Energy is the critical factor for all process industries that are turning raw materials into semi-finished or final products by undergoing chemical or mechanical processes - such as chemical and petrochemical industries, steel mills, fertilizer plants, the food and beverage industries and many more. The energy transition ushered a new industrial era. And we are ready to energize it.
Our Business Area Transformation of Industry provides a unique combination of mission-critical rotating equipment, applications for electrification, automation and digitalization for process industries that our customers and partners can rely on to make their individual decarbonization priorities a reality. We support industrial operations to become smarter, more efficient, more sustainable resulting both in superior CAPEX and OPEX utilization, and an improved environmental footprint.
The industrial world is still dependent on fossil fuels
Cement, steel, and chemicals require carbon and fossil fuels as part of their production process and account for a large portion of global emissions. However, we can decarbonize these hard-to-abate industries through technological innovations and alliances.

Value from waste
Waste heat recovery represents a significant opportunity for cement producers to improve plant efficiency and reduce their carbon footprint. This article looks at several proven technologies for capturing and utilising waste heat, and explores additional pathways for industry decarbonisation through sector coupling.(International Cement Review, December 2022).
Preparing gas turbines for the energy transition
There is an increasing need, and potential, for hydrogen to decarbonize power generation. In this comprehensive white paper, learn about how Siemens Energy is approaching this unprecedented opportunity, readying gas turbines for the energy transition.
Key drivers on the way to net zeroProcess industries provide ingredients for the well-being and growth of societies: materials for infrastructure, machinery and goods – sustainable, reliable and flexible energy is pivotal for industries such as petrochemicals, chemicals, fertilizers, metals, mining, and cement.
Our many years of experience in industrial applications enables us to help our customers build flexible and customized solutions that deliver reliable, affordable and sustainable energy. Efficiency, environmentally more compatible fuels and fit-for-purpose operations are key to master the energy transition.
Reducing carbon footprint while driving profitable growth
The more efficiently we use electricity, heat and fuels, the more successful the energy transition will be. The cleanest and cheapest energy is that which is not used in the first place. Increasing energy efficiency is key to a successful energy transition.

Energy transition and decarbonization: Pathways for the chemical industry
In our new whitepaper Stefan Diezinger and Thomas Tiemeyer show pathways for the chemical sector to bring its operations and value chain on track toward a more sustainable and resilient energy future.
Decarbonizing this industry is particularly important because of its key role in delivering technology, products, and services that enable the energy transition, and because by reducing its CO₂ emissions, it will enable other sectors downstream to decarbonize their own value chain.
