Optimising logistics in the chemicals sector
Safe and reliable logistics systems linking manufacturing and consumption sites (usually separated) are the most important aspects of the chemical industry. Managing the supply chain is a major challenge. The EU-funded TankSensor project is developing an Internet of things nano sensor and software solution for fill-level monitoring of industrial tanks. It’s a non-invasive, easy to install, plug and play device that can work for liquids, solids, gases and dangerous chemicals. Targeting industrial sites, chemical suppliers and container manufacturers, the project is using its proprietary strain nano sensor to continuously monitor the fill level of any container. It has been validated in tests with industrial chemical suppliers and has generated their strong interest. The project will now provide necessary resources to extend the action plan to more networks and businesses.
