Prof. Bäck will present results of the CHEMAX project at the aspentech Global Conference in Boston, MA, May 4-6, 2015.
The presentation is entitled “Optimization of the Structure and the Operational Parameters of Chemical Processes by a Memetic Algorithm Coupled to AspenPlus Simulations“. The research project that runs in cooperation with the divis GmbH, SUPREN GmbH and the ZEDO (Zentrum für Beratungssysteme in der Technik, Dortmund e.V.) and is funded by the German ministry of education and research. The project aims at the maximization of energy efficiency of chemical plants by simultaneous optimization of plant structure and plant parameters.
