529-0549-01 ACase Studies in Process Design I
This course does not take place on a weekly basis. Instead, a case study is carried out by the students in a specific "case study week" from 23.10 to 27.10.
Besides, there will be four introductory lectures to the project (before the case study week) on Fridays from 13.00 -16.00 the following days: 29.9, 6.10, 13.10, 20.10.

Catalogue data

AbstractThe focus of part I of the case study course lies on the literature-based comparison of chemical process alternatives. Based on this compilation and selected quantitative as well as qualitative measures, a process assessment and comparison is conducted. A basic flowsheet is then generated, and mass and energy balances are performed to carry out a preliminary economic and environmental assessment.
Objective- to obtain knowledge about different databases and sources of information
- application of the knowledge obtained in lectures to a real problem
- problem-oriented problem solving (application of different methods to the same subject)
- team work
- report writing and presentation techniques
ContentThe focus of part I of the case study course lies on the literature-based comparison of chemical process alternatives. For this purpose, relevant substance data (i.e. physico-chemical, toxicological, safety, and environmental data), as well as information about synthesis routes and technical implementations (i.e. on reaction kinetics; possible separation operations; economic, safety, and environmental aspects), are collected from the literature. Based on this compilation and selected quantitative as well as qualitative measures, a process assessment and comparison is conducted and the most promising process alternative is chosen for further evaluation. For this alternative, a basic flowsheet and mass and energy balances are generated.
