CAPE-OPEN related activities

Infochem, before being part of KBC Advanced Technologies, has realized early on the potential of CAPE-OPEN for their MultiFlash thermodynamic server.

Later on Petro-SIM has been made a CAPE-OPEN compliant Process Modelling Environment to facilitate the use of HTRI XChanger Suite in that simulator for their engineers. More recently a CAPE-OPEN Thermodynamic socket (both in version 1.0 and 1.1) has been added to Petro-SIM.

Richard SZCZEPANSKI is an active member of the UNIT Special Interest Group and contributes to the revision of the Petroleum Fractions interface specification conducted by this SIG.

KBC Advanced Technologies presented at the AIChE 2008 Annual Meeting, within the Topical Conference sponsored by CO-LaN, on the addition of a CAPE-OPEN Unit Operation socket within Petro-SIM.

Richard SZCZEPANSKI, senior advisor at KBC Advanced Technologies, attended the CAPE-OPEN 2018 Annual Meeting at BASF in Ludwigshafen, Germany.

A paper published in 2017 and co-authored by an employee of KBC Advanced Technologies (Re-evaluating the CPA EoS for improving critical points and derivative properties description) mentions that use of the CPA EoS is made easier since it has been distributed within CAPE-OPEN Thermodynamic servers.
