An Organization for Research Transfer in Computer Aided Process Engineering & Plant Technology for Energy and Material Conversion

 

AixCAPE® e.V. is a not-for-profit consortium with focus on facilitating new technologies and on speeding up innovation transfer in the area of Computer Aided Process Engineering & Plant Technology for Energy and Material Conversion. While universities combine their expertise and resources in the field of methodology research, application-oriented research and software prototype development form the core tasks of AixCAPE®. The consortium has been founded in 2002 as a spin-off from the Chair of Process Systems Engineering at RWTH Aachen University. Many of the worldwide leading chemical and petrochemical companies are members of the consortium which is in the process of attracting new member companies. AixCAPE® is also actively inviting other leading research universities to join and efficiently promote the transfer of their innovations within the AixCAPE® network together with the member companies.
