Dinh Quang Tuyen, a chemical engineering student from the Hanoi University of Technology was announced as the winner of the 2012 Asia Pacific UniSim Design Student Challenge at the Honeywell Users Group (HUG) Asia-Pacific Symposium.

Tuyen has used the UniSim Design Suite to effectively simulate the most important conversion process used in petroleum refineries, called Fluidised Catalytic Cracking (FCC). It is expected to help to maximise the gasoline yield produced. The model was tested for accuracy by using crude oil from a Vietnamese refinery.

The student showcased his winning design to almost 300 industrial experts and manufacturing companies at the HUG Asia-Pacific symposium which took place in the Gold Coast, Australia .

Honeywell’s UniSim Design Challenge is an annual competition for university students held in conjunction with the HUG Asia-Pacific Symposium.
