AI platform Digital management of “smart factories”
Technologies such as information visualization, report automation, remote process monitoring etc. are employed in accordance with three major information principles, namely visibility, manageability, and controllability, in the integration of the production and management systems of each business establishment within the group. An intelligent platform framework is developed creating substantial benefits, from safety monitoring, energy saving and carbon reduction, predictive maintenance and processes, to materials quality control. All these allow precise decision-making and the enforcement of our sustainable development agenda.
Regular AI training such as LCY AI School, LCY AI Competition is offered frontline site workers, encouraging them to contemplate an “intelligent management system” to achieve “intelligent manufacturing” as the ultimate goal.
Successful predictive modeling for energy consumption
Using deep learning algorithms and machine learning algorithms, we follow algorithms for big data to design the most effective energy saving and consumption reducing systems. For instance, we have developed an optimal “predictive model for the energy consumption of chiller units,” with calculations of parameters such as consumption, electric current, temperature, and flow performed. This model not only enables electrical load balancing between chiller units and cooling towers but also provides recommended values on operation. Energy consumption is minimized, and the frequency of unscheduled shutdowns during the process lowered, resulting in a double win in reduced power consumption and smooth production.
From the upstream sector of the industry, we have established an R&D center according to the outlook for “a green technology company with the innovator’s DNA,” to implement sustainability initiatives in the chemical sector, with a view to becoming “a green technology company with the innovator’s DNA.” We mitigate life cycle impacts by R&D innovation, providing products with a high added value or green attributes to clients, as we chart a path toward a total solution with zero liquid discharge (ZLD).
