Activatec provides clients with an expert evaluation of processes for the manufacturing of biobased ingredients and materials from currently unused and low-value organic sources.
The process we follow is summarised as:
Analyse and collect all the previous data and specifications to identify and define the scope of the activities.
Identify and evaluate the products to be targeted. Also, technology screening and assessment to obtain them using process conceptual design, thermodynamic feasibility and a pre-investment study by an early techno-economic evaluation.
Demonstrate the technical feasibility and Proof of Concept to client-defined specs.
Develop the complete manufacturing process flowsheet for the chosen alternative: pre-treatment, upstream and downstream.
Identify potential hazards and operability problems and regulatory requirements.
Specify the equipment, operation conditions and streams, calculate the detailed material and energy balances, prepare a preliminary cost estimation and a business case.
Managing effectively contractors, scheduling and managing project phases: detailed designs (mechanical, civil, electrical, I&C), installation, commissioning and validation. Analyse bids and budgets.
