Who Should Attend
The emphasis of this course is directed toward non-engineers.
Scaleup is a major engineering area. However, others should have an understanding of scaleup so as to be able to appreciate the difficulties involved in process scaleup and to better communicate and participate in the scaleup process. These people include business people, entrepreneurs, business managers and leaders.
The course is at a level that scaleup engineers would benefit from being exposed to the material. Plant process and design engineers and scientists who are employed by the chemical, petrochemical, biochemical, food and pulp and paper and other high tech industries and who are involved with process scaleup would benefit from this course.
Engineers involved in chemical reactor design, specialty chemical manufacture, biotechnology, fermentation, pilot plants, pharmaceutical, process and project design, waste processing, paint, composite material manufacturing, food processing, pulp and paper processing and waste minimization should attend.
Scaleup involves a broad range of different types of people. Professionals include:
• Business Managers
• Business Leaders
• Venture Capitalists
• Chemists, Biologists, Engineers
• Laboratory Personnel
• Plant Personnel
This course is a non-technical, introductory course to Scaleup. Scaleup is the development and design of a process to make large quantities of a product. The subject of scaleup covers multiple aspects not directly tied to science and engineering. These various aspects can control the success and failure of a process scaleup and are covered in this course.
