Research Profile

We aim to provide technology that enables chemical process industry maintain its competitiveness in the face of developments such as Industry 4.0, electrification of process industry, circular economy and green transition. The consequence of these developments for process industry means

• Tightly integrated physical network,
• Wide range of feedstocks,
• Dynamic multiple energy sources and market prices
• Relevant information from big data

In order to address the needs of the process industry, SPROC Lab focuses on developing theory and methods in the area of modeling for control combining physical knowledge and process data, model alignment and maintenance, model based operation support technology such as model predictive control, real time optimization, interaction of scheduling and control. Additionally, SPROC investigates the integration of process design and control for intensified chemical systems and forced dynamic operation of heterogeneously catalyzed chemical reactions.
