Process Scaleup for Non-Engineers

  March 20, 2013  
CfPA - The Center for Professional Advancement, 90 Minute Accredited Online Training
May 8, 2013 at 11:00 a.m.–12:30 p.m. (ET)

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 
  • Entrepreneurs
  • 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.

Organized by: CfPA - The Center for Professional Advancement
Invited Speakers: Dr. Gary Tatterson, professor of Chemical Engineering, North Carolina A&T State University

Dr. Gary Tatterson is a professor of Chemical Engineering at North Carolina A&T State University (NC A&T SU) where he teaches full time. Specializing in plant design and various unit operations, Dr. Tatterson has taught individual specialized unit operation courses and has been teaching and consulting since 1972. His scaleup and two plant design courses at NC A&T SU follow a philosophy of fundamental and practical understanding that is important to the proper operation of multiphase processes. Gary Tatterson has written extensively in the area of multiphase processing and the application the theories of fluid and solid mechanics to such work. He has over 40 refereed publications and four books: Fluid Mixing and Gas Dispersion in Agitated Tanks (ISBN 0-9726635-2-5); Scaleup and Design of Industrial Mixing Processes(ISBN 0-9726635-1-7); Process Scaleup and Design (ISBN 0-9726635-0-9); The Business of Scaleup (ISBN 978-0-9726635-3-3).
