Engineering & Design


With over 25 years of industry experience, we have profound knowledge and understanding of process technologies and process design.

We can conduct our analysis and developments as early as the first steps you take in a laboratory. Chemistry or just the idea can be enough for us to convert it into fully developed process concepts and plant designs. We combine our knowledge and experience with state-of-the-art modelling and simulation tools to derive mass and energy balances and develop process flowsheets. With this model-based approach, we have endless possibilities to study and to optimize key process parameters such as plant capacity, energy, CAPEX & OPEX, waste and emissions.

Simultaneously we can analyse and design individual unit operations e.g. reactors, distillation columns or turbines and assess the impact of the design choices of individual process units on the overall plant performance, its controllability and safety but also economic effects such as CAPEX and OPEX.

On the route to gathering more knowledge and information by your R&D or technology providers, we can update the models as new information becomes available and refine the design to reflect the latest developments and create a (preliminary)  conceptual design, shortening the time to basic or detailed engineering.
