The modelling tools we use are applicable to different physical systems. Therefore, BIOMATH has implemented its expertise in different domains of industrial or governmental interest. In fact, similar challenges are encountered across these sectors which stimulates cross-fertilization of knowledge. For each of the domains, most of the current design and operational strategies are based on expert knowledge which is limited to empirical formulations which are not generic in nature. The simulation studies performed at BIOMATH are aimed at creating mechanistic knowledge for each of the processes studied. Resulting in optimised process conditions which are generally applicable.
