CEED Studies Custom and Efficient Early Design

Basic design is the best moment for an operator to optimize the use of every resource and optimize a project environmental impact and economics.

According to the International Energy Agency (World Energy Outlook 2016), despite the impressive progress made in recent years, the transition of energy supply towards a low-carbon future is not yet in view. Such a transition requires enhanced efforts of all parts of the energy sector with energy efficiency as key element. In industry in particular, energy efficiency is the major potential contributor in order to economize direct GHG (Greenhouse Gases) emissions.

Regarding water consumption, it is important to bear in mind that about 60% of refining and petrochemical sites are subject to a water stress that is considered medium to high, and 25% are located in areas where precipitation is expected to decrease.

In order to cope with these challenges and based on its strong knowledge in process and technology, Axens Solutions offers an innovative approach, CEED™ , standing for “Custom and Efficient Early Design".


CEED Studies can be performed at the beginning of the basic engineering stage.

The customer selects a set of criteria representing its specific priorities and constraints, for instance energy efficiency, CO2 emissions, or water footprint. Axens then works with them to conduct a study, enabling several options to be elaborated and evaluated, all tailor-made to meet operators’ needs.

Journée Technique - Performance Energétique et Décarbonation des procédés industriels

Le secteur industriel représente en 2015 18% des émissions de GES nationales.
Les émissions industrielles sont dues pour partie à la combustion d’énergie fournissant l’énergie nécessaire à la production et pour partie restante aux procédés industriels proprement dits. La stratégie bas carbone vise à l’horizon 2050 une réduction ambitieuse des émissions du secteur aux seules émissions jugées incompressibles selon l’état des connaissances actuelles et les technologies disponibles, soit une réduction de 35% des émissions en 2030 par rapport à 2015, et de 81% en 2050.
