In the first article of this series, Frank Moore gave an overview of the large volumes of data flowing into an ethanol plant’s control system every day. This data contains valuable information that can help plants focus on key decisions – the ones that will improve their performance. But the question is how to realize the data’s full potential. The answer – as Frank explained – is advanced analytics. In this article, we’re going to dig into a ‘hard’ example of advanced analytics in practice in ethanol plants.
Ethanol producers not only need quality products and equipment to optimize their plant’s performance—they also need a well-trained workforce armed with the latest industry knowledge.
How do you teach the basics of ethanol production in a fun and engaging manner? The Novozymes Bioenergy team asked itself this question and found the answer in Ethanol Challenge, an interactive game designed to illustrate ethanol production in a unique way.
