The Laboratory of Simulation of Industrial Processes (LSIP) supports:

  • Educational activities of the undergraduate and postgraduate program of our Department.
  • Research activities on:
    • Industrial processes and natural resources management
    • product design of chemical technology and biotechnology products
  • Activities linking educational/research projects with applications that interest industrial units, public sector or privet sector.


The LSIP has been established by the P.D. 231 FEK 213/vol.Α’ /13-9-2002. It is one of the most well-organized Laboratories in Greece, as regards laboratory equipment, experienced stuff and in situ measurements using portable devices.

The Laboratory is appropriately equipped to support he educational and research needs in the sectors of:

  • experimental and computational simulation and optimization of industrial processes
  • integration of the processes found in the Greek industrial branches
  • design and development of metrological systems that monitor industrial and environmental processes
  • design and development of biotechnological products
  • scale up from laboratory to industrial scale and vice versa (scale down)
  • prototyping and standardization of production methods for products and metrological devices
  • design and development of expert systems for real time monitoring, online or offline.
  • evaluation and selection of product development technologies.
  • the basic Science supporting all the above.
