Meeting sustainability goals with the process digital twin

On-Demand Webinar

Process industries are rapidly reorganizing around goals for sustainability and decarbonization, but the path forward is uncertain. Can energy management and process improvements make brownfield plants sustainable? How can companies evaluate and optimize the process technologies that will support the massive greenfield investments necessary for decarbonization?

In this webinar, Peter Reynolds, principal analyst at ARC Advisory Group, will discuss the market and technology trends affecting the future of the chemicals and oil and gas industries, and how process simulation shapes projects to meet sustainability goals. Then, Dr Ian Willetts from AVEVA will showcase examples of the ways forward-thinking companies are addressing those challenges with innovative uses of the process digital twin.

Watch this webinar to see how:

  • Market trends towards renewables, circular chemicals, and clean hydrogen affect the process industries
  • Technology trends like online optimization and AI-infused simulation enable innovative approaches
  • Process simulation plays a growing role across the project lifecycle, from design evaluation to predictive asset optimization
