WBF Names Keynote Speakers For Process Conference

World Batch Forum (WBF) has announced the keynote speakers for the 2010 North American Make-2-Profit Conference, set to be held on 24-26 May at the University of Texas. WBF has invited experts in green process optimisation and secure practices to present at the event, which will also offer curriculum surrounding procedural control, S88, S95 and the integration of enterprise systems with control systems.

Visitors to the conference will hear from international keynotes Dr Thomas F Edgar and Dr J Patrick Kennedy, as well as tutorials and sessions designed to match experts with professionals. Edgar will open the conference with his presentation entitled 'Energy Efficiency, Smart Grids and Process Control', which is aimed at industrial energy users and incorporates the newly coined term of 'negawatts' (increased production efficiencies, reduction of fossil fuels, caps on or carbon tax).

Provision of real-time optimisation examples to minimise plant energy consumption will be shared along with the dynamic elements of wind power and power production. From time-of-day power pricing to increase usage of thermal and other energy storage systems, attendees will learn where, why and how these systems can be implemented.

In his presentation, Kennedy will share insights into green process efficiency. The conference will have a vendor showcase where equipment and software suppliers and system integrators can share their messages and products with a group of end users. Control's annual Process Automation Hall of Fame Dinner and Awards, sponsored by Yokogawa, will be held in conjunction with the WBF conference.
