Go Green with AuraPortal BPM

Enhance environmental efficiency with AuraPortal BPM

These days, being successful in business is not enough; go green to achieve full environmental success.

MedioToday’s rapidly evolving society and markets are not only demanding companies to be more productive and efficient, but also to respect and protect the environment. This combination is gradually being consolidated and strengthened by the social awareness that looks after future and current interests.

At AURA, we consider these initiatives not only worthwhile, but critical for a correct modern business management. Hence AURA is proud to contribute to the enhancement of business and environmental efficiency through the implementation of BPM and its integration with state-of-the-art environmental sensors. Below are several ways BPM can manage environmental performance:

1. ISO 50001. Energy Management Standard

Medio2Implementing the ISO 50001 Energy Management Certification with BPM will help organizations to improve their energy performance. By using processes, mathematical calculations, sensors, valve control systems, lights, relays, servos, etc., AuraPortal BPM helps organizations from all industry sectors to achieve the following results:

  • Short, medium and long term energy savings
  • Awareness and control of the amount of energy used
  • Brand recognition

2. Water. An essential component of life

Medio3Water is without a doubt one of the most essential and economic elements of our living environment. In addition to quenching our thirst, 20% of fresh water is used to supply industries globally and approximately 70% goes to agriculture and farming. All of us are responsible for the correct management of this precious commodity. Water consumption can be controlled with BPM processes, establishing the maximum and minimum quantities and alerting when these limits are reached.

3. Pollution. Control of harmful gas emissions

Medio4Pollution and contamination directly damage our health. The release of chemical substances and particles into the atmosphere alters their composition and has a negative impact on all aspects of life. Industrial cities and factories are the biggest (but by no means the only) sources of pollution and, therefore, it is necessary to control their emissions. AuraPortal BPM can control these harmful gas emissions:

  • Pollution in cities (CO, CO2, NO2, O3)
  • Emissions from livestock in farms (CH4, H2S, NH3)
  • Chemical and industrial processes (C4H10, H2, VOC)
  • Fires (CO, CO2)

4. Agriculture. Agricultural efficiency

Medio5It is also possible to control Agricultural efficiency with BPM processes. Crop care can be managed and you can find out about the perfect conditions for plant growth without having to leave your home. The measurement of light, humidity and temperature levels helps to detect potential plant diseases, risk of frost or need for irrigation based on moisture levels in the soil, while at the same time allowing for the monitoring and control of high-yielding (wheat, corn, etc.) and delicate (vineyards, tropical fruits, etc.) crops, either cultivated outdoors or in greenhouses. Hence, top-quality crops are guaranteed.

  • Processes controlling pressure, temperature, liquid levels, light, etc.

5. Farming. Animal growth care

Medio6Good air quality is required in order to maintain animal health and welfare and to provide staff with a suitable working environment. Air quality is determined by the levels of gas, dust and microorganisms (bacteria, endotoxins and viruses) present. It is vital to control the air animals breathe to guarantee their healthy growth. With AuraPortal BPM processes animal growth conditions can be optimized.

  • Control of animal temperature during rearing
  • CIGR Standard. Measurement of gas levels (methane, ammonia, etc.)
  • Control of animal stress levels
