Chemometrics as Management Tool

The big advantage of chemometrics is its ability to optimise the whole of production, not just component processes. Many PIL [Federation of Norwegian Process Industries] companies, large and small, have put the system to use, and more and more today are evaluating the possibility of using their own operating data to make tools for better process management. Chemometric methods can also be employed in other areas of complex relations. The systems often takes the name of the discipline, as for instance, biometry, pharmametry, econometric and so on.

Industrial Research Saves Millions

Norsk Hydro's Research Centre in Porsgrunn has put together a research community that is an international leader in its special field. THe company has achieved good results at several of its plants with the help of chemometrics.

By chemometrics they looked for the cause of great variations in the yield of a given production process. They found a parameter that explained the variations, which because of measuring techniques had eluded routine registration. Once this parameter was brought under control, the yield increased by 30%, which meant tens of millions of NOK in improved productivity. Pollutin emissions were reduced accordingly.

The Research Centre has also been honoured for its work. Its division manager, Frode Brakstad, and Professor Olav Kvalheim of the University of Bergen were awarded Norway's Research Council's prize in 1996 for excellent industrial utilization of basic research. The award winners demonstrated by their work the potential of chemometrics in several complicated industrial processes.
