…the industry-leading online platform for refiners and technology providers from across Europe to discuss the challenges in overcoming COVID-19.

Emerson’s Marcelo Carugo will present on November 18 as part of the ERTC Digitalisation Technologies technical stream. His session, Digital Innovations in refinery safety in a Post-COVID 19 environment, will address:

  • Improving safety of our personnel and plants is stressed out in the post-COVID-19 times
  • Adapting with reduced crews and social distancing.
  • Incorporating digital innovations in plant management to achieve higher levels of occupational safety and reduced risks of containment loss

Refineries around the globe are having to cope with this global pandemic and rethink their work processes and accessibility to people and information. Digitalization can help by adding continuous monitoring where periodic manual monitoring was done.
