‘Digital Fertilizer’

Toyo Engineering Corp. (Toyo; Chiba, Japan; www.toyo-eng.co.jp) has developed and launched the first commercial application of its “Digital Fertilizer” technology — an internet of things (IoT) system that contributes to improving operating rates and plant profitability by continuously monitoring and analyzing plant operations and key performance indicators (KPls) of the plant. The system has been applied in a 2,750-ton/d urea plant owned and operated by PT Pupuk Sriwidjaja Palembang in Palembang in South Sumatra, Indonesia as a subsidiary of the state-owned
Indonesian fertilizer company, PT Pupuk Indonesia.

  In December 2016, Toyo and General Electric Co. (GE; Boston, Mass.; www.ge.com) signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for a joint project to explore digital solutions for the fertilizer and petrochemicals industries. Under the MoU, Toyo and GE jointly developed Digital Fertilizer on GE Predix, which is a unique cloud-based platform built exclusively for industry by using Toyo’s expertise in processes and plant operations as licensor of urea synthesis and granulation technologies and as engineering procurement and construction (EPC) contractor of fertilizer and petrochemical plants. System integration of Digital Fertilizer on Predix was conducted by NEC Corp. (NEC; Tokyo; www.nec.com), which has entered into a comprehensive alliance with GE.
