Help Support CPET

Financial gifts, and equipment funding and donations demonstrate leadership and provide the support necessary to ensure the LyondellBasell Center for Petrochemical, Energy, & Technology meets the dynamic requirements of business and industry. A menu of Leadership Support levels has been developed to provide interested individuals and organizations with an opportunity to contribute and participate in a manner that is appropriate for them. Each gift is provided appropriate recognition on-site and throughout all materials and marketing related to the Center.

Endowment For Quality & Sustainability: $2+ million

With the changes that constantly arise in technology and process improvements, it is critical that equipment and faculty remain current to provide the best training possible. This endowment provides a unique and ongoing opportunity to provide essential resources for equipment and technology enhancements, upgrades to remain current with industry standards, and support for faculty and staff development. Donations to this endowment will ensure that the LyondellBasell Center for Petrochemical, Energy, and Technology and its faculty and staff remain at the forefront of related business and industry trends and needs.

Glycol Distillation Unit: $2 million

Designed by industry engineers, this exterior unit will consist of a 30-foot distillation column to separate glycol and water. Included in this operating unit will be a tank farm, gas fired boiler, cooling tower, pumps, exchangers and instrumentation necessary to operate the separation process. All process unit systems will be industrial grade on an 8,000-square-foot layout. The control system and student work stations will be located indoors in the Control Room. The process control system will be Delta V. Students will operate the process unit in tandem with other students operating in the field at the Glycol Distillation Unit. Additional students will monitor and operate the system from the Control Room.

Process Simulator Lab: $1 million

Located adjacent to the Control Room, the Process Simulator Lab will allow process simulation for multiple scenarios. Process simulation uses software that creates a real-life representation of chemical, physical, and other technical processes in unit operations including refining, distillation columns, reactors, and batch processing.

Craft Training Center: $500k

The Craft Training Center offers both credit and noncredit courses for workforce development and industry contract training. Designed to be flexible, this facility will feature a high-bay industrial lab with overhead utilities and several classrooms. The new center will offer courses using nationally standardized NCCER (National Center for Construction Education and Research) curriculum such as pipefitting, millwright, boiler-making and industrial maintenance.

Skills Labs For Specific Training: $100k - $250k
