Process Design Center BV

Process Design Center (PDC) is specialized in (biobased) conceptual process design and energy efficiency.

In the field of conceptual design, PDC's expertise includes:

  • Idea generation and validation
  • Process simulation
  • Process optimization
  • Physical properties
  • Mass and energy balancing
  • Techno-economic evaluation
  • R&D guidance

PDC structures conceptual process design by applying expert system PROSYN®. PROSYN® is the largest expert system in the world offering a structured and systematic methodology to conceptual process design, also referred to as 'Process Synthesis'.

PROSYN® and PDC's process synthesis technology have been applied in numerous industrial projects reaching capital & operating cost savings up to 50 % compared to existing state-of-the-art designs.
