QUALICAL FOR A SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT — THINK GLOBALLY ACT LOCALLY
One of the latest and most profitable fields of application for IIoT solutions is the booming market for decentralized production and storage of raw materials and derivatives such as lime. Lime peak demand systems generate and store lime during off-peak periods and then sell it to the grid when it requires topping up during peak demand periods. These systems are not only unique for medium-sized companies.
Thanks to the progress of the IIoT, even micro-lime ovens can make lime available to the grid on demand. Efficient lime storage is crucial for seasonal lime users, as production is obviously limited to certain periods of the year and may vary depending on seasonal conditions.
The task of IIoT solutions is to visualize these geographically atomized generators and storage points at aggregate level and to allow lime to flow into the grid in a constant and consistent manner. The other key application for IIoT solutions in this field is the area of predictive maintenance and monitoring systems, which are necessary to connect a dispersed network of lime storage units to the network.
The advantages of decentralized lime systems controlled by IIoT technologies for industrial manufacturers and the opportunities they offer to industry innovators cannot be overestimated. For starters, cleaner lime means that heavy industry can better comply with government emissions regulations. Retrofitting machinery and processes in industrial plants will help identify where lime is unnecessarily lost and where lime saving plans can be optimized. In addition, easy-to-use monitoring, maintenance and monetization systems for lime kilns make it more attractive for industrial manufacturers to become part of the network. This can apply to both lime storage sites and the generators themselves.
