Content The chemPLANT competition gives students the opportunity to demonstrate their theoretical knowledge and skills in the broad spectrum of process engineering in a practical task (plant design / process planning). The task is set by a consortium of industrial companies. The teams of 2 to 5 students have 3.5 months to submit their results, which are then presented to a jury at a conference. Creativity and procedural thinking are required in finding the innovative solutions. Possible topics are:
Digitalization and Industry 4.0
Process planning and conceptual design of new plants
Sustainability in the chemical industry
The evaluation of the developed solution is based on technical correctness, creativity, consideration of ecological and economic aspects and style and language of the written elaboration.
A supervisor will be assigned to students to coordinate the process of the module; however, the supervisor does not cooperate in solving the tasks from the chemPLANT competition.
