About this course

The main part of the course is an individual assignment where the student shall plan an industrial production process, with the main focus on bioprocesses. Examples of such processes are Biorefinery, industrial production of bioethanol, biodiesel, fermentation, production of microbial biomass. In addition a description of some unit operations will be done, particularly units that are relevant for the assignment. The course will contain energi and mass balance calculations. If practical, there will be a visit to a relevant industrial plant.

Learning outcome

The course will give the student knowledge on how to put together several unit operations into a production unit. Dimentioning the different units so that they are adapted to each other is central. Additionally the students will gain knowledge in how to perform energi and mass balance calculations.
  • The teaching is a combination of lectures/seminars, self-study, group work and exercises. Problem-based learning (PBL) is central. The main part of the course is an assignment where students designing the production process. The project report will be in a specified format.
