Special Session S10. Industry 4.0 and the future of chemical engineering (Invited talks only)

The concept of Industrie 4.0 is expected to bring about revolution in chemical manufacturing. It is about exploitation of information technology but in a way different from the current relationship between chemical plants and information technology. Industrie 4.0 advocates the introduction of IoT and development of cyber-physical systems. Through analysis of big data from a process and the market using a powerful data processing technology, we can foresee the change in the status of the factory and the market, and derive the best operating strategy. This session discusses the current status, future and the issues related to Industrie 4.0 for chemical industry.
