Project Description

The design of novel intensified processes is currently the product of creativity rather than the result of applying systematic procedures for identification of process intensification (PI) opportunities at an early conceptual design stage. This project aims to develop novel and systematic approaches for identifying opportunities and targets for (thermal) process intensification. The targeting problem can be formulated as a mixed-integer linear program which can be solved by rigorous optimization techniques. In addition, a PI matrix could be developed to match PI technologies with the driving forces present in chemical processes and eventually provide a methodology for identifying PI opportunities and selecting the most appropriate PI technologies. Process simulation skills are required.
