Pattern Industrial Water 4.0

DynaWater4.0 – Dynamic value creation networks through digital collaboration between industrial water management and production

Initial situation

  • Automation, networking and digital technologies are transformation drivers of process water treatment
  • Coordination of production processes and process water treatment are necessary
  • Process water treatment is often environmentally relevant and constitutes a bottleneck
  • Lack of process water forecasting tools allows only situational management of process water treatment

Project objectives

  • Dynamic networking of industrial water management or process water treatment and industrial production using models and CPS (cyber-physical systems), sensor networks / data platforms and components (measurement-control-rules (MSR) & water technology)

Innovative process approaches

  • Linking production planning with production and process water treatment

Current work

  • Process characterization and classification
  • Product development for the networking of water treatment and production
  • Modeling of water treatment, e.g. with preparation of a model for the pH-prediction of hydrofluoric acid and nitric acid as well as pre-calculation of the needed for neutralization agent amount
  • Modeling of production process

Outlook

  • Installation of available MSR technology and linking / networking with modeling
  • Demonstration at model locations
  • Development of integration concepts for the digitization of water treatment
