ProSim enters a partnership with DECHEMA to distribute the DETHERM database

ProSim, the French process simulation software house, enters a partnership with DECHEMA, the German Society for Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology, to distribute the DETHERM database and associated software.

The DETHERM database is the world largest factual database for raw thermo-physical property data (about 25 000 pure compounds and 100 000 mixtures covered) used for design and optimization of processes and plants. DETHERM includes the well known DDB for vapour-liquid and liquid-liquid equilibria, but also several other databases for azeotropic data, excess enthalpies, viscosities... These databases can be licensed as a whole but also separately. Furthermore, subsets of these databases for a particular application field (oil, alcohols, etc) are also available. DETHERM data are used by more than 450 customers all over the world and benefits from a strong reputation of quality in the chemical engineering domain. DETHERM software suite includes in particular DPP (Data Preparation Package) which is a powerful regression of model parameters tool able to simultaneously correlate different data types.

ProSim has agreed to promote the DETHERM database along its own process simulation packages and to leverage commercial synergies in the Europe region. "Many of our software users have significant interest in such databases and regression software, which coverage and reliability remains unmatched", explains Stéphane Déchelotte, CEO of ProSim. "Furthermore this agreement reinforces our positioning as a reference in quality thermodynamics which remains the heart of process modelling and simulation".

This agreement is the continuation of a long term relationship between the two companies that was materialized in 2006 by the coupling of ProSim's Simulis Thermodynamics (thermodynamic properties server) and the DECHEMA's DPP.

About the DECHEMA
The DECHEMA Society for Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology is a non for profit making scientific and technical society based in Frankfurt on Main/Germany. It was founded in 1926. Nowadays it has over 5000 private and institutional members. DECHEMA's interdisciplinary work brings together scientists, engineers and technologists. The society is dedicated to the support of research, teaching and technological progress in chemical engineering and biotechnology. DECHEMA serves as a network for technology transfer between research and industry, especially SME's. DECHEMA is also the organizer of ACHEMA, which is the world's most important chemical engineering exhibition congress with more than 3.900 exhibitors and 180,000 visitors.
