A field device manufacturer's take on Industry 4.0


There is a lot of hype surrounding Industry 4.0. While virtually everyone has something to say on the subject, many often do not see the big picture. Modern technology can already easily "deliver" Industry 4.0. However, the large volumes of data – known as big data – also need to be crunched into something useful for the processing industry. IDM sat down with Endress + Hauser, one of the world's leading specialists for measurement and automation technology, and asked it about its take on Industry 4.0.

The Swiss family-run company not only provides measuring technology for level, pressure, temperature, flow or analysis, along with related services and solutions, it also manages the processes associated with measuring technology and automation – irrespective of the automation platforms and providers. "Many parts of the Industry 4.0 puzzle have been on the market for years.

First bioplastic made from surplus whey



The European LIFE + WHEYPACK project was established to show that a new packaging for dairy products can be made from 100% biodegradable materials, which fulfil the functions of product protection, are economically viable and are also able to reduce the environmental impact generated.

Specifically, the material used in LIFE + WHEYPACK is polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB), obtained by a fermentation bioprocess of whey surplus from cheese making.

The LIFE + WHEYPACK project has a budget of over €1.1m, of which the European Union through the “Life +” program will provide a total of €584,888. The transnational project between Spain and Portugal is coordinated by the Spanish AINIA technology center and counts on the participation of the cheese making industry Central Quesera Montesinos (Spain), the technology center AIMPLAS (Spain) and the packaging company EMBALNOR (Portugal), forming a multidisciplinary team with wide experience in food technology and production, bioprocess technologies, polymer technology and food packaging manufacturing. ...
