Aspen Simulations of Process to Make Bioproducts

    Project: Research project

    Project Details

    Description

    Task 1) Develop Aspen Simulations of Processes to Make Platform Biochemicals

    Use Apsen to develop process simulations of bio-based processes to make 5-10 platform chemicals.

    Task 2) Develop Aspen simulations of Processes to Make Bioproducts

    Use Apsen to develop process simulations of processes to make 5-10 bioproduts from platform chemicals.

    Task 3) Develop Aspen Simulations of Processes to Make Conventional Products

    Use Apsen to develop process simulations of 5-10 processes to make conventional products that would be displaced by bio-products.

    Task 4) Documentation

    Document approach to Aspen simulations conducted at NWU and develop stream tables and other figures as necessary for technical report.
