Program for Webinar 1: Sustainable process design in 12 hierarchical steps consisting of a 3-stage methodology
Finding novel and more sustainable production systems is an important step towards addressing the grand challenges of energy, water, environment and food currently faced by modern society. Significantly better and/or new processing routes are needed to, just to name a few, convert available resources to useful products, recycle unused material, and reprocess used material, without negatively impacting the sustainability of modern society. The synthesis design of processing routes is receiving increasing attention, not only due to the scope and significance of the problems that it covers but also because of its industrial relevance. A processing route is a combination of raw materials, a series of processing steps to convert them, and products which they can be converted to; each processing step has various alternatives in terms of processing technologies, giving rise to a superstructure of alternatives. The synthesis-design problem is formulated as a superstructure optimization problem, solved in 3-stages. Stage-1 is the synthesis stage where a preliminary processing route is identified together with interesting alternatives. Stage-2 is the design-analysis stage where a detailed design is performed on the processing route from stage-1. Analysis of the design is performed to identify process “hot-spots” that help to define targets for improvement. Stage-3 is the innovation stage, where new alternative processing routes that match the targets of improvement are identified, thereby leading to innovative and sustainable process design. The three webinars will guide the participants through the different steps of sustainable process design with the help of case studies.
The Webinars are being organized by the PSE for SPEED office in Bangkok, Thailand. All confirmed registered participants will be sent a link to join the Webinars. The time indicated for each lecture includes Q&A after the lecture. The problem solution lectures will be step-by-step demonstrations of selected case studies. Selected recorded presentations will also be available to subscribers at the PSE for the SPEED YouTube channel. Subscribers will also be able to download copies of the presentation slides. There will be Q&A at the end of all lectures and also in the problem sessions.
Please direct all your questions to the PSE for SPEED in Bangkok to Ms. Orakotch Padungwatanaroj (P.firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com).
See the table below for the date and time (in CET) for the webinars 14-16 July 2021.
