Process/Chemical Engineering


Our team of Chartered Chemical & Process Engineers collectively have a broad experience of numerous different industries including Biomass, Waste-to-Energy, Gasification, Pyrolysis, Combustion, Biofuels, Distillation, Minerals & Mining, Research & Development, Water Treatment, Manufacturing, Pharmaceutical, Chemical, and Food Sectors. This experience includes both operational experience and the design and implementation of projects for companies around the globe.

Emerald Energy can help you evaluate or develop new or existing processes, provide expert advice on new Renewable Energy ventures or existing processes, model and understand the design and performance of your plant, and help you evaluate options for process routes, energy efficiency and effluent treatment etc.

Our team of Chemical, Process, Environmental & Project Engineers & Industrial Chemists can provide technical support for numerous applications spanning many industries to solve process, environmental & energy problems.

Our team can offer Chemistry, Chemical & Environmental Engineering Consultancy & Expert Witness Services. EEC & partners with their combined team of Chemists & Engineers offer a wide range of gas, liquid & solid problem solving skills whether for environmental, energy & product recovery or process debottlenecking

We also have an in-depth appreciation of the technologies commercially available in the Renewable Energy sector, hands-on operational experience of these technologies & knowledge of their layout and land-use requirements, how much they cost to build and operate & effective ways to procure, finance and construct such projects. Our skills are grounded in core engineering principles, actual operational practice and a wide ranging experience of the challenges and opportunities which exist in this challenging but exciting market.
