Chemicals and Petrochemicals

Implement a best-in-class risk management framework.

The chemical industry is resource-intensive in raw materials and energy use, so it’s no surprise that they’re a source of emissions and waste. This also means that the industry constantly faces external influences pressuring them to improve environmental footprint.   

These challenges come on top of process complexities which lead to opportunities to improve the use of assets and resources. At the same time, supply chain issues and ever-changing safety and sustainability regulations also affect operations’ productivity. The industry must address these hurdles while ensuring a safe way of operating its assets. At dss+, we address these challenges by combining industry knowledge, owner-operator experience and consulting expertise to provide a platform to improve operations across the spectrum.
