AIChE Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety
Tuesday, April 12, 2022 - 9:40am to 10:05am
Constantly tracking âPlan vs Actualâ is an extremely important undertaking. Concurrently, gathering all the data and transforming it to meaningful information becomes part of the unique memory, that can be utilized to establish capabilities and constraints, during the current ârun-lengthâ of the asset (between turnarounds). Developing such markers and utilizing it to achieve âbest achievable performanceâ has become critical.
Ethylene industry is looking towards sustainable solutions, the new technology options would take time to be commercial and profitable process. The major influence on the ethylene manufacturing plants sustainability in next few years would be through solutions which would drive lower emissions in current operation through sustainable improvements.
Use-cases will be presented to discuss the opportunities and challenges of meeting sustainability goals through technology improvements, smart modifications and utilization of power of data analytics through AI/ML.
