Welcome to the Process Systems Engineering Laboratory

The MIT Process Systems Engineering Laboratory combines the academic and industrial experience of three principal investigators. A broad program of research is conducted on the analysis, modeling, simulation, optimization, design, control, and operation of process systems. Applications are primarily to chemical, petrochemical, electrochemical, pharmaceutical, biochemical, and biomedical systems spanning length scales from the molecular to the nano- and micro-scales to very large-scale production facilities and even complete supply chains.

The three research groups are led by Paul I. Barton, Richard D. Braatz and George Stephanopoulos.
