Title Nothing comes for free - membrane plant economy
Person and role
Description The aim of this presentation is to provide some fundamental guidance how to design and operate a membrane plant. The aim is to provide a framework to calculate the capital expenditures (CAPEX) and operational expenditures (OPEX). The approach present will follow in the guidelines of the “Membrane Filtration Handbook” by Jørgen Wagner [1] – a practical guide on applied membrane knowledge.
The first part of the lecturer will focus a step-by-step design of membrane using a flux curve as starting point to the final design and the related price indication.
The second part of the lecturer will discuss then the key factors influencing the OPEX and how to calculate and optimize the OPEX.
Overall, this lecturer will provide to fundamentals to design a membrane plant and thus estimate OPEX and CAPEX. Hence, it should enable the participant to conduct first estimations regarding the economics and sustainability of a new biorefinery process.
