While the general idea of digital twins has been in use for nearly ten years, the chemical process
industry has employed similar computational technologies for decades. Originally developed for the
petroleum and petrochemical industries, process simulation tools now have applications across the
entire industry, and the barriers to implementation have never been lower. This talk reviews a series of
case studies ranging from hydrometallugical processing to biopharmaceutical production. The discussion
includes both process improvement and process monitoring applications.
Charles Siletti earned his Bachelor’s in Chemical Engineering at the University of Maine and his PhD in
Chemical Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He has spent the intervening years
working on all aspects of computer aided process design and operations. He has worked with (and on)
many of the major commercial process simulation tools and has completed numerous projects involving
process design and economics, real-time process optimization, equipment monitoring, batch process
simulation and batch process scheduling. Dr. Siletti currently manages the SchedulePro Designer
product at Intelligen, Inc.
This meeting is free and open to all, not just to Virtual Local Section members.
