Process Industry

How can workflows be improved, energy efficiency increased and operating costs reduced? Companies that extract, transport and process raw materials to manufacture semi-finished or high-quality end products by means of physical, mechanical and/or chemical processes are classified as process industries. The production process is characterized by flowing materials or media.
