Open Process Automation PoC in the Chemical Industry

January 7, 2020

As we enter 2020, it's exciting to think about what technology trends will be gaining traction across the process industries. 2019 was a great year for technology innovation across the industry, so I expect (and hope) we'll be seeing things pick up where they left off on the technology front. I had the privilege of attending the NAMUR annual general meeting late last year in Bad Neuenahr, Germany (NAMUR is a leading international association of automation technology users in process industries). I left this event feeling very enthusiastic about what's to come in the new decade.

The modern world is built on chemicals, be it the medicines we use, or cleaning fluids, crop protection products, or the raw materials for everything from laptops and mobile phones to clothes and furniture. Across all, we have created an entire modern society with chemicals, and, as a result, constantly stretched the size of the world population we can feed, clothe and shelter.

Everyone is very familiar with the phrase when buying a house: All that really matters are three things - location, location, and location. This same principle applies to extractables and leachables chemistry analysis – the three things that truly matter are identification, identification, and identification. The greatest growth in the past ten years in demonstrating the safety of medical devices and container closure systems for drugs has been using analytical chemistry to determine what chemicals can leach from the device and what the patient is exposed to during its intended use.
