AI for better energy management in Pharma

Express Pharma published Rohit Kochar, Founder, Executive Chairman & CEO’s thoughts on AI for better energy management in pharma Industry.


AI has innumerable prospects when it comes to pharmaceutical industry and business transformation. AI-powered analytics has given the much-needed direction to the Big Data and brought a profound shift in the innovation paradigm at pharma sector. By leveraging and executing AI techniques in the core workflows, pharma companies can make all business operations efficient, cost-effective, and hassle-free.

 AI systems are a powerful tool in the research and development to deliver better outcomes for Drug Discovery. Machine Learning (ML) & Deep Learning (DL) process and evaluate massive amounts of data quickly and they also can be connected to blending room, with control parameters like, AHU fan speed, chilled water valve, hot water valve and AHU On/Off/Sleep mode, which are combined with observation parameters like, air flow rate, temperature, RH%, DP. Deployment of RL


agent at plant thus brings in the energy savings. In this case, by reducing the mass flow rates of chiller pump and boiler pumps have resulted in energy savings on chiller pump by about 66% and about 100% on boiler pump.


With innumerable benefits of AI, Pharma companies simply need to start transforming into digital businesses to be competitive. To align with this growth, pharmaceutical executives require ways to improve efficiency, uncover new business opportunities, and build better relationships with patients and prescribers. It will not be possible without a digital transformation. Hence, the sooner a digital transformation is adopted, the better it will be. The chances of catering to the future generations who will be used to everything being digital will also become better.

Bert Platform Solution for an evaporator in Pulp & Paper plant can provide the minimum annual savings is in the range of INR 4-5 Cr. and the cost is below INR 3 Cr.

The Pulp and Paper Times had a long format interview with Rohit Kochar, Founder, Executive Chairman & CEO, Bert Labs for their Jan-Feb. The focus of the interview is how Artificial Intelligence (AI) based Bert Platform Solution in pulp and paper is bringing better parameter control of the process and can result in better product quality and decrease in defects/ wastage.


The different processes in pulp and paper plant are energy and resource intensive. Most of the factories in Indian paper industry already has certain level of automation. It can be Digital Control System and SAP implementation. Bert Labs AI-IoT solutions platform Bert Platform Solution can integrate with existing system and start giving results immediately. Furthermore,  it can help achieve sustainability goals, including ESG, Zero Carbon, by bringing in efficiency in the operations. This helps in energy consumption, productivity improvement, better supply chain and logistics management.


The AI based solutions are built on three layers of Security – Encryption, Authentication and Authorisation. The cost of developing and deploying AI-IoT solution has come down recently and hence small paper mill can adopt this technology, starting in small sections and rapidly scaling up once benefits starts showing. The typical payback period can be 6-24 months depending on the scale of operation and current level of digitisation.

AI goes green. Robots in the process to make ​   the earth greener

Artificial Intelligence in climate policy making may be a good catalyst but its adaptation is quite tough. ​

Green transformation with AI aid. ​However, incorporating AI in climate policy making and climate-sensitive adaptations is not that easy. ​

In this area, Rohit Kochar classifies his clients into three buckets – those who are transforming into sustainable businesses, those who are learning about AI-based transformations and those who are still out of knowledge about green transformation. He said that when companies realize that turning greener will reduce their energy cost, it will inspire them to adopt.

Forecast 2023: Transforming Cement Industry with ​   AI driven process efficiency

Cement making is highly resource-driven, with many manual operations and energy-intensive processes. AI shall strengthen the existing processes and make cement manufacturing more robust, environment-friendly and efficient. In the cement industry setup, every piece of equipment is unique. The system needs to be trained on each process individually and then combined for the best outcome in the plant.​

Rohit Kochar, Founder, Executive Chairperson & CEO shared his views on the role of AI  in cement industry towards energy efficiency. Power and fuel are the primary cost of cement production (about 30% of the total cost). Among them, electricity and coal consume more energy and directly impact the cement plant's running. The electricity is used in many stages, from raw material crushing to clinker grinding. Applications of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) are driving the factory floor towards a better tomorrow with one click of a button to digitization, energy efficiency and carbon reduction.
