Process engineering involves the integration of reactions, technologies, efficiency rates, and mass & energy flow rates in the development of process design packages.  Process design packages provide all the required information, data, specifications, conditions, and designs for the construction and operation of a fully integrated bio-refining facility:

Process engineering packages translate physical, bio-chemical, mechanical, & engineering principals and technologies into profitable commercial reality.

Bio-Process Group provides staged process engineering packages for industrial biomass processing facilities.  The staged development of the process engineering allows the owners and partners to make informed decisions on the projects definition, scope, scale, risks, and options- minimizing development time, risks and expenses.
