The EU-funded R&D project “Real-time Monitoring and Optimization of Resource Efficiency in Integrated Processing Plants” (MORE) aimed at monitoring and improving resource efficiency during the daily operations of large integrated chemical production plants by
MORE defined principles for the definition of real-time Resource Efficiency Indicators (REIs) and proposed a number of indicators for integrated chemical plants that can be efficiently used to steer daily operations. The defined indicators are computed based on real-time data, available from monitoring and control systems, including innovative analytical measurements. As the MORE project focused on large integrated chemical and petrochemical plants with many interconnected units, the real-time REIs and decision support tools were developed specifically for this domain. In addition to addressing the chemical industry, the ambition of the MORE project was to transfer real-time resource efficiency indicators to different sectors of the process industry.
