2. can make market study of raw materials, products, process alternatives and calc. material margin
3. can calculate material and energy balance and simulation of the process
4. can draw process flow diagram (PFD),
5. can define equipment sizing, equipment list, specification and instructions
6. can demonstrate team work, presentation, management and leadership skills in real plant design

Content (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

1. A preliminary design and feasibility study of a process, done as a design project. Includes: acquiring of source information for design, methods of design, Project work is done in teams of 5-6 students. The design project in part A is divided into two reports:
2. Project start-up, market study and plant location, process alternatives and comparison of process alternatives
3. Selecting the process alternatives; process design, PFD, material and energy balance, equipment sizing, equipment lists, emissions, environmental and safety of the process
