Process Engineering

Thorough process knowledge combined with superior chemical engineering skills, benchmarking data and modern modeling tools are the prerequisites for successful improvements whether in the areas of environmental, energy conservation, production increase or cost reduction. Knowledge of the newest proven process technologies and equipment as well as an unbiased view are necessary in optimizing the existing operations or planning new facilities. EKONO's typical process engineering assignments include:

  • Pre-feasibility and Feasibility Studies that typically include establishment of current mill balances, identification and evaluation of improvement alternatives, estimation of operating and capital costs, and development of the implementation schedule.
  • Process design services in large feasibility studies and detail design projects, with the balance of the tasks typically provided by companies specializing in detail design.
  • Audits, in which the key objective is to quickly assess a mill's situation and provide improvement recommendations in operating costs, chemical and energy use or reduction of environmental discharges.
  • Mill Debottlenecking Studies, which are typically feasibility level evaluations to determine options to increase the plant production in the most cost-effective way (view an example).
  • Energy and Environmental Studies, which are good examples of projects in which economic, productivity, product quality, environmental, and energy performance must be simultaneously optimized.

Other process engineering services provided by EKONO include process troubleshooting, studies of pulping byproducts and benchmarking studies.
