Chemical Engineering, Karlstad University (KaU), Karlstad
Course description/Content: The course is of overview type and consists of class room lectures, computer simulations, an assignment carried out together with team colleagues, a mill visit and a final written examination.
Learning objectives: The student will after the course have a good knowledge about process changes that affect the sodium/sulfur balance. He/she will also be able to make simulations of how much a process change will influence the sodium/sulfur balance for a given mill. The student will finally have a better general understanding of the existing process chemistry in a pulp mill.
