Our MDH colleagues Moksadur Rahman Anders Avelin and Konstantinos Kyprianidis have recently made a publication titled “An approach for feedforward model predictive control of Continuous Pulp Digesters” in Processes. You can access to the full paper in the following link: https://lnkd.in/dFjZhNh
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.

Our colleagues Tomas Olsson and Mats Tallfors from RISE-SICS presented an example of FUDIPO application to the paper industry at Ekmandagarna 2019 in Stockholm.

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.
Two SPIRE workshops will take place on the 1st and 2nd of October 2018 at Brussels:
– “Towards Industry 4.0: Digital Technologies in Process Industry”, which intends to explore different digitalisation related sub-topics, such as plant and process control, process design, artificial intelligence and big data, platforms for industrial symbiosis, digital skills, etc. SPIRE projects will give some presentations, as well as experts in the fields.
– Stakeholder workshop: “Sustainable Process Industry Strategy Towards 2050”, which aims to review and validate the SPIRE 2050 Vision, establish collaborative agreements with the Member States and other contractual public-private partnerships (cPPPs), and provide the place to develop the SPIRE 2050 Roadmap.
Idener, on behalf of FUDIPO, will attend this event and will hang a poster about the project, solving doubts and giving information to interested people.
The workshop presents the EU perspective on digital operations in process industries and focuses on plant-wide monitoring and control of data-intensive processes. Also, a networking space is planned.
The event is free-registration but the number of participants is limited. More info soon.

Last 19 September 2017 the Process Industry Conference, SPIRE mid-term policy event took place in Brussels, with the relevant stakeholders for the European Process Industry, including a session for a brief presentation of SPIRE projects on this topic, as FUDIPO, Monsoon, ProPat, etc.
We presented our main goals and business opportunities (see the presentation here) and had the opportunity to meet with other project representatives from COCOP and MORSE, and showed three posters about the project overview, the case studies and the modelling approach (have a look on the full view of posters here)
