On 28th April 2021, we will present at the fifth technical online session of the SCIF Discussion Club. This online event is focused on the implementation of digital technologies in chemical plants and experience sharing from industry examples.Read More
In our last post, we looked at how economic downturn and its effect on the chemical industry is driving the need to optimize its processes.
In this continuation, we consider two other trends that are doing the same – and accelerating. Plus, how digital tools can help get ahead of those trends.Read More
In chemical manufacturing, the need to find ways to optimize is growing like never before. While it might still seem like a nice-to-have today, emerging and accelerating trends in the industry and other external factors will mean it’s increasingly a necessity.
Here, we focus on some of the most...Read More
We would like to continue sharing highlights from extensive Navigance research conducted with people in various roles across the chemical manufacturing sector. Now we focus on the journey of digitalization in chemical plants.
In our last article, we summarized the realities of their day-to-day...Read More
Over the past few months, Navigance has been talking extensively with professionals across chemical manufacturing – especially those with continuous processes – to capture the realities of their daily plant operations, their needs and goals, and any overarching trends affecting them.
In this article, we explore the role, common uses and limitations of the first principle approach to chemical process modelling. And we contrast this with the advantages and disadvantages of using empirical or statistical models.
We then look at how taking the first steps into new, intelligent...Read More
AI-enabled data analysis unlocks hidden process optimization potential, effortlessly and without tying up your resources. Our free white paper reveals where to start.
Whether you’re responsible for operating a chemical plant, part of the engineering team that keeps it up and running, or you...Read More
Recently, Nitrogen+Syngas published an article about the growing importance of technical services for chemical producers in their May-June 2020 issue. The article explains which new digital tools and services are available and how data-driven chemical process optimization by Navigance delivers...Read More
Smart use of your plant’s data can take process efficiency to a higher level. Hybrid models driven by artificial intelligence deliver the best results for the least effort. And you don’t need a data science degree to enjoy them.Read More
