Organization profile

Introduction / mission

SPROC Lab focuses on challenges critical for the dynamic and flexible operation of chemical processes.

Organisational profile

We aim to provide technology that enables chemical process industry maintain its competitiveness in the face of developments such as Industry 4.0, electrification of process industry, circular economy and green transition. The consequence of these developments for process industry means

• Tightly integrated physical network,
• Wide range of feedstocks,
• Dynamic multiple energy sources and market prices
• Relevant information from big data

In order to address the needs of the process industry, SPROC Lab focuses on developing theory and methods in the area of modeling for control combining physical knowledge and process data, model alignment and maintenance, model based operation support technology such as model predictive control, real time optimization, interaction of scheduling and control. Additionally, SPROC investigates the integration of process design and control for intensified chemical systems and forced dynamic operation of heterogeneously catalyzed chemical reactions.

UN Sustainable Development Goals

In 2015, UN member states agreed to 17 global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all. Our work contributes towards the following SDG(s):

  • SDG 7 - Affordable and Clean Energy
