114 Enabling Process Innovation Through Computation-EPIC - Session I

Wednesday, April 2, 2014: 8:00 AM
Eglinton Winton (Hilton New Orleans Riverside)
The first session will focus on the use of advanced multiphase flow simulations that can offer unique insight into the complex processes involved in reaction, separation or blending processes in the chemical and allied energy industries. Such insight can be used not only to trouble shoot existing process operations, but they can also be used to conceive, design, optimize and build new generations of devices for achieving orders of magnitude improvement in process operations and efficiencies, saving significant amount of energy consumed in these operations. The goals of this sessions are to review the current state of the art and bring together practitioners from industries, developers of such advanced simulation tools, as well researchers from Universities and government laboratories to assess the current status, share common experiences on strengths and weaknesses of such tools.
