“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
“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
"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 plays a critical role in my research group's efforts to quantify the kinetics of heterogeneous catalytic reactions, by providing reliable tools for parameter estimation, error analysis, and optimal experimental design."

"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."
