INVITE's contribution

The INVITE Team contributes the development of production concepts and their physical demonstration in a pilot plant. By using innovative simulation and optimization methods, INVITE develops the optimal cascade and design of different unit operations to build an optimized production process. INVITE is the link between the different sub-projects from the up- and downstream parts and for this reason INVITE plays a key role within this project.
