Process Systems Engineering

L4

Short description / Objective

The aims of the research line are to model and simulate chemical and environmental processes, industrial systems or sub-systems and production management and to develop systematic design optimization methods for selecting configurations and operating conditions in process systems. This work leads to (i) propose innovative alternatives for the improvement and optimization of the process performance or (ii) intermediate solutions that allow improvement of the system in the search for the optimum conditions. Areas of application include design of aqueous separation process, simulation of process operation, optimization methods for environmental processes and production management.
