Feeding the World

Agricultural Processing

Turning Crops into Foodstuffs, BioFuels & BioPlastics

As global population expands, so does the importance of efficient agricultural production and processing. NovaTech is proud to provide Process Control Solutions to companies that feed the world’s population.

The Solution

Agricultural Processing companies like ADM and Cargill must achieve highly efficient plant operations to maximize yields while minimizing environmental impact. The industry has grown impressively over the past few decades, and NovaTech helps many of the largest facilities reach their continuously evolving efficiency and sustainability goals. Process engineers rely on the NovaTech D/3 Distributed Control System (DCS) to deliver rock solid performance with exceptional computing horsepower, providing flexibility for rapid product development and agile manufacturing, and ensuring operator safety under all conditions. Plant managers track performance with Process Analytics to measure, analyze and manage assets from individual pieces of equipment to process areas, production facilities, and global enterprise. D/3-powered facilities produce more product per operator, experience minimal downtime, and deliver high quality products on time, including: Proteins, Sweeteners, Brans, Supplements, Cocoa, Chocolates, Vegetable Oils, Fats, Bioplastic Precursors, and Pharmaceutical Intermediates.
