Our colleague Moksadur Rahman presents his licentiate defence next 30th October

Next 30th October is an important day for FUDIPO, as our colleague Moksadur Rahman, who has been intensively working on the project will present his licentiate defence in Energy and environmental engineering based on the work done. The title of this defence is “Towards a learning system for process and energy industry” and is focused on the use of different process models, soft-sensors and optimization techniques to improve the control, diagnostics and decision support for the process and energy industry. Thereby, a generic architecture for optimal control, diagnostics and decision support system, referred to as a learning system, is proposed in his research.

We wish him the best for this day!

FUDIPO at Dechema event in Frankfurt, 18th October

On 18th October (2018), the consortiums participating the COCOP, CoPro, FUDIPO and MONSOON projects celebrated a workshop in Frankfurt, in DECHEMA facilities. The event, which was titled “Digitized Operations for Sustainable Process Industries”, was a complete success and succeeded in bringing interested parties to it. Both the Project Officer Angelica Marino and the External Advisor also joined the event. During the sessions, the four participating projects explained how they were tackling the industry needs and which digital solutions they were building. Moreover, the time between sessions allowed for a great exchange of impressions and knowledge between the different participants, and also with the other entities that attended the event. Lastly, a panel named “Full digitalization of process operations – chances and challenges” took place. This panel was participated by Martin Winter (chair of SPIRE Digital Working group, A. SPIRE), Jane Arnold (Head of Global Process Control Technology, Covestro), Manuel Remelhe (Technology Senior Expert, BAYER AG) and André Augé (Statistical and data processing Manager, Rio Tinto / European Aluminium). During this panel, the experts presented their view on the future of the digitalisation of the industry and the public was able to raise questions and generate very interesting debates.

Some presentations by FUDIPO as the one of Moksadur Rahman titled “Advanced Control of Continuous Pulp Digesters” took place presenting results about specific study case.
