The Sweet Spot – Simulation for Sugar Processing

By Articles No Comments
Sugar is one of the most important agricultural commodities in the world with a global production of around 180 million tonnes per year[1]. To supply the staggering demand for sugar and ethanol, over 2 billion tonnes of sugar crops – sugar cane and sugar beets – are harvested annually[2]. In fact, sugar cane is the world’s most produced agricultural crop,...

Seven Golden Rules of Process Modelling

By Articles No Comments

Simulation is a critical exercise in process engineering for the design and operation of chemical and mineral processing plants. Process modelling allows engineers to study and understand the behaviour of their process under a range of conditions to optimise efficiency, maximise product value, and minimise environmental impact. However, creating an accurate and robust process model can be a daunting task…

SysCAD at 25th GTT Users’ Meeting 2023

By News No Comments

We will be attending the 25th GTT Users’ Meeting next week. Registration is still open, and the event is free to attend. Kevin Heppner will present on the use of the THEREDA database in SysCAD TCE using ChemApp. This demonstrates the application of ChemApp in aqueous chemistry, rather than the more common pyrometallurgy use. The example model presented accurately predicts…
