The thesis describes modelling and optimization work of an industrial ammonia synthesis. Author developed first-principle mathematical model of the commercial converter based on gas-solid reaction and heat transfer within the system. The model is validated with industrial data and showed satisfactory accuracy. Further, optimization study is performed in multi-objective manner to intensify ammonia production and decrease heat duty of the process. Result have revealed a potential to improve current operating condition int terms of both objectives.
