NEW: Advanced Course Industrial Process and Unit Operations Scale-up
New from Harmsen Consultancy BV: Advanced Course Industrial Process and Unit Operations Scale-up. This is a 2-day Advanced Course. It takes place on the 5th and 6th of November 2019 in Capelle aan den IJssel, The Netherlands.
The programs on these course days complement each other. You can participate both days or choose either day of this course. All practical information can be found on the course page.
Why you should take this course
Fifty percent of all commercial scale process implementations fail, meaning that the commercial scale process does not meet the design goals even after a long start-up period (source Independent Process Analysis from 12 000 industrial projects). These failures can be prevented by following established scale-up methods as provided by the book: Industrial Process Scale-up, by Jan Harmsen. The course is provided by him and is based on this book.
To provide knowledge and practical experience to industrial process scale-up methods to reduce scale-up risks so that the commercial scale implementations are successful and to provide teachers a comprehensive theory of scale-up methods.
- To identify critical aspects of process and unit operations scale-up;
- Choose the best process and unit operations scale-up method for a given case;
- Make an innovation plan for a given case.

Experience of ir G.J. Harmsen on process innovation in scale-up
The course is based on industrial experience of Jan Harmsen in all stages of process innovation, i.e., research, development, design, and start-up of commercial scale processes at Shell, 1977-2010 and on providing advice and courses on sustainable process innovation and scale-up for 9 years to industry since 2010 till present.
