The 18th European Symposium on Computer Aided Process Engineering contains papers presented at the 18th European Symposium of Computer Aided Process Engineering (ESCAPE 18) held in Lyon, France, from 1-4 June 2008. The ESCAPE series brings the latest innovations and achievements by leading professionals from the industrial and academic communities. The series serves as a forum for engineers, scientists, researchers, managers and students from academia and industry to: - present new computer aided methods, algorithms, techniques related to process and product engineering, - discuss innovative concepts, new challenges, needs and trends in the area of CAPE. This research area bridges fundamental sciences (physics, chemistry, thermodynamics, applied mathematics and computer sciences) with the various aspects of process and product engineering. The special theme for ESCAPE-18 is CAPE for the Users! CAPE systems are to be put in the hands of end users who need functionality and assistance beyond the scientific and technological capacities which are at the core of the systems. The four main topics are: - off-line systems for synthesis and design, - on-line systems for control and operation, - computational and numerical solutions strategies, - integrated and multi-scale modelling and simulation, Two general topics address the impact of CAPE tools and methods on Society and Education. * CD-ROM that accompanies the book contains all research papers and contributions * International in scope with guest speeches and keynote talks from leaders in science and industry * Presents papers covering the latest research, key top areas and developments in Computer Aided Process Engineering

23rd European Symposium on Computer Aided Process Engineering

Computer-aided process engineering (CAPE) plays a key design and operations role in the process industries, from the molecular scale through managing complex manufacturing sites. The research interests cover a wide range of interdisciplinary problems related to the current needs of society and industry. ESCAPE 23 brings together researchers and practitioners of

This study explores the best suitable internals and various feed configurations of a reactive distillation process for unsaturated polyester synthesis. Multi-product simulations were performed to find the operational parameters for producing different grades of polyester in the same equipment. The product transition time during product changeover is determined for various

A Linear Programming technique is proposed to balance the flows in a network, matching flow measurements where available. Where necessary, a “leak-out” flow is invoked on a pipe section in order to achieve the balance. Usually, multiple solutions are possible, and these are sounded out by progressively increasing an integrity

Uncontrolled changes caused many accidents or disasters. Management of change (MOC) has been a very important issue in process safety management. In this paper, it is considered that MOC is divided to two parts: one is individual change management and the other is management of them. Individual change management is

This work presents a novel, efficient and expressive Constraint Programming (CP) approach to the short-term scheduling problem of multistage batch plants. The CP model accounts for many features found in industrial settings and allows modeling operational policies that group batches of the same product into campaigns. Product campaigns simplify the

Product transfer is a problem commonly encountered in industry when a production has to be transferred from a source plant to a target plant. In this paper a strategy to assist product transfer is proposed. The strategy is based on latent variable models (LVMs) to relate the data available from

Batch and semi-batch reactors are widely used for fine chemical productions. The target in the fine chemical industry is to produce a high quality product and operational optimization is the key-element to match it. This work investigates how batch and semibatch reactors can be optimized in order to increase the

The design of efficient supply chains is a major challenge for companies in the process industry. Supply chain performance is subject to different sources of uncertainty including reliability of the facilities. Facility disruptions are among the most critical events that supply chains can experience. In order to reduce the undesirable

The Electric Energy (EE) price plays a significant role in the economic assessment of chemical and more in general of industrial processes. As far as both short-term and long-term economic predictions are required (such as in planning, scheduling, supply chain, on-line optimization, and conceptual design) the estimation of future prices

This work investigates in detail several methodologies to improve the optimal control of discontinuous processes. It shows that whenever a batch dynamic optimization is solved, the optimum is related to the control methodology adopted and the result is a sub-optimum since other more (or apparently less!) appealing control methodologies might

This work addresses the optimization of the batch process recipe of an Advanced Oxidation Process (AOP) aimed at reducing paracetamol (PCT) and Total Organic Carbon (TOC) concentrations from a given effluent. The kinetic model by Cabrera Reina et al. (2012) is adapted to model the treatment, the problem is next formulated

Process engineering applications often lead to non-smooth constrained optimization problems in which the objective function and/or the constraints have non-differentiabilities and step discontinuities. Since the objective function is often the outcome of a complex simulation or the outcome of a lower level optimization problem, it may also be noisy

Model predictive controller (MPC) is a successful in control of the building's environment. The inherent part of the MPC is a system's model which is the bottleneck of this control approach. Data collected for the system identification very often comes from the closed-loop operation which often leads to a failure

Due to the increase competition in the global markets, companies are increasingly receptive to new tools, which help them to improve their processes in terms of economic, environmental and social aspects. This paper aims to analyze an already existent retrofit tool called SustainPro in order to assess the level of
