Aluminium smelter process optimization through the European Monsoon project
Wednesday 22nd May 17:00 - 17:20
Monsoon is an European project (European Union’s Horizon 2020), it means MOdel based coNtrol framework for Site-wide OptimizatiON of data-intensive processes. A lot of technical data is available for analytics in an aluminium smelter. During the project a cross sectorial data lab has been implemented to build predictive functions based on big data analytics tools to optimize green anode production and reduction processes. An operation platform has been developed in a French smelter (Aluminium Dunkerque). The speech will focus on data management, predictive functions developed and implemented during the project.
Speaker: André Augé, Senior Data Scientist at Rio Tinto
André Augé holds an M.Sc degree in Chemistry engineering from Chimie Paris Tech and is also graduated in Statistics and Data Science. He has been working in aluminium industry for 33 years in R&D and industrial sites. He is now in charge of statistical studies and follow-up of the Rio Tinto smelters. André Augé leads the Rio Tinto part of the Monsoon project.
