PROSYS originally joined CO-LaN as CAPEC. PROSYS was created in June of 2014 as a result of the merger between the Computer Aided Process Engineering Center (CAPEC) and the Center for Process Engineering and Technology (PROCESS)


  • Establish CAPEC as a center of excellence for research & education in computer aided process engineering (CAPE) and process systems engineering (PSE).
  • Establish a consortium of industrial member companies.
  • Develop of state of the art technologies in the area of CAPE/PSE through collaboration/partnership with industrial member companies & academic institutions.
  • Partnerships with Nordic CAPE/PSE centers.
  • Efficient but flexible management with emphasis on education, research & service to industrial member companies.
  • Play a leading role in the national and international chemical engineering & CAPE/PSE communities.

CAPEC was a member of the Global CAPE-OPEN project and a founding Member of CO-LaN.

As of January 1, 2021, PROSYS is an Associate Member in Group C as per the bylaws adopted on October 15, 2020.


Professor GANI was the representative of CAPEC in CO-LaN since CAPEC joined and till Professor GANI retired from DTU at the end of 2017.

CAPE-OPEN related activities

CAPEC/PROSYS conducted several research projects involving CAPE-OPEN and published:

Interoperability between Modelling Tools (MoT) with Thermodynamic Property Prediction Packages (Simulis® Thermodynamics) and Process Simulators (ProSimPlus) Via CAPE-OPEN Standards, together with ProSim SA.

Use of CAPE-OPEN standards in the interoperability between modelling tools (MoT) and process simulators (Simulis® Thermodynamics and ProSimPlus), also together with ProSim SA.
