Model Production of Green Fuel from Waste Oil


Learn how to model the oxygen removal process to convert waste cooking oil into green diesel. Users will learn how to model a hydroprocessing reactor to produce normal paraffins and improve its cold flow properties through isomerization in a hydrotreating reactor. Users will then evaluate final product quality by cetane number calculation, and review CO2 emissions to ensure sustainability target is met.

Audience:

  • Engineers who need to use first principles simulations to solve Sustainability problems for processes or process units
