This year the organizing commitee has selected the below listed themes/topics:
Share your goals, strategies, technologies and success stories that address critical sustainability issues in the petrochemical industry, including improvement in energy efficiency, reduction of air emissions (especially GHG emissions), minimization of water use/maximization of water reuse, and elimination of plastic waste.
Big Data analytics can provide insights to get the best Overall Asset Effectiveness (OAE). The potential value from large and diverse data streams if used to its full potential can maximize production and profitability such as effective business intelligence interface and synergistic use of machine learning and models for descriptive, predictive, prescriptive and diagnostic applications. Help operators and producers go beyond the data sets.
In the aftermath of chemical disasters, it's common to find precursors, missed signals, and dismissed alerts that, if recognized and managed properly, could have resulted in the event being averted. Share practical approaches to diligence, case studies and lessons learnt involving ethylene-specific hazards.
As demand for plastics continue to rise and production targets get tighter, how do you improve reliability and maximize process yield? Help operators decrease energy costs, achieve yields and optimise pressure points.
Being lean in Ethylene requires flexibility and integrated end-to-end solutions to optimise plant assets including yield improvement, production efficiencies and energy intensity reduction. Share your suggested models of strategy towards effective plant optimization, including reports of implemented projects that have increased profitability and enhanced competitiveness.
