Process Systems Engineering Centre (PROSPECT)
Process Systems Engineering Centre (PROSPECT) is a centre of excellence that specializes in aspects of planning, design and creation on of sustainable and innovative process and product supply chain as well as optimal and efficient operation of process systems. More than 20 years experience in Process Systems Engineering (PSE) R & D, soft ware product development, consultancy services and training has positioned PROSPECT as one of the leading PSE centres of excellence in the region that specializes in process and product design and development with emphasis on conservation of natural resources; in particular, materials, energy and water.

In meeting the modern-day process engineering challenges marked by volatile energy prices and rising concern on climate change, PROSPECT strives to “engineer sustainability” by providing comprehensive and innovative solution through R & D, consultancy services and training. PROSPECT’s ultimate aim is process intensification, i.e. the creation of cleaner, safer, energy-efficient, cost-effective and sustainable process systems. PROSPECT’s tagline, “Engineering Sustainability” reflects its core philosophy and expertise in the creation and engineering of sustainable product and process systems

To date, the centre has successfully completed more than 40 research and consultancy projects in systems engineering, particularly those related to energy and utility conservation as well as renewable energy systems for various industrial sectors including palm oil and oleochemicals, agriculture (e.g. rice), refinery and petrochemicals, bio-processes, fine chemicals, semi-conductor, pulp and paper, food and drinks, cement industry as well as for buildings. Most of the accomplished R & D works have resulted in so ware product solutions, publications in premiere international journals, presentation in conferences, prestigious awards and product patents.
