In early phase chemical process project lifecycles, there are many alternative and promising process routes/designs. All of them have various degrees of unknowns and uncertainties. This webinar highlights a practical approach on how to synthesize chemical processes, what to consider, how to analyze the unknowns and the uncertainties, what needs to be done in the next stages, and how to select which process to carry forward to the next stage of the project. The workflow is based on a well-known stage-gate approach.
