I. Introduction

As the world progresses, so does the industry. The first industrial revolution took place, to birth steam engines. These steam engines went on to transport the Industrial Revolution, taking not only civilians but soldiers and prisoners across geographies. Eventually, the steam engines also birthed the field of engineering, developed by pioneers such as Carl Benz, Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla, and Pauling.


I-A. Industrial Revolutions

The world, however, has moved centuries from the Renaissance and the First Industrial Revolution. Today, with the sheer quantity and quality of research and development being undertaken by various organisations, we face not one but multiple such small-scale industrial revolutions on a regular basis.



The focus of many benign technologies from the 17th and 18th centuries never fell on energy or sustenance, while they have become the prime focus of today’s industries, governments, laws and rules. Whether it is the introduction of new technologies, the improvement of a process, a piece of equipment, a part of a plant or a group of operations, they are primarily focused on the reduction of expenses and carbon footprints alongside the maximisation of profits.


II. Research And Development

Many plausible solutions have been researched by scholars of pure and applied sciences alike, amounting to process redesigning, equipment improvisation, plant redesigning and modifications in the operating conditions of the plant.


One may enhance the process by either varying the feed, intermediaries, and catalysts or by alternative energy reduction strategies. One may modify the operating conditions of temperature and pressure in the equipment, in the feed stream or through effective energy utilisation strategies. As a result, these process enhancements demand the redesign of the process and the processing equipment.


II-A. Implementational Challenges


Industrial Equipment

Nevertheless, such process modifications cannot be tested on a live plant in view of the losses which may be incurred. A new plant cannot be installed for the sole purpose of testing and validating such modifications either.






III. Your Solution

Hence, process simulation, a field of engineering, mainly focuses on the development, testing, and analysis of probable solutions and improvements to a plant. With the bespoke solutions at Parenting Absolute Engineering, you can convert new ideas, processes or research into mass-production-ready continuous-operation process plants. Your concern, our solution, enhanced customer satisfaction.
