Bioprocess Digital Courses
Bioprocess design and cost evaluation
Learn how to design integrated bioprocesses and evaluate their production costs
The course teaches the basic methodology for the design and cost evaluatin of bioprocess involving biotransformations, separation and thermal unit operations. It analyses strategies to reduce energy consumption and production cost. The guiding thread of the course is a R&D project on the design and cost evaluation of an enzyme production process.
Evaluate the bioprocess materials consumption and effluents production, energy consumption and equipment sizes
Determine the costs of materials, utilities, labor, equipment investment and utilization, and the overall bioprocess production cost
Construct a spreadsheet simulator for bioprocess design and cost evaluation
Evaluate the uncertainty of the cost evaluation
Assess process modifications to reduce energy consumption and production cost
