This online course provides learners with a basic understanding of computer-aided process intensification (PI) and design methods.  It spans the topic from a basic introduction of design methods to different representation and optimization-based approached for generating process flowsheets with PI alternatives. There are four modules in this course.

The first module provides a brief introduction to process design approaches that can be applied to PI. Learners will learn how to formulate a design problem, learn the elementary steps of systematic process design and intensification, and learn how to evaluate a process flowsheet and compare different flowsheets using various economic, environmental and operational criteria. In the second module, learners will learn how to determine performance targets for mass and energy intensity, how to develop design implementations for reaching intensification targets, and finally, how to establish tradeoffs among various intensification objectives.

In the third module, learners will learn how to use different phenomena, tasks and unit operations to construct both intensified and non-intensified process flowsheets, and how to represent and generate alternative process flowsheets and how to quickly screen the alternatives. In the final module, learners will learn how to identify various intensification pathways, how to identify optimal design and connectivity of intensified unit operations, and how to design and screen plausible flowsheets with process intensification.
