The ability to model a process to see if it meets project requirements and is economically viable enhances the conceptual design. Modeling gives engineers a means to identify the most promising processes, in terms of capital investment and return, and this can be particularly important when the project is environmentally oriented (a so-called green project). Did you ever consider producing a new product...
