Accelerating sustainable solutions
Decarbonization is one of the largest challenges of our time. It’s especially hard because we must simultaneously support rapidly growing energy demands while reducing CO2 emissions. We must harness the power of natural resources while preserving them, at the same time.
At Alfa Laval, we’re building a world — together with our customers and partners — to do just that. With relentless innovation, we’re accelerating the transition to more efficient, cleaner energy solutions and moving the circular economy forward.
Our deep industry knowledge enables us to optimize customer processes, overcome the toughest challenges and continue making the world more sustainable — every single day. It’s all about advancing better — for your business, for people and for the planet we all share.

Three pillar approach
Our approach to net-zero is built on three pillars: energy efficiency, clean energy and circularity. We can address the low-hanging fruits of energy efficiency here and now with existing high efficiency technologies. The clean energy processes and infrastructure being developed will be optimized using these same technologies. Lastly, as we move more toward a materials-focused marketplace, circularity becomes critical in order for all of us to have the needed resources for this transition and reach to our net-zero goals.

Reach your peak performance
An overwhelming majority of existing heat exchangers aren’t operating at their original design ‘nameplate’ condition. Reaching peak performance doesn’t require adding an additional heat exchanger or upgrading existing heat exchangers. Instead, simply reconditioning and repairing your existing heat exchanger, which is an element of the Energy Hunter program, can result in returning the heat exchanger to its peak performance.

Our global challenge: decarbonization
The challenge of decarbonization is twofold: we must simultaneously support rapidly growing energy demands, while reducing CO2 emissions to meet the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement.
As this chart shows, our current course is far from where it needs to be. Achieving the Paris objective of limiting global temperature increase to 1.5°C by 2050 will require a “Sustainable Development” scenario pathway. However, it is worth noting that energy needs are expected to grow by as much as 54% during that same period. No single, simple solution can therefore transform the global energy system. It will require a combination of technologies and fuels.
At Alfa Laval, we have the experience and knowledge to support your transition, with solutions to enable energy efficiency, clean energy and the circular economy. Read more below or contact us today.
