National Engineering Research Center of Distillation Technology (NERCDT)

National Engineering Research Center of Distillation Technology is entitled by National Planning Commission. Based on Tianjin University, the center is set up to improve China’s low-tech, energy intensive and high-polluting distillation industry by developing new distillation process and fractionation devices through technology transfer as well as developing and industrializing technologies of process control, diagnosis, simulation and amplification.

Taking Tianjin University’s research advantages in chemical engineering, the center develops new theories, techniques, processes and devices and promotes important scientific and technological achievements into engineering application as well as provides technical support for large scale, low unit consumption and high quality separation in petroleum refining, ethylene, new energy, coal chemical, green chemical and environmental protection industries in China.

The center has more than 200 advanced test instruments and various laboratories like Laboratory of Key Separation Technologies in Large-scale Oil and Ethylene Refining, Laboratory of High Purity Polycrystalline Silicon Precise Separation, Laboratory of Natural Product Fine Separation, Laboratory of Key Technologies and Devices for Oil-sand Separation, Laboratory of Soils and Groundwater Remediation, and Multi-function Testing Analysis Platform. Also, a set of advanced chemical process simulation and computational fluid dynamics software is broadly used in the center’s theoretical researches, process simulation, hydrodynamic calculation and strength checking calculation, etc.

Taking the advantages in the field of chemical separation, the center conducts engineering implementation researches in multiple fields, spanning chemical separation, chemical reaction, environmental chemical engineering, new energy and materials engineering, together with Chinese Academy of Science (Institute of Process Engineering, Institute of Metal Research), Sinopec Research Institute of Petroleum Processing, Sinopec Research Institute of Petroleum and Petrochemicals, universities and other research institutions.

The center conducts extensive international academic communications and joint researches with universities and research institutions in U.S.A., Canada, U.K. and Russia. It is the owner of nearly a hundred National Invention Patent, and has won Scientific Technology Advance Award of the National, Ministry of Education and Tianjin City for many times.

Peiyang National Distillation Technology Engineering Development CO., LTD., which is subordinate to Tianjin University, is also an affiliate company of the center. As a professional manufacturer and industry leader of towers and internals, the company carries out broad cooperation with the country’s biggest petroleum, chemical, coal chemical, medicine enterprises and petrochemical engineering companies. The company also has an enterprise's post-doctoral work station authorized by Ministry of Personnel, and has already established s talent cultivation and scientific research system for undergraduate, postgraduate, PhD students and postdoctoral researchers.
