DTE’s AI innovation for metals industry
DTE, a leading innovator in process and quality control for the metals production and manufacturing industry, offers a glimpse into its innovative technology and its applications in a new CBS documentary series, “Innovation and Disruption Leaders.”
The series showcases leading businesses and individuals who are reshaping industries and pushing the boundaries of what is possible.
After a successful year that saw DTE complete a Series A2 financing round with backing from aluminium industry leader Novelis, VC firm Metaplanet and the European Innovation Council (EIC) Fund, along with existing investors Chrysalix Venture Capital and Brunnur Ventures, the company has set its sights on growing its sales pipeline and accelerating its technology and product development capabilities.
In the new short documentary, DTE showcases how its technology is revolutionising the aluminium industry by eliminating the manual sampling process and providing producers and manufacturers of metals the tools to optimise processes and production and ensure they minimise carbon emissions.
At the heart of DTE’s breakthrough innovation is its real-time elemental analysis technology, an industry-first advancement that promises to revolutionise the entire metals industry. This technology enables real-time process control, an unprecedented advancement that promises to minimise waste and optimise production efficiency in the energy-intensive metals industry.
Commenting on its applications, Derek Prichett, Senior VP of Corporate Development of Novelis, the world’s largest recycler of aluminium and one of DTE’s investors and clients, said: “The main improvements that we expect to see by implementing DTE’s technology are safety, by keeping operators away from furnaces and molten metal and out of harm’s way, quality, by ensuring that our compositions in furnaces are maintained on specification thanks to real-time analytics and an increase in our recycling potential, by knowing how much scrap metal to include in our batches.”
Commenting on the new docuseries launch, Karl Ágúst Matthíasson, CEO of DTE, said: “Being part of ‘Innovation and Disruption Leaders’ is an incredible honour for DTE. We are proud to be recognised for our commitment to pushing the boundaries of the metals industry.
