FUDIPO at SPIRE Industry 4.0 – Brussels, 1-2 October 2018

FUDIPO was present in the SPIRE workshops that took place at the beginning of October. Once again we did not miss the opportunity to present the progress in the FUDIPO project, presenting a poster during both sessions and discussing the project strategies.

During the workshop about Digital Technologies in Process Industry on the 1st of October, we confirmed that the optimisation and control tasks which are in current development in FUDIPO are completely aligned with the needs of a Process Industry. It is currently demanding stronger Digitalization of the production processes and innovations in the optimization methods, searching for more efficiency in the production, in the use of raw materials and in energy consumption and reduction of CO2 emissions.

Those objectives will be reinforced and extended in the SPIRE vision for 2050 of an “integrated and digital European process industry fostering a ‘well below 2ºC’ scenario and a fully circular future for our planet and society”. Once again, the main goals of FUDIPO project share in many aspects the value proposition of the future SPIRE 2050 and we keep working to make them come true.

A conference paper of FUDIPO accepted to ICAE 2018, Hong Kong (China)

A conference paper under FUDIPO project has been accepted to the International Conference on Applied Energy 2018, which will take place in Hong Kong, China, on 22-25th August. The theme of ICAE2018 is “Innovative Solutions for Energy Transitios”.

The paper addresses a machine learning approach to real-time biomass characterization in Energy Conversion Processes using Near Infrared Spectroscopy, being Mobyen Uddin Ahmed from MDH University the main author.

FUDIPO conference paper at PAPERCON 2018

PaperCon, the world’s largest technical conference for the paper and packaging industry, took place on April 15-18, 2018 in Charlotte, NC, USA with the theme of “Shaping the Future through Innovation”. Designed by industry professionals, PaperCon draws CEOs, mill managers, superintendents, scientists, process engineers, and suppliers from over 32 different countries for a comprehensive conference that includes a peer-reviewed technical program, multiple networking opportunities, special events, and exhibits. This year PaperCon collocated with the Control System 2018.

Moksadur Rahman from Mälardalen University presented one conference paper related to the Pulp and Paper case study of FUDIPO project during CS5 – Pulp Measurements and Controls session.

MDH attends GPPS conference in Zurich and presents a conference paper

Ioanna Aslanidou (MDH University) presented a position paper in GPPS conference, last 10th-12th January, in the frame of FUDIPO project, about the role of micro gas turbines in the future green energy system. The paper presented was received well, with a good discussion following the presentation.

The forum where the paper was presented was a high-level event, with policymakers from companies around the world. The small size of the forum allowed more discussions with professionals from the academia and industry and feedback was obtained from experts in the field with different backgrounds and needs.
