Department of Process Modeling and Control
The main objective of the process modeling and control department is development of pilot plants and related know-how for various polymerization processes. Researchers in this department generate engineering data from laboratory and bench scale for process modeling and design of pilot plants.
Research and Educational Fields
- Modeling and simulation of polymerization-related processes.
- Basic design engineering of pilot plants for the polymerization-related processes.
- Pilot scale study of the production of polymers via emulsion and suspension polymerization techniques.
- Presentation of the short course trainings on polymerization engineering and process control.
Some of the Completed and Active Projects:
- Know-how, basic design engineering, and manufacturing of a 30 ton/year pilot plant for production of nitrile rubber.
- Pilot scale production of gel-type strong acid cation exchange resins based on the polystyrene-divinylbenzene copolymers.
- Pilot scale production of gel-type strong base anion exchange resins based on the polystyrene-divinylbenzene copolymers.
- Structural study and production of macro-porous strong acid cation exchange resins based on the polystyrene-divinylbenzene copolymers.
- Pilot scale production of PS and SAN copolymer via suspension polymerization.
- Modeling of particle size distribution in emulsion polymerization of styrene.
- Morphology study in core-shell emulsion systems.
- Basic design engineering of a multi-purpose polymerization pilot plant for polyolefins.
