DEDC provides process engineering and process design for multi-discipline process projects. Whether you are planning a completely new process plant/tank farm, or contemplating an expansion or upgrade of your existing facilities, DEDC can effectively serve your needs.

Our staff of chemical engineers and process designers is supported by a complement of disciplines including mechanical, electrical, instrumentation, structural, piping, and controls. The result is a consulting partner who brings our clients planning and design experience with the process itself, as well as the facility which houses it.

This dedicated team is experienced in the entire life cycle of process engineering – plant and process feasibility, process development, process design and process optimization.
