  Competences in Process Design AVT.SVT Competences in Process Design

The competences of the method-oriented Process Design Group at AVT.SVT cover predominantly the conceptual and optimization-based design of (bio-)chemical and energy processes. Hereby, different levels of detail are considered, from the screening of entire reaction networks to the sizing of single units.

A key method is the process design framework which divides the design task into several systematic steps. These steps include, among others, the use of shortcut methods to evaluate multiple process concepts, or the simultaneous optimization of all units in a flowsheet with rigorous models. Since it is always the aim to use realistic property models, applying methods for solving hierarchical optimization problems is an important tool to this group.
