Course Overview

Separation processes are some of the most important processes in the chemical, manufacturing and oil and gas industries. Efficient separation leads to high value end products [purity, energy efficient and lower energy consumption and emissions for the industry. The most important of these processes include extraction, adsorption, absorption and distillations. This course provides details of the scientific principles, design of columns, operation and simulation for the above approaches. Recent advances are breakthroughs are discussed in detail.

Objective:

In this programme you will:

  • Understand the scientific principles for each of the processes presented
  • Understand the fields of application of each approach
  • Understand the design, operation and simulation for each approach
  • Get acquainted with simulation principles in each approach [Computational Chemistry – HyperChem, and Process Simulation – ASPEN/ DWSIM]
  • Discuss limitations of each approach
  • Focus on extractive distillation media and design
  • Discuss recent advances and breakthroughs in these scientific fields
