Discover the Power of Umberto 11!

We are thrilled to share the incredible feedback we've received on the new Umberto 11! Umberto 11 introduces a range of exciting new features that enhance the efficiency of working with one of the leading LCA expert tools. Here are just a few highlights:
 

Calculation of Entire Product Families: With generic modeling options, Umberto 11 enables you to calculate the environmental impacts of entire product families instead of looking at single products. This streamlines the assessment process and provides a holistic view of your sustainability performance.

Flexible Bill of Materials (BOMs) and Production Orders (PO): Umberto 11 offers enhanced flexibility in using BOMs and POs, allowing you to accurately model complex production processes.  This immensely reduces the manual effort of acquiring data for the environmental assessment. 

Scenario Management: Compare different materials and processes effortlessly with Umberto 11's scenario management features. Evaluate alternative options and identify the most promising measures to achieve sustainable products.

Simplified Pathway to Cloud-based Software Solution: Umberto 11 provides a simplified pathway to our cloud-based solution, ensuring seamless accessibility and collaboration across teams and locations. Take advantage of cloud computing power to scale your sustainability efforts.

"At Miele, we use Life Cycle Analyses especially when faced with fundamental decisions in product development. Miele has an excellent reputation with both customers and stakeholders, so we make sure our products are not only high in value for the customer but are also beneficial for the environment. We use Umberto in our daily business, so we can easily exchange data and material flow models with our long-time partner, the Öko-Institut (Institute for Applied Ecology)."

Marko Schnarr, Miele & Cie. KG

"As a leading supplier of process and packaging technology, the use phase is particularly relevant for Syntegon in the life cycle assessment of its machines. The scenario analysis in Umberto helps us to compare processes and identify optimizations. In this way, we offer our customers in the pharmaceutical and food industries the opportunity to reduce resource consumption and costs. With Umberto, the complete package of software, training & coaching convinced us. Within one year we managed to go from project start to critical review."

Steffen Carbon, Coordination Design for Environment, Syntegon Technology

"CPF is the leading food company which is committed to providing sustainable food throughout the world. We have obtained 152 certificates of product carbon footprint and reduction carbon footprint. Umberto is used to derive assessments and indicators demanded by our customers and to support decision-making for improving products and processes. Umberto is a great support for our sustainability efforts!"

Kularb Kimsri, Vice President Global Standard System Centre, Charoen Pokphand Foods Pcl., Thailand

"Umberto is a great option for us to model our complex petro chemical processes. We already have compared the carbon balances of different scenarios using CO2 as a resource for ammonia production and we plan to extend the use of Umberto for the Greenhouse Gas management in our refineries."

Dr. Miguel A. Morales Mora, PEMEX Petroquimica, Mexiko

 

„It is my task to systematically and scientifically analyze material cycles,  identify optimization potential, and present the results to our corporate clients. Umberto helps me with all these tasks. I benefit from the flexibility of the software and its features every day.“

Dr. Jörg Nispel, Fraunhofer Project Group IWKS

"Resource efficiency requires knowledge of all relevant energy and material flows. We therefore use software for our projects that enable a flexible approach. Umberto meets our standards perfectly."
