The Thermo SIG met from 10:30 am till 12:30 (Central European Time).

Attendees: Sergej BLAGOV (BASF), Jasper van BATEN (AmsterCHEM), Mark STIJNMAN (Shell Global Solutions), Michel PONS (CO-LaN)

Outcome: The conference call was entirely dedicated to the review of the Reaction Package interface specification. The focus is on the section that summarizes the Reaction Engineering concepts that are of relevance to the design of the CAPE-OPEN interfaces addressing reactions. Little progress has been made on the issue of heat of reaction even if derivation of the necessary equations has been established.The issue is indeed difficult to tackle because of the mutliple forms the enthalpy property takes through the CAPE-OPEN interfaces.
