BALAS is a steady state simulation package for chemical processes with emphasis on pulp and paper.

Process design and analysis is always based on the management of mass and energy balances. BALAS simulation tool is the most effective way to obtain information on the behaviour of an existing process and get a deeper understanding of the interactions in your process. Built-in link to MS Excel enables easy transfer and customised visualisation of simulation data. Modelhierarchy, extensive unit operation, and chemical component libraries in connection with effective mathematical solvers make BALAS the solution for simulation of steadystate and tank dynamics, optimisation, and parameter estimation for pulp and paper processes. BALAS is developed and owned by VTT.
