SuperPro Designer facilitates modeling, evaluation and optimization of integrated processes in a wide range of industries (Pharmaceutical, Biotech, Specialty Chemical, Food, Consumer Goods, Mineral Processing, Microelectronics, Water Purification, Wastewater Treatment, Air Pollution Control, etc.). The combination of manufacturing and environmental operation models in the same package enables the user to concurrently design and evaluate manufacturing and end-of-pipe treatment processes and practice waste minimization via pollution prevention as well as pollution control.

SuperPro Designer is a valuable tool for engineers and scientists in process development, process engineering, and manufacturing. It is also a valuable tool for professionals dealing with environmental issues (e.g., wastewater treatment, air pollution control, waste minimization, pollution prevention). SuperPro provides under a single umbrella modeling of manufacturing and end-of-pipe treatment processes, project economic evaluation, and environmental impact assessment.
SuperPro Designer is available for the MS Windows 2000, XP, Vista
and 7 platforms.. It requires a Pentium PC (>
800 MHz) with at least 128 MB of RAM, and
400 MB of free hard disk space.
