Chemical Plant Design
Declining electricity prices of renewable sources like solar & wind open several exciting new opportunities. One of these opportunities is the production of synthetic fuels using low cost renewable energy. In this workshop, we will design a chemical plant in under 4 hours: One that creates Methanol from water and CO2 as feedstock. This is a pressure-cooker program, aimed at content & ambition.
The objective of this workshop is to let students explore the main steps in the design of a chemical plant. Special focus lies on the practical side of process engineering: How to estimate costs, how to identify the risks, how to successfully size equipment when little information is known. During the workshop a team of highly experienced coaches is present to guide & assist the students.
