The Process Automation Podcast, launched by ABB, explores the role of automation, electrification and digitalization in supporting industries that provide the energy, materials and commodities essential for everyday lives.
The podcast discusses how technologies central to modern society are increasingly being put to work to support a cleaner future, driven by the urgency of ensuring a sustainable path for the growing populaption of the planet.
“Infrastructures that bring us energy, power, water, data and the supply of materials that make up the goods we use and consume every day, are some of the largest systems in the world,” said Peter Terwiesch, President, ABB Process Automation Business Area. “They are also among the most complex ones. Keeping these running 24/7, with an absolute minimum of interruptions – that is what process automation does.”
Over the course of the series, the Process Automation Podcast will explore industries and themes such as energy and hydrocarbons, mining and minerals, hydrogen, emissions monitoring, shipping, water. The podcast is hosted by Fran Scott, a presenter and science content producer at the Royal Institution, she best known for her work with the BBC and Channel 4.
