Perceptive Engineering is delighted to be part of a consortium of partners supported by the BEIS Industrial Energy Efficiency Accelerator (IEEA) to develop and implement a novel approach to reducing energy usage within the paper and pulp industry.
‘Integrated advanced process control technology for the pulp, paper and board sector’ is one of the innovative projects selected by the BEIS IEEA to reduce the UK carbon emissions. In line with the UK’s net zero carbon target by 2050, this project seeks to demonstrate the energy savings that can be achieved in the drying section of paper mills.
The harsh environment of a paper mill potentially reduces the reliability of critical process measurements, thereby limiting the ability to respond promptly to changes in operating conditions without potentially introducing disturbances to production.
The project will combine data from field instrumentation, equipment parameters, advanced process control (APC) techniques and simulation to create a digital twin of the real process. This novel ‘Simulation Aided Enhanced Advanced Process Control’ methodology will drive superior process optimisation leading to substantial energy savings.
This integrated advanced process control (APC) technology project for the pulp, paper and board sector is being led by The Paper Industry Technical Association (PITA) along with industrial partners Perceptive Engineering, CF Procsim, AutomationX and Smurfit Kappa Townsend Hook Mill in Kent.
