HYDROPTICS will develop and apply advanced photonic components as key enabling technologies for optimizing most critical steps in oil production as well as to control downstream processing routines for final mineral oil product development.

In this regard process water has been identified as a key product of high relevance both in upstream and downstream process monitoring. It will also elaborate how data provided by these advanced sensors can be combined with readily available process data, and a digital twin of the process apparatus to gain in-depth process understanding.

Digitalisation of process data, data fusion, machine learning and artificial intelligence shall enable a new level of process optimization yielding high and constant product quality despite fluctuating process conditions.
