June 24, 2021

On June 23-24, an online conference was held on the topic “Experience of equipping enterprises with automatic systems for continuous monitoring and accounting of industrial emissions. Solutions for the automatic control and regulation of industrial pollution”.

The event was organized by the Trans-European Centre for Trade and Finance. The centre specializes in the development of professional contacts for industrial and investment cooperation between Russia, Kazakhstan and other countries of Eastern Europe and Great Britain.

During the conference various engineering and consulting companies from Europe and Russia shared their experience in the field of ecomoritoring and assessment of industrial emissions, limit standards and air quality control.

Director of the UNIDO Center for International Industrial Cooperation Sergey Korotkov made a presentation on the topic “Digitalization: Development of Technologies for the Benefit of Sustainable Development. UNIDO Approach”.

In his speech, Sergey noted that, according to UNIDO reports, ADP technologies, when applied to industrial production, offer enormous potential for economic growth and improving human well-being, as well as protecting the environment and achieving the goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

According to UNIDO, in the global volume of patents granted for advanced digital manufacturing technologies, only 10 countries have an above average market share. These countries are (in order of market share): USA, Japan, Germany, China, Taiwan, France, Switzerland, United Kingdom, South Korea and the Netherlands. Together, they account for 91% of all global patent families. They account for almost 70% of exports and 46% of imports in the world.

“In Russia, the digitalization of industry as a whole is proceeding at an average pace, it is quite possible to achieve competitive advantages. One of the reasons for the low rates is a shortage of personnel; engineers, as a rule, have a traditional, conservative education”, said Mr. Korotkov.
