Industry 5.0

Today, there is no simple general connection between process and external users in different mills, which constitutes an obstacle to the development of new monitoring applications. In the Industry 5.0 project, new technology will be evaluated in various sub-steps in collaboration with the project's partners.

The goal of the two-year project Industry 5.0 is to contribute to streamlining various processes, which leads to increased resource efficiency and reduced energy consumption. Process monitoring provides more efficient use of raw materials with fewer complaints and less waste as a result.

PulpEye will initially test the technology in two pilot plants at RISE Processum, the HTL pilot and the BioBo bioreactor. In the future, the process technologies will be scaled up and then both new online technology and the possibility of remote monitoring will be needed. NIR technology used in the pulp and paper industry will be applied to completely new areas of use such as the production of bio-oils and for fermentation processes.

The project will visualize large amounts of process data outside the mill in a safe and efficient way. It will also develop a demonstrator where process tools will help staff to be able to make effective decisions.

The results from the project will be tools and working methods that provide opportunities to effectively remotely monitor and control factories globally. More efficient measurement methods must also be developed that provide better control, which leads to energy savings.
