Adsorption processes are emerging separation technologies that have the potential to cut energy consumption in many different separations vital to society. Differently from other separation technologies, adsorption processes are transient processes where the operation of a bundle of columns is synchronized to operate in an efficient manner.
Modelling the performance of adsorption processes involve the utilization of advanced modelling tools that will be learnt in this project. The student will learn how to develop a mathematical model for a given gas separation and to use gPROMS language as a tool to numerically solve this problem.
The main objective of this project is to learn how to model adsorption processes in general so there is plenty of flexibility in selecting the separation to be targeted.
