Steven Driver Ph.D., Sanofi Biologics Division

Access the Recording

The presentation will focus on how Sanofi achieved a 15 percent reduction in energy consumption by applying the sustainable commissioning concept to their manufacturing and laboratory research facilities. The audience will also learn about the importance of setting an environmental goal and how to construct a roadmap, which is critical to achieving the goal. The energy audit process and asset conditions assessment will also be reviewed, along with the integration of fault diagnostics and how it links to risk management and reliability.
