The field of chemical engineering, and engineering in general, is transforming. One of the facts that proves this best is a continuous upgrade and improvement of open source tools that support engineering calculations. DWSIM is one of the great examples of that change.
A research team, led by the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory in collaboration with Northern Illinois University, has discovered a new electrocatalyst that converts carbon dioxide (CO2) and water into ethanol with very high energy efficiency, high selectivity for the desired final product and low cost.
THE EU Commission has launched a call for proposals for its €1bn (US$1.1bn) Innovation Fund for large-scale low-carbon technologies, including energy storage and carbon capture.

Waste algae from municipal wastewater-treatment plants is typically sent to landfills, but a new process offered by Gen3Bio, Inc. aims to convert it into specialty chemicals using a proprietary blend of enzymes to break open — but not digest — the microalgae.
DWSIM is an open-source CAPE-OPEN compliant chemical process simulator for Windows, Linux and macOS. Includes many features previously available only on commercial simulators and is continuously improving.
The Zuckerman STEM Leadership Program supports future generations of leaders in science, technology, engineering, and math in the United States and Israel.
With the goal of enhancing the thermodynamic capabilities of open source simulation platform OpenModelica, the property database ChemSep and the thermodynamic algorithms of DWSIM have been implemented in OpenModelica.
ProSim, provider of software and services in simulation and optimization of industrial processes, announces the launch of a new software for simulating heat exchangers.
