Optimizing your chemical process (Whitepaper)


Whether you’re responsible for running a chemical plant, part of the engineering team that keeps it up and running, or you oversee the commercial aspects of its wider business, one thing is increasingly certain. You need to digitalize sooner or later.

Most chemical producers recognize digitalization is the key to far exceeding any efficiency gains already achieved by adding to, replacing or redesigning the mechanical aspects of their operation.

What’s more, all plants already gather data from across their process to one degree or another. Data that’s the ideal foundation for optimization, if only it could be used to its full potential rather than for just monitoring KPIs and troubleshooting.

What’s getting in the way? The day to day. The reality of operations present various challenges that limit the use of data to looking at well-known metrics and trends. Anything more takes people, time and money that can be hard to find or justify.

New technologies, deployed in the right way, mean there’s no longer the need to.

Unlock the potential in your data.

You can achieve next-level optimization now. You can do it without taking up your team’s valuable time. You could even free more of it up. And there’s a good chance you’ve already got what’s needed to get started.

Machine learning, a type of artificial intelligence, deployed to your plant data offers a way to maximize reliability, optimize efficiency and so profitability, while maintaining your process safety.

A partner that can learn your process, scour your historic and real-time data, and continually spot and recommend ways to optimize and avoid inefficiencies or disruptions.

Forecasts suggest such technologies could be worth USD 17.2 billion to manufacturing, including chemical production, by 2025.1 And they’re expected to boost gross value added (GVA)2 by almost USD 14 trillion by 2035.3

One producer used machine learning algorithms to increase phenol production by over 5,500 tons a year – or USD 5.5 million in value*. What could these technologies do for you?

Take the first step with our free white paper.

If exploring these technologies is new to you, rest assured. They don’t need to be complex or intimidating – but they can be very liberating for your teams and operation.

Navigance can help guide you through it, from scoping out the right approach to make better use of data and deliver the value you need. So we’ve created a white paper to help you get started.

It covers the potential of technologies like machine learning for the industry as a whole and operations like yours. It explains how you can realize the value of digitalization without using lots of in-house resource.

Discover how you can move from advanced analysis of your plant data to real-time recommendations you can act on fast to optimize with confidence. And how to be up and running within weeks, backed by ongoing support from a partner with deep-rooted experience in your sector and these game-changing technologies.
