Expert in process engineering

Use sciences to solve real-world engineering problems

For over 15 years, CASPEO helps engineers and scientists to enhance their plants processing complex raw materials. Expert in process engineering, we deliver process simulation software and independent consulting services for various industries. Our goal: help you to find the most cost-effective option to design and improve your process. Discover our unique approach in process engineering, beyond process simulation.

Our story began in the mineral processing industry

CASPEO is a French SME created in 2004 by Marie-Véronique Durance and Stéphane Brochot, expert in process engineering and IT.

Spin-off of BRGM, the French geological survey, the raison d’être of CASPEO was to offer to the mining industry methods and computational tools, fruit of years of research: “ sciences to enhance your resources ”.

This is how CASPEO became a reference in the mineral processing industry.

Today, CASPEO serves various markets such as mining and metallurgy, biomass and food processing, solid waste treatment and other processing industries.

More than 300 customers worldwide have choosen CASPEO as engineering expert: processing plants, engineering firms, R&D centers as well as universities. And you?

CASPEO - Let's go beyond process simulation

Sciences to achieve operational excellence

We believe sciences may solve real-world engineering problems.

We think process simulation, well applied, improves the plant design and its efficiency, profitability and sustainability.

Our strength: a multi-disciplinary approach based on mathematical modeling, chemical and process engineering and IT.

Empower your decision beyond traditional process simulation

  • A unique approach…

CASPEO know-how consists not only in process modeling and simulation. Our approach goes beyond simulation. We believe to support decision-making, accurate data being the key. That is why we also propose sampling, data reconciliation, mass balancing and piping software and expertise.

Another aspect of our approach: to characterize both material and unit operations at a whole.

  • … Allowing to deal with complex and variable raw materials

Based on our experience with solids, we have transferred our approach to any process industry dealing with materials that are difficult to model: ores, food and feed, waste, mixtures…
