Advanced Industrial Process and Unit Operations Scale-up

    24 – 26 March 2021, online training


    Fifty percent of all commercial scale process implementations fail. This course will address critical success factors for process innovation and scale-up from idea to commercial scale start-up. From innovation stage,discovery, concept, feasibility, development, detailed design through to construction, procurement, and start-up. Specific attention is paid to design, modelling and experimentation. The course consists of interactive lectures, discussions and workshops applied to real industrial cases.
