What is the future for Downstream Automation?


It is predicted that technology driven, autonomous, remote operations can reduce inspection and maintenance costs by 25% and lower employee costs by 20%.

As downstream operators continue to focus their efforts on efficiency, productivity, reliability, and safety throughout their processing and refinery operations, they must achieve digital transformation at speed.

It is clear that implementing emerging technology can enable chemical & petrochemical manufacturers to develop smart, digitally connected assets and become an automated, data-driven operation.

Join us this November to discover how manufacturing, automation, and digitalization specialists from leading operators, technology suppliers and solutions providers are proactively adapting their approaches to digitally improve their chemical and processing plants.
