At EPC, we are well aware of the complexity of chemical plants.
Will the plant I am planning be profitable and safe? Will its capabilities meet the ever more demanding technical requirements? We at EPC are well aware of the complexity of chemical plants, so those who place their trust in the EPC engineers gain, in return, more than the complete planning of the chemical and physical processes.
Our experienced engineers base their work on the chemical formula, and devote themselves to bringing your idea to fruition, right up until the finished plant comes on stream, together with everything else that entails. We employ the latest technology to design the chemical reactions, and calculate the material and energy balances. EPC ensures that all plants and ancillary systems meet the highest safety and environmental protection requirements as a matter of course.
So you can be sure that the processes and technologies we have selected for you will not only be profitable and safe, but also save you a lot of money and worry. Why don't you find out for yourself?
We have been working with strong partners for many years to develop our processes. Renowned institutes – such as the Thuringian Institute for Textile and Plastics Research (TITK) and the Fraunhofer Institute – value their cooperation with EPC. In this way, we have built up an impressive potential for innovation. Working together with our customers, this process development has created many attractive new processes for new products. In recent years, EPC has designed and constructed a large number of research and pilot plants for various fields of application. The most recent has been the pilot carbon fibre plant at the TITK in Rudolstadt.
Simulating the crucial basic operations (e.g. reactions, rectifications, washing) of a process helps to identify and eliminate any weak points. Safety measures can be derived from the results of the simulation, and simulations also help the EPC specialists to select the most suitable technologies.
The layout of a plant depends on a wide range of constraints and conditions, for example the process requirements, the amount and arrangement of the equipment, fire and explosion protection requirements, operating and maintenance concepts, whether the plant is located in a new or existing building, open or closed architecture, and so on. In each case, EPC can develop the optimal layout for the plant and meet the customer's specific requirements. This applies to both the construction of a new plant and to the extension or revamping of an existing plant.
