Boosting resource efficiency of P&P processes – improved efficiency in process design and tailored modelling lifecycle management solutions

Commonly steady-state process simulation is considered to be expensive and cannot reliably support daily engineering and operations decision making. This results mainly from lack of competences and the time investments needed in the modelling and simulation. Balas takes a novel approach to support pulp and paper industry process design and optimisation problem solving. Our solutions support continuous increase in value and appreciation of models. This is achieved by better model database management and enabling transition and connectivity between platforms in design and optimisation tasks during the entire lifecyle of the processes.

Taking full benefit of the know-how built into existing models is our core value

Our software products enable steady-state simulation of all P&P industry processes and other biorefining processes. Our modelling lifecyle services include simulation and modelling capacity building and maintenance, and model database management.
