NMSBA Sustainable Engineering (Final Report)

Nicholson, Bethany L.; Siirola, John D.

This report summarizes the guidance provided to Sustainable Engineering to help them learn about equation-oriented optimization and the Sandia-developed software packages Pyomo and IDAESPSE. This was a short 10-week project (October 2021 – December 2021) and the goal was to help the company learn about the IDAES framework and how it could be used for their future projects. The company submitted an SBIR proposal related to developing a green ammonia process model with IDAES and if that proposal is successful this NMSBA project could lead to future collaboration opportunities.
