Northrop Grumman Engineering & Science Student Design Showcase
The purpose of this project is to design and simulate a chemical plant which will manufacture 1,3-Butadiene on purpose. The proposed plant will be located in the United States and will operate at a rate of almost 11,000 kg/hr. On an annual basis, the plant will produce 100 thousand tons. Plant simulation was performed using AspenPlus computer software.
