The Power of Real-Time Costing

In most operating environments, operators and shift supervisors are focused on their individual operating parameters: keeping the line running and monitoring deviations in selected indicators. In most cases, they have no understanding of the dollar value of the various operating decisions they make and the knock-on impact their decisions may have through the value chain; whether in terms of total added cost or variance in usages.

Nanocellulose in the Formulation of Emulsions and Formulation-Composition Maps

Cellulose nanofibrils (CNF) and naocrystals (CNC) are high aspect nanomaterials that can form structured networks. Taking advantage of this property, I will introduce novel approaches to wood deconstruction for the development of CNF and CNC. They mainly consist of microemulsions with super-solubilizing power and ultralow interfacial tension. Further, the unique properties of fluid multiphase systems will be exploited in the synthesis of various types of emulsions.
