Membrane process plant design (UTwente Pays-Bas)Code de l'UE : HMCH361


1. Introduction to systematic process design
2. Introduction to process simulation (flowsheeting: Unisim or ..)
3. Introduction to cost estimation


- To know main applications of membranes in separation processes, (catalytic) membrane reactors, and new applications of technological interest.
- Clearly define scope and design basis
- Generate process alternatives in systematic procedure: Combine membrane module(s) with additional unit operations to obtain an operational process. Make balanced choices.
- Simulate (membrane) processes with a commercial flowsheeter.
- To understand main transport mechanisms in different types of membranes.
- The ability to design a (membrane) process (calculate membrane area, optimal module configuration.
- Technical en economical evaluation.
Formation expérimentale :
- Studies of cases about the technical design and the economical cost of membrane processes
