"Fast and versatile. Athena lets us carry out complex mathematical and chemical analyses with ease. The standout features are the parameter estimation and the excel link"
Siddarth Sitamraju, PhD - Sr. Modeling Scientist
"My Athena experience applies to testing and prediction of catalyst & sorbent performance. Linking Athena to Excel creates easily accessible models for commercial people in the organization. In that way modeling generates a daily business impact beyond research and innovation."
Johan J. Heiszwolf - R&D Director
"For us Athena for is an essential tool for propriety model development and distribution. In our applications Athena proved to be very robust in large parameter estimation tasks. We benefitted from the easy way of adding own Fortran code. Distribution of the developed models by means of Excel DLL's pushed the use of models throughout R&D and Sales departments. Fast and to the point support of Michael himself was very helpful".

“Athena Visual Studio is an excellent tool for our PhD and MSc research and education for Food Technology students. It’s extremely versatile for estimation parameters of processes and (bio)chemical reactions related to food.”
Dr. ir. Matthijs Dekker - Associate Professor Food Quality and Design Group Department of Agrotechnology and Food Sciences
"Athena enables Dow to export models to our flow sheet simulation software or to call modules of that software from within the Athena environment seamlessly, enabling easy technology transfer from lab to plant. The FORTRAN platform of Athena also enables us to access our proprietary physical properties database."

“Athena Visual Studio combines strong and efficient numerical solvers with straightforward syntax coding and GUI. This allows also non-experts to solve complex chemical engineering problems. I am a happy user of the package for both consultancy and teaching since almost 20 years.”
Rob Berger - Consultant in Catalysis & Reactor Engineering and Reaction Kinetics
“In our work of chemical conversion and storage of energy, Athena Visual Studio has been an important tool already for years; we have successfully used this software in several PhD theses at the Swiss technical universities. For us, the most important aspect is - besides the numerical quality - the fact that one tool covers all our problems from parameter estimation in the evaluation of kinetic data from the laboratory up to rate based models of catalytic reactors which are validated by pilot scale data and applied in thermo-economic process chain analyses.”
T.J. Schildhauer - Senior Scientist in the Laboratory for Thermal Processes
Paul Scherrer Institut, Switzerland
“Athena Visual Studio is a powerful yet convenient tool for Chemical Engineering practitioners to use for the development of Differential and Algebraic Equation (DAE) models for simulation purpose. Additionally, built upon classical theoretical foundation laid out by the late Professor Warren Stewart at the University of Wisconsin, Athena Visual Studio provides the most robust parameter estimation toolbox, GREGPLUS, that the user has ever used to estimate parameters using experimental data in my industrial practice. I strongly recommend this tool to anyone who has the need to develop models and conduct parameter estimation in chemical industry."
Min Zhang - Axalta Coating Systems
"The Athena visual software is a powerful tool that allows our group estimate parameters for many different adsorption isotherm models and model the separation process of gas mixtures. With the user-friendly interface it is convenient to build models."
