Scale Up Programme

Client: Confidential Client, Electrochemistry

The Brief

BPE’s confidential client had a novel, Inorganic product that needed to be scaled up. A number of technology options needed to be reviewed alongside a range of potential production scales. A key requirement for the project was to meet a number of significant process safety constraints.

The Challenges

Pilot scale work had been undertaken which indicated alternative reaction chemistry was required to contain an exotherm. This presented a key challenge to the design of the increased scale unit operations.

The Reponse

BPE modelled the new process before undertaking the design. We worked on a collaborative basis with our client’s technical team to ensure that all available data was fully reviewed and applied to support the modelling work.

The Results

BPE were able to identify a secure basis of design for increased scale of production through a rigorous gap analysis on critical process parameters and critical quality attributes.
