CPFD Software has been invited to speak at BASF’s FCC Fundamentals & Optimization Seminar 2023, May, 2-4, 2023. VP of Engineering Peter Loezos will be discussing FCC simulation technology.
About Peter Loezos
Peter is VP Engineering at CPFD with 18 years’ experience in the development and commercialization of new processes for the refining and petrochemical industries. His previous experience includes technology development roles in ExxonMobil, SABIC and Lummus Technology where he had a specific emphasis on fluidization engineering. Peter has a PhD in Chemical Engineering from Princeton University where his research included the development of CFD sub-grid models for gas-particle flow applications.
About CPFD Software
CPFD Software is advancing multiphase simulation and technology. Our flagship product, Barracuda Virtual Reactor®, is a physics-based engineering software package that simulates the three-dimensional, transient, fluid-particle hydrodynamics, heat balance, and chemical reactions in industrial fluidized bed reactors and other fluid-particle systems.
We assist refineries worldwide by addressing FCCU problems related to emissions, catalyst circulation, erosion/reliability, afterburn, and catalyst losses, reducing the risk associated with troubleshooting or planning changes to the FCCU or components. The same technology is also utilized for other downstream applications including ebullated bed reactors, plastic recycling technologies, polyolefin production, catalytic dehydrogenations systems, and more.
The Virtual Reactor technology can be accessed via software licensing, services, or custom collaborative arrangements
