Encina is an innovator at the highest level in this realm, breaking new ground with partner CPFD Software. With the help of Microsoft Azure high-performance computing (HPC), the company is designing the most powerful and promising plastic recycling solution on the horizon: circular products for a circular economy.
To advance the urgent and vital work of designing next-generation recycling facilities, Encina and CPFD ran groundbreaking simulations using CPFD’s Barracuda Virtual Reactor software. In one of the largest real-world Virtual Reactor simulations ever run, they took full advantage of an advanced system from Azure and full stack accelerated computing from NVIDIA. Azure is enabling Encina and an expanding and varied pool of companies to provide innovative sustainability products and services to customers, generating potential solutions for critical global problems.

About CPFD Software
CPFD Software is advancing multiphase simulation and technology. Our flagship product, Barracuda Virtual Reactor®, is a physics-based engineering software package that simulates the three-dimensional, transient, fluid-particle hydrodynamics, heat balance, and chemical reactions in industrial fluidized bed reactors and other fluid-particle systems.
Virtual Reactor™ enables researchers and engineers working with advanced/chemical recycling technologies to explore a broad range of ideas, reduce physical testing costs, and minimize development risk, all while accelerating commercialization, scale-up, and overall time to market. The simulation results provide an objective basis for effectively communicating technological merits to partners, customers, and investors, while increasing market exposure and bolstering patent applications.
The Virtual Reactor technology can be accessed via software licensing, services, or custom collaborative arrangements.
