Process Technology - An Introduction

19 July 2021 10:00 till 15:00

Are you active in the process industry, but lacking a process-technological background? Come and join our DPTI-course ‘Process Technology for non-Process Technologists’ from 19 until 21 January in Delft.

Are you active in the process industry, but lacking a process-technological background? Would you like to understand the challenges, experienced by the process engineers, (bio)chemists or microbiologists you are managing, in scaling up processes from lab scale to industrial scale? Would you like to understand what methods the process engineers are using to design and optimize the processes in your plant?

Come and join our DPTI-course ‘Process Technology for non-Process Technologists’ from 19 until 21 January in Delft.

This course is specifically aimed at non-Process Technologists like you working in the product and process industries for e.g. pharmaceutical, fine chemicals, base chemicals, petrochemical, food, bio, pulp/paper, fuels, advanced materials and watertreatment.

What can you expect?

During 3 days, you will be exposed to interactive lectures, which are fun and based on daily life examples and you will learn the most important concepts, including:
• Scale up and economy of scale
• Continuous vs batch processing
• Simplifying complex processes to a few unit operations
• Heat and mass transfer
• Reactor selection
• Separations and finishing
• Safety
• Plant design
