Federated Co-operatives Limited’s WIP wins SUEZ Resource Revolution Award

Federated Co-operatives Limited’s Co-op Refinery Complex (CRC) Wastewater Improvement Project (WIP) won the first SUEZ Resource Revolution Award. CRC expanded its capabilities by reusing its wastewater for the purpose of steam production. The WIP reduces the refinery’s freshwater consumption by 28 percent. The treated effluent is converted into steam used for heating processes, cooling towers and to power equipment, reducing reliance on groundwater.

The mission of the awards program is to recognize innovators from around the globe in IoT categories. This year’s program attracted more than 3,500 nominations from companies all over the world.

Indegy achieves certification to help detect, respond to cybersecurity threats

Cybersecurity firm Indegy has achieved "RSA Ready" interoperability certification with the RSA NetWitness Platform. This distinction enables organizations to bridge the current visibility gap between enterprise information technology and operational technology environments. The companies successfully completed testing that assures customers that both solutions can bidirectionally share information to detect, respond and mitigate security threats across their entire attack surface, including industrial control system (ICS) devices.
