Process simulation is used to analyse single unit operations as well as their combination to complex processes. The obtained mass, energy, and exergy balances give insight into interdependencies of different process steps. The simulation results are valuable for design, improvement, optimisation, and scale-up of processes. Industrial standard process simulation software tools (Aspen Plus, IPSEpro, gPROMS) are applied. If necessary, new process units are developed and integrated into the available tools.


  • Mass and energy balances of complex processes
  • Process integration and exergy analysis
  • Model development (unit operations, process flowsheet)
  • Calculation of thermodynamic properties and electrolyte equilibria
