Towards the twin transition

Twin transition is gradually becoming a standard phrase. We all know it stands for simultaneous digital and green transitions. However, do we ever consider what that means for all of us?

Digital development has created fantastic tools for zero-delay number processing, fact finding and analyses; in general, learning from the past. At the same time, we know what is sustainable and have all the opportunities to choose a lifestyle in which we are on board with the twin transition, starting today.

First, we need to replace fossil materials and energy sources with renewables, look for opportunities to reuse materials and minimize consumption. It is essential to eliminate process fluctuations and leakages and avoid overdoing anything in overcapacity.

This is where the utilization of digital opportunities comes into the picture. As a simple first step, for example, industrial processes must aim for more optimized production schemes to meet the true product demands in terms of both quality and quantity. In other words, we should deliver products that “do the job” in sufficient quantities. Additionally, efficient utilization of historical data and learning from it should be the key objective for digitalization opportunities in the industrial context. Our personal choices to prioritize renewable materials are crucial to support the green transition and have extensive impacts on industrial production.

In line with our mission, we at Elomatic are committed to creating solutions that support the green transition. We strive for excellence in expertise, aiming to be top professionals in our selected fields. This commitment is ingrained in our company’s DNA, the very essence of where it all began. Yet, we aspire to achieve even more. Armed with the right people and the right mindset, we are poised to perform miracles!

As the new editor-in-chief, I’m pleased to announce that, moving forward, we will only publish a digital edition of this magazine. This way, we can reach even more of our customers, save the environment, and offer fresh reading experiences, including video content.
