Numerical simulation and optimizationcontributions for Air Liquide activities

Regis REAU
Directeur Scientifique, AIR LIQUIDE

Abstract : At Air Liquide, numerical simulation represents a cornerstone of the innovation chain used in order to understand, predict and optimise Air Liquide's processes and those of its clients. This approach opens up new paths for gases for industry, health and the environment. In particular, high-performance simulation allows for the better forecasting of technological changes and makes it possible for new solutions to reach the market faster. In the areas of energy and environment, it is extremely important to control an innovation from the laboratory phase through to industrial deployment via predictive numerical simulation. The range of computationally intensive simulations tools that are required is quite broad, ranging from advanced CFD, complex operational research optimization, molecular simulations to advanced process controls and real time optimization.

Biography : Régis Réau is the Scientific Director of Air Liquide R&D. He obtained his PhD in chemistry at the University of Toulouse in 1988. After a post-doc in Germany (Alexander von Humboldt Postdoctoral Fellowship), he became a CNRS researcher. In 1997, he was appointed professor at the University of Rennes-1, where he developed organic materials for optoelectronic applications. In 2001, he was elected as a junior member of the “Institut Universitaire de France.” He was the director of the Chemistry Institute of the CNRS from 2011 to 2013.
