Our methodology for full process development and design
We pride ourselves on adopting a top-down approach to address complex and multifaceted process issues. Starting from very general and bird’s eye view considerations we identify the key challenges, and then we get step by step up to addressing the technical “details” that must be solved to answer your needs.
Some teams or companies work only with experimental trial and errors. Others give a lot of credit to process simulation. We are intimately convinced that the adequate combination of both is the winning ticket:
We gather data both from your experience, from the literature, or from experiments that we specifically design.We then build a model for describing or predicting your system. This model can be very simple or extremely sophisticated depending on the question to be answered.
The model is first tested and challenged and then used to answer questions like:
What are the technical advantages to switch from a batch to a continuous production?
Which reactor design is the best suited for the reaction?
What are the most effective technologies for the downstream process?
What is the production cost I can expect?
We are fully confident in our recommendations. That is the reason why, in case you are interested, we can bring our support for the on-site implementation of the process including the selection of an equipment supplier or subcontractor for the building of the unit.
