FEATURED CONTENT

  • The City of Riverside PUD discusses how they are quantifying ROI and also the ever-evolving digital transformation taking place in the water industry, 

  • In this special report from Water Finance & Management and data management solutions provider OSIsoft, now part of AVEVA, we bring you some perspective on how the U.S. water utility sector has evolved – and continues to evolve – in its use and management of data.

  • Every industry is grappling with the rise of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). The increasing availability of low-cost sensors and the development of new analytical tools for making use of the data they produce is driving organizational change across a diverse range of industries. But in a broader landscape being transformed by data, water utilities face their own unique challenges in adopting digital transformation strategies.

  • The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) is constantly preparing for an array of challenges ranging from droughts, wildfires, and earthquakes to aging pipes to optimizing operations such as pumps, water loss, and water quality treatment. Water utilities like LADWP are also looking for ways to improve customer service while safeguarding water storage and delivery systems.

  • All pulp and paper operations can benefit from opportunities to improve through digitalization in similar areas: process productivity, energy efficiency, sustainability, quality assurance, asset health, and the connected supply chain. The difficulty is that actionable items from any of these categories that would make the biggest difference at a facility can differ widely across companies, and even across individual mills within a company.

  • As the demand for construction materials and other wood-based products continues to grow, forestry companies have a big opportunity to boost their bottom lines. From harvesting trees to the final products coming out of sawmills, significant operational improvements are available to those who invest in the appropriate technology.

  • The White House Utility District (WHUD) is the largest water utility in Tennessee by geography, serving consumers and businesses just north of Nashville. Since it started making better use of its sensor-based data using state-of-the-art IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) technologies in 2016, its infrastructure leakage index (ILI) decreased from 1.49 to 0.76. In this episode we talk about pressure management, leaks, and I&I with those who made the changes to improve their operation.

  • Rapidly changing market conditions are putting more pressure than ever on pulp and paper manufacturing operations to remain competitive.

  • Boosting productivity is always on the minds of those who run forest and paper manufacturing operations. However, many companies work toward that goal with manual tools that are both time-consuming and don’t provide the most up-to-date information that is critical to making impactful changes. 

  • Optimizing sustainability is paramount for forest and paper manufacturers, which are striving to keep production costs to a minimum, meet strict regulatory mandates, and fight outdated public perceptions that paint them as an enemy of the environment.

  • IoT (IIoT, Internet of Everything, Enterprise IoT) may well be among the top agenda items for executives in industries spanning from manufacturing to health care to process industries.

  • A pulp and paper factory is made up of equipment, processes, and people, all of which must work together to drive efficiencies across the production line.

  • Every pulp and paper mill faces the same challenge: optimizing production at the lowest possible cost. Decisions, such as rationalizing grade structures and enabling the supply chain to respond to shorter product life cycles, can have a critical impact on the bottom line. It can also mean the difference between efficient operations or shutting their doors.

  • The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to reduce energy consumption, transform supply chains and, in general, improve the quality of life for billions of people.

  • WestRock’s paper mills are scattered all across the globe and are continually producing paper and packaging goods for businesses and consumers alike.

  • Klabin, founded in 1899, is Brazil’s largest producer and exporter of paper products and pulp.

  • As the world digitized, the news was filled with projected declines in paper consumption and subsequent revenue.

  • The pulp and paper production process extends far beyond what consumers see. Raw materials move through complex processes, leveraging defined recipes and a variety of production assets.

  • The pulp and paper industry is changing. With a graphic paper demand declining worldwide, it’s easy to think that the entire industry is in decline as well.

  • Clearwater Paper is the largest provider of private label tissue to retail grocery chains in the United States and a manufacturer of bleached paperboard. With seven manufacturing sites, over 10 paper machines, over 50 tissue converting lines, and pulp mills, recovery, and power boilers, real-time operational intelligence is critical to the company’s success.

  • From toilet paper to consumer products packaging, and everything in between, the beginning of the pandemic in the first quarter of 2020 sparked a dramatic shift in demand toward at-home products. While pulp and paper manufacturers rapidly adapted to meet those changing needs, the market is expected to remain fluid for the foreseeable future.

  • The underlying technology for digitalization has been applied in the paper products industry for more than 30 years. Large, highly automated mills have matured at using operations data to create value by providing the mechanisms to make data-driven decisions for everyone from operators to executives.

  • A pulp and paper factory is made up of equipment, processes, and people, all of which must work together to drive efficiencies across the production line. As one of Europe’s largest pulp and paper factories, Mondi Štětí is continually seeking ways to make better, faster decisions—while minimizing environmental impact and maintaining consistent quality. For 19 years, Mondi has used the PI System to gather real-time intelligence to give people the visibility they need to optimize equipment and processes. As the factory has expanded, Mondi’s journey with the PI System has grown, putting the company on the path to reaching lofty production goals.

  • In an uncertain market, pulp and paper mills must enlist an ecosystem of in-house talent, digital technologies, and service providers to optimize critical assets while preventing catastrophic failures. One such asset is the recovery boiler. With the combination of the PI System™ and Clyde Industries’ Smart Clean solution, mills are extracting additional value from recovery boilers, particularly in the cleaning process.
