Students will be able to:

• define the suitable apparatuses and unit operations needed for industrial process implementation

• define the key parameters of apparatuses, necessary for optimal functionality of process

• apply the Aspen Plus software in simulation of chemical technologies

• develop and implement simple user model of unit operation
