Reducing inspection by using soft sensors
In many organizations, a lot of process data is captured automatically from sensors & transmitters. Those process data can often be used to predict quality characteristics of the final product. In this presentation you will learn how we can use process measurements to predict the result of a final inspection test resulting in lower inspection cost and faster learning on the process.
• What is a soft sensor?
• Advantages of soft sensors
• Steps in building a soft sensor
• Application example: The tensile strength lab test

Eastman in the Circular Economy: Urgent Problem, Transformative Solutions
We are in the middle of a plastic waste crisis, perpetuated by a global pandemic. The limitations of traditional recycling technologies and its economic challenges present significant roadblocks in tackling this problem. To truly transform into a global circular economy for plastics, the acceptance and implementation of molecular recycling technologies is essential. While there is no single solution to solve this growing crisis nor is any single company or industry alone able to fully address, there are innovations and technologies like Eastman’s material-to-material molecular recycling technologies to help.
