An Innovate UK supported project was initiated to establish the design feasibility of a distributed fertiliser production facility using hydrogen produced in an electrolyser.
BPE’s key challenges on the project related to integration of a number of process modules/technologies and addressing the key process safety challenges related to the materials/processes in operation. Optimisation of energy and heat recovery were a key project requirement.
BPE worked closely with the project collaborators – ITM Power and The University of Sheffield to model and optimise the integrated process. Aspen One was used to review and optimise the heat recovery across the process modules. BPE chaired a series of process safety studies throughout the project to inform key decisions on design and process controls.
BPE’s support allowed the R&D based project to develop on a secure footing with rigorous process safety support. A series of design iterations were successfully supported leading to successful lab scale trials.
