Experiencing Process Plant Conditions through a Pilot Plant-Based Laboratory Class

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

A practical for students to experience a process plant is presented, based on operating a solvent absorption plant for carbon dioxide capture. The student must operate the plant in assigned roles that closely identify with a chemical plant environment, to achieve specific performance targets. Students must overcome technical challenges that require them to translate their theoretical understanding into practical outcomes. This ensures students take ownership of the class and act semi-independently of the demonstrators.
