CPFD Software is glad to announce that it has entered into a 2-year software licensing contract with ENEA of Italy. ENEA will use CPFD Software’s Barracuda Virtual Reactor simulation software for the simulation of a dual fluidized bed (DFB) system. The objective of the DFB is the production of hydrogen intensified by the CO2 capture via solid sorbent.
ENEA has already been part of the global Barracuda Virtual Reactor user community through previous collaborations with CPFD, aimed at the modelling of several components of the EU research infrastructure ZECOMIX (Zero Emissions of Carbon with Mixed technologies).
We are pleased to support ENEA in their goals though our local distributor, OMIQ srl.
ENEA is the National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development, a public body aimed at research, technological innovation and the provision of advanced services to enterprises, public administration and citizens in the sectors of energy, the environment and sustainable economic development.
ENEA has highly qualified personnel, advanced laboratories, experimental facilities and excellent instruments for the realization of projects, studies, tests, assessments, analyses and training services, with particular reference to product and process innovation and the valorization of results to contribute to the development and competitiveness of the national economic system.
Since its foundation in the 1960s, its strengths have been applied research, technology transfer and technical-scientific support to companies, associations, territories, central and local administrations: for this reason – unlike other research institutions – the Agency depends on the Ministry of Economic Development.
Its focus sectors are energy technologies (renewable sources, energy storage, smart grids), for which the Agency is also the coordinator of the Energy National Technology Cluster, nuclear fusion and nuclear safety (the Agency is the reference national research coordinator), energy efficiency (with the National Agency for Energy Efficiency), technologies for cultural heritage, seismic protection, food safety, pollution, life sciences, strategic raw materials, climate change.
Among the emerging issues, ENEA supports the productive system as well as public authorities (Ministry of environment and Ministry of economic development in particular) in the transition towards the circular economy and the resource efficiency.
OMIQ srl is the Barracuda Virtual Reactor distributor for Italy. A software engineering company focused on vertical simulation solutions founded by two Italian engineers with a passion for simulation and design.
OMIQ’s mission is to provide help to companies focused on innovation, looking to improve their design process and optimise their products.
About CPFD Software
CPFD Software is advancing multiphase simulation and technology. Our flagship product, Barracuda Virtual Reactor, is a physics-based engineering software package capable of predicting fluid, particulate-solid, thermal and chemically reacting behavior in fluidized bed reactors and other fluid-particle systems reducing the risk associated with design, scale-up, commercialization, and trouble-shooting of industrial processes. The Virtual Reactor technology is accessible through software licensing, consulting, or engineering services.
