Supervisory Software is Critical Component in Sugar Cane Processing Efficiency

Brazil’s ethanol industry holds incredible potential as a renewable source of energy that has already proven itself as an economic and environmentally sound method of producing sugarcane based fuel. Unfortunately, the sector has met with challenges that were not anticipated ten years ago. A large increase in the global supply of oil, climate change, and economic instability have forced Brazil’s ethanol sector to search for technology that can offer a competitive advantage to petroleum based gasoline by making ethanol processing more efficient and cost effective. SCADA and HMI software that can increase the efficiency of ethanol production is one key solution for bridging the gap between petroleum and ethanol production cost, which enables sugarcane and ethanol processing facilities to meet market demands for production of biofuel at prices comparable to petroleum gasoline.

Cloud Computing for SCADA

Moving all or part of SCADA applications to the cloud can cut costs significantly while dramatically increasing reliability and scalability.

Although cloud computing is becoming more common, it’s relatively new for SCADA (supervisory control and data acquisition) applications. Cloud computing provides convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources including networks, servers, storage, applications, and services. These resources can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction.
