Stamicarbon and Sprana have signed a technology cooperation agreement to co-develop process analysis technology (PAT) solutions for nitrogen industry processes.
The cooperation between the companies will aim to bring the innovations of Industry 4.0 in the nitrogen fertilizer industry and, in particular, the urea process.
PAT provides the ability to optimize fertilizer production processes through real-time process scanning and monitoring techniques, such as the Stami Digital Process Monitor (SDPM). PAT with SDPM will allow plant operators to optimize the production process.
Early developments will focus on Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF)/AdBlue online analysis® and a urea solution. These quality assurance instruments will enable nitrogen fertilizer manufacturing organizations to reduce energy consumption, CO2 emissions and consumption of raw materials to improve OPEX.
