Emerson will host a series of presentations at ACHEMA Pulse that outline how advanced automation technologies can help chemical and life sciences companies make step-change improvements in operational performance and environmental sustainability. Emerson will offer thought-leadership keynotes, customer case studies, and technology presentations that inform participants how to successfully digitally transform operations to meet the challenges of decarbonisation, increasing efficiency, improving quality, and reducing time-to-market.
Underpinning these sessions will be a range of customer experiences, with Covestro guiding participants through a distributed control system migration project at a batch production plant, BASF explaining the benefits of control system health monitoring, and Dow discussing the importance of applying functional margin, when proof-testing valves, to increase reliability and safety. A presentation by Evonik will provide insight into digital transformation in process plants, Dynea will discuss implementing wireless monitoring solutions, and Applikon will explain how to reduce drug research and development costs and reduce time-to-market.
In the first of two keynote presentations, Roel Van Doren, group president global sales at Emerson, will explain how advanced automation technologies can help industrial companies address their environmental sustainability challenges, such as improving energy efficiency by optimising equipment performance and meeting the demand for clean fuels, such as hydrogen. In a second keynote, Peter Zornio, Emerson’s chief technology officer, will look at how emerging technologies are creating new industrial computing architectures that help to transform operations and drive efficiency improvements.
