FUDIPO will attend MONSOON final conference in Turin with other SPIRE projects representatives – SAVE THE DATE!

SAVE THE DATE for the Digitized Operations for Sustainable Process Industries Pathway Towards INDUSTRY 4.0 organised by MONSOON, with the support of FUDIPO, COPRO and COCOP projects, to be held in Turin (IT) on September 20th 2019.

The workshop will present some results from EU funded projects on digital operations in process industries and focus on plant-wide monitoring and control of data-intensive processes.

The four projects funded under the SPIRE-02-2016 topic will present major objectives and outcomes. A specific focus will be put on MONSOON project that will detail and demonstrate the developed platform supporting online monitoring and predictive approaches. The workshop will include also a poster session where projects working on digitized operations in industry environment will present visions and results. The event will end with a panel session dedicated to the next steps toward full digitization of process operations.

Attendance at the workshop is FREE, but the number of participants is limited. You can REGISTER here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/digitized-operations-for-sustainable-process-industries-pathway-towards-industry-40-tickets-66692151019

FUDIPO presents a paper in SUPERHR19 conference in Savona (Italy)

A paper related to designing new system solutions using simulation and use this to optimize the solution in the FUDIPO study case – heat & power plants – will be presented by MDH colleagues in the SUPERHR19 conference next week! The title is: “Future directions for CHP plants using biomass and waste – adding production of vehicle fuel and other chemicals”.

SUPERHR19 is the acronym of SUstainable PolyEnergy generation and HaRvesting Conference, which will take place in Savona (Italy) on September 4-6 2019. The SUPEHR’19 Conference will bring together industry, academia, and research world to exchange experiences, ideas and technical results on future technologies for sustainable energy generation, encompassing the whole range from large power plants to small energy harvesters. The conference will be held inside the Savona Campus, a branch of the University of Genova, Italy.

More info about the paper will be posted soon!

ICAE and SIMS 2019, co-chaired by FUDIPO coordinator Erik Dahlquist, took place on August 12-16 in Västerås (Sweden)

On August 12-16, the city of Västerås (Sweden) hosted two conferences of international prestige. The main conference was ICAE, the International Conference of Applied Energy. This was the 11th conference and the first time in Northern Europe. There were 1100+ submissions of full papers and 800+ were presented as full papers or posters. Moreover, more than 800 participants from 54 countries attended, with a majority from China and other Asian countries.

On the other hand, the city was also running the Scandinavian Simulation Society event (SIMS) as a track within ICAE. It was the 60th conference of this society, which is the oldest simulation society in the world still existing. It is part of Eurosim with 16 local societies in Europe and Russia. The focus was on what is also the core of FUDIPO project, that is smart systems like artificial intelligence for process industries and utility sector.

Within ICAE, a series of sessions on Intelligent Energy were also arranged, which is also very close to what we do in FUDIPO.

The chairmen for the conferences were Erik Dahlquist (FUDIPO coordinator) and Jinyue Yan, editor in chief for Applied Energy, both professors ar Malardalen University. The Journal o Applied Energy is the basis for the conference and has today an impact factor of 8.4 and got 12707 submissions of full papers last year, from which some 1800 were published. The network of reviewer contains more than 6000 single reviewers. 4749 papers came from China, 856 from the US, and 796 from India, the three largest submitters. There were 4.76 million downloads of full papers in 2018. MDH Future Energy presented eight papers at the conference, and four of them directly related to the FUDIPO project research.

More information about FUDIPO papers will be posted soon.

FUDIPO partner MTT attends BHKW Forum, 7th May 2019

The BHKW Forum is a German conference dedicated to CHP and related technology and legislation in Germany. Our partner MTT participated in the conference with a stand focused on MTT EnerTwin technology.

The EnerTwin is a micro CHP (Combined Heat and Power) system where a boiler and a small power plant are combined in a single durable device. The heart of the EnerTwin is a microturbine that drives a generator. The microturbine delivers 3,2kW electrical power and 15kW thermal power for heating and hot tap water. The EnerTwin is the first cogeneration system based on a microturbine. Microturbines offer great advantages in reliability, life and maintenance costs.

MDH attended HARMONI SUMMIT joint event in Brussels, 16-17 January

The HARMONI SPIRE H2020 project organised a joint event on 16-17 January called “HARMONI summit”. The objective of this meeting was to encourage the dialogue on an effective framework to facilitate and foster the innovation in EU industries. More than 150 experts engaged in the exchange of ideas coming from all sectors of the process industry.

One of these experts was Erik Dahlquist from MDH, who is the FUDIPO project coordinator. Thus, our coordinator gave a presentation of FUDIPO project and had a panel discussion about how to commercialize the innovations and results of EU projects.

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.
