About the Centre for Process Integration
We enjoy an outstanding international reputation for the quality of our research in process synthesis, design and integration.
The origins of process integration research in the early 1980s were rooted in energy conservation. Today our work aims for greater efficiency in the use of raw materials and water to encourage sustainability.
New design methods are developed by employing appropriate process analysis, modelling and optimisation techniques and applying these models and methods, using leading-edge software to industrially relevant sample problems.
Concepts developed within the Centre around energy, hydrogen and water pinch analysis methods have found widespread industrial practice.
