Marco Waas, Director R&D and Technology Industrial Chemicals at Nouryon said: “Working with start-ups like Semiotic Labs allows us to tap into novel technologies that can provide significant benefits. Our customers rely on us for a reliable supply of essential raw materials and this predictive maintenance solution can greatly help improve the performance of our plants, while decreasing cost.”
Simon Jagers, Founder at Semiotic Labs added: “Since the Imagine Chemistry challenge in 2018, we have been working together on a pilot program to test and improve our technology. I am very pleased to see it making a difference in real-life production settings and look forward to the further rollout in partnership with Nouryon.”
Nouryon and Semiotic Labs will also look at ways to generate more value from waveform analysis by developing features that will enable significant reductions in CO2 emissions. The first large-scale implementations are planned for early 2020.
