Chemical Engineering Training

Two Days Course on Product Design


The workshop introduces the chemical product design and the process design issues related to their development. It will highlight the phases in product and process development; the relationships between product attributes, ingredients and product microstructure as well as the view from economical perspective. The latest available methods and tools will be introduced to solve various types of cases associated with product-process design in a systematic manner.

Learning Outcome:

  • Describe chemical product design and identify the key issues related to product and process development.
  • Define the needs of a chemical product; identify the candidate chemicals and/or mixtures of chemicals and quickly evaluate the important process design issues.
  • Apply state-of-the-art methods on product design and development in a systematic manner.
  • Design novel and sustainable chemical products and processes and be among the first to commercialise it.
Course Outline:
  • Product and process design and development: what to make, how to make Classification of products
  • Relationship between product attributes, ingredients, and microstructure
  • Design problem definition, databases and property models
  • Tutorial exercises (gasoline blend, lubricant blend, diesel blend)
