plant operations. Additionally, local and plant-wide resource efficiency may be in conflict.


A systematic concept (step-by-step guidance) for a successful selection and definition of real-time Resource Efficiency Indicators in order to monitor the daily operations and take short-term decisions based on the lessons learned from EU-MORE project.

  • Improved resource efficiency without major technological investments
  • Cost savings and reduction of waste and emissions
  • Broad adoption in the process industries
