Steam is a critical part of many process manufacturing processes and the energy to produce it can be a significant source of operational costs. I recently caught up with process automation hall-of-fame member Greg McMillan and Emerson’s Scott Pettigrew at the Emerson Exchange conference here in Austin. Greg and Stan Weiner had recently interviewed Scott […]

I caught up last week with Emerson’s Al Novak. You may recall Al from some of our alternative fuels-related posts. He mentioned that they had another Alternative Fuels and Energy Summit in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The focus of this summit was on using “biomass” feed stocks and using biochemical, thermochemical, or combustion technologies to convert the […]
