Learning Outcomes
Apply acquired Chemical Engineering principles in the analysis, simulation, design, energy integration, optimization, and economic evaluation of current industrial processes. Final year students apply the knowledge they gained from the various areas in preparing a feasibility study that concerns a chemical plant. Specific aims / educational objectives of the course are: - Literature review - Process alternatives - Process flowchart development - Mass and energy balances - Basic and advanced design of unit operations (heat exchanger, catalytic reactor, etc.), process synthesis Use of commercial simulators - Energy integration (if appropriate) - Economic evaluation - Environmental impact using Life Cycle Assessment (if appropriate) - HAZOP/HAZAN (if appropriate) - Writing a technical report - Presentation of results. Other Objectives - The development and promotion of collaboration skills in teams - The writing and presentation of a technical report - The development of critical and design skills - Selection of process flowcharts or units - Simulation of the installation using modern computer tools. - Optimization of units or their processes - Economic evaluation of an industrial facility with real financial, technical, and other data - Integration of specific environmental and risk assessments and risk analysis - The technical presentation of the study
General Competences
  • Apply knowledge in practice
  • Retrieve, analyse and synthesise data and information, with the use of necessary technologies
  • Make decisions
  • Work in teams
  • Generate new research ideas
  • Design and manage projects
  • Advance free, creative and causative thinking
Course Content (Syllabus)
- Completing the detailed process design (continuing from TOM I) - Full economic evaluation (calculation of the Net Present Value of the investment, repayment time and cash flow analysis over a period of 25 years) - Environmental assessment (if required) - HAZOP/HAZAN (if required) - Writing a detailed, well-structured technical report (no page limit) - Presentation in a panel of two examiners. The presentation lasts about an hour and is followed by discussion/examination and grading of the group
