Process Intensification (PI) and Modular Chemical Process Intensification (MCPI) are relatively new concepts for many professionals in the process industries. This course, developed by the Texas A&M University in partnership with Chemstations through a RAPID Manufacturing Institute award, is designed for professional engineers and faculty interested in state-of-the-art process design, synthesis and integration methods, models and techniques for computer-aided process intensification (PI). Over the course of three days, you’ll:
- Review challenges, approaches, tools and opportunities for computer-aided PI
- Learn systematic approaches for design and simulation of representative intensified processes involving reaction, separation, reactive separation and hybrid systems
- Discuss model-based identification, analysis and benchmarking of intensification opportunities and early stage conceptual PI and MCPI process designs
- Review model-based process flexibility, safety and operability analysis of PI and MCPI systems, and model-based strategies towards quality, safety and performance control of PI and MCPI designs
- Perform techno-economic, feasibility and sustainability analysis of PI and MCPI process units and systems
