Perspectives for renewable energy sector

For at least 150 years, human activity has been the primary responsible for emissions of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.     The imminent threat of climate change has been pushing the need for energy transition by the industrial sector. Since the Kyoto protocol, industries have been developing roadmaps for a more sustainable operation with greater control over carbon emissions balanced with asset performance. Later, the Paris Agreement defined the need to contain global temperature by 2 degrees Celsius annually. And, in 2021, the COP26 (The United Nations Conference on Climate Change) reiterated the need for effective actions with [...]

Benefits of Digital Twin in the process industry

A process industry is one that, from different raw materials, combines and transforms materials into new products. To carry out this process, thermal or chemical transformations usually occur, resulting in a final product that cannot be separated into its initial ingredients. For the finished product to be of high quality, the production process must be meticulously controlled step by step. Because of all the complexity in these industries, it is common to implement technologies that help control the operation, such as Digital Twin for exemple. In this article you will learn about the main problems that happen in the [...]
