The research aim of ADRESS is to gain a fundamental understanding, to develop theoretical advancements, practical advancements and tools in the areas of synthesis, design and optimization of (bio) processes. We have contributed in describing systematic methodologies only to find, Continue reading →
Process Synthesis and design are both an essential part of process development, which aim toward the generation of feasible flowsheet variants and their optimization with respect to specific objectives. These objectives are mostly related to economics, but also take into Continue reading →
Research in the formulation, solution and analysis of mathematical programs has grown tremendously over the last 25 years. In 1980, optimization on engineering problems beyond linear programming were often viewed as a curious novelty without much benefit. Now, optimization applications Continue reading →
Process Intensification (PI) aims to drastically reduce energy consumption and processing cost of chemical processes by utilizing the synergy between multifunctional phenomena at different times, spatial scales, by enhacing mass, heat and momentum transfer rates.
In an effort to reduce CO2 emmision, transport has become the most resilient sector due to its strong dependence on fossil energy sources. Oil, being the main energy source for transport, supplies 95% of the sector´s energy consumption and Continue reading →
