Basic skills on chemical processes design (Mass and energy computations).

The students should acquire skills on analysis and design of chemical processes, and should be able to use computational methods for process simulation.

1.Chemical process industries - generic structure; 2.Design and integration principles; 3.Selection and configuration of reactive systems; 4.Design of separation processes; 5.Prediction of properties and operating conditions; 6.Analysis and design of energy networks; 7.Mass integration networks and green chemistry.

Evaluation Methodology
A written test (50% of final grade) and practical component (50% of final grade). The practical part can be divided into a group assignment and proposed individual activities.

Teaching Method
Lectures supported by demonstrations and resolution of practical cases. Theoretical and practical sessions focused on the simulation of chemical processes by computational means.

Software used in class
In theoretical-practical there are used chemical processes simulation applications, or developed spreadsheets.
