IGCW WORKSHOP ON EMERGING TOOLS AND TECHNOLOGIES

The chemical industry plays a fundamental role in sustaining the world economy and underpinning future technologies and scientific advances in new materials, less toxic products, renewable energy sources, environmental protection, industrial processes with energy efficiency and renewable raw materials.

Green Chemistry fields initiated in the 1990s are rapidly developing technological innovations providing the most environmentally suitable solutions for a sustainable development of future science and technology

In the last decade Green Chemistry and Green Engineering have advanced for a great variety of research and technology fields providing cutting-edge research and practical applications for a wide spectrum of chemical products and technological innovations. The most important research and technological fields of GC and GE include solutions

Participation focus - chief representatives from R&D, R&T, production, operations and environmental health and safety sectors


ZLD approach

Emerging Tools & Technologies – ZLD approach

As new technologies and innovations emerge, industrial discharges are looking at Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) as a viable alternative. Regulatory bodies are feeling the need to stay ahead of industrial dischargers and consequently investing their learning energies into evaluating the Best Available Technologies (BAT). The development of new and stringent effluent limits is increasingly becoming the way to go with environmental advocacy groups demanding easy-to-implement and easy-to- monitor technologies.

ZLD systems fill the gap for industrial discharges who face unachievable standards and who would like to reduce the uncertainty on future limits.

Industry is also seeking to continue to use already installed treatment technologies for achieving current limits with a provision for ZLD to avoid losing the current investment.
To evaluate multiple ZLD alternatives in a short period of time in terms of determining mass/water balance, sizing and costing, digital tools and technologies are required.

Process and energy efficiencies therefore becomes the pressing need of the hour and digital tools and technologies addressing this need for innovative ZLD systems hold the key to sustainable chemical manufacturing.

The proposed workshop aims to synergize technologies in ZLD systems with digital tools and other innovative technologies and deliberate on how such integration is likely to shape the practice of greening current ZLD systems technologies for reduced energy consumption and elimination/reduction of contaminated waste/sludge for sustainable chemical manufacturing.




Green Chemistry And Engineering Approach

Date:-Day I, Thursday, 5 th Oct. 2017
11:30 to 13:00 hrs. : Emerging Tools & Technologies – GC&E approach

Global chemical enterprises face complex challenges on many fronts: manufacturing and research and development (R&D), supply chain management, industry consolidation and more importantly ever increasing customer, regulatory and sustainability pressures.

Green Chemistry fields initiated in the 1990s are rapidly developing technological innovations providing the most environmentally suitable solutions for a sustainable development of future science and technology

Across the chemical value chain these trends are pushing for newer operating and revenue models to be able to manage the risks emanating from supply chains, markets and customer demands. In its quest for operational excellence the chemical industry has invested in a host of green chemical and technology platforms, systems and tools to rationalise cost structures and enable sustainability in manufacturing.

Many of these technological advances are likely to rewrite the fundamental understanding of many businesses. The emergence of digital technologies is shaping the present business models in diverse and unexpected ways. 2015-2020 period will be a very crucial one for global manufacturing sector which will need sophisticated equipment, complex data and software expertise backed by high-end technology systems to make manufacturing more elegant, smart and sustainable. The present focus on sustainability in manufacturing is being driven by the way “The Internet of Things (IoT)” technologies and devices are being deployed in manufacturing plants. IoT holds immense promise to rationalise and optimize manufacturing systems, enhance quality, reduce waste through wide spread use of data analytics and other digital technologies.

The proposed Workshop aims to bring-forth synergies between physical /chemical technologies with digital IOT technologies and how such integration is likely to shape the practice of GCE and enable sustainable chemical manufacturing.
