"More than a decade ago, Dow selected Athena Visual Studio to replace our internally developed modeling and parameter estimation tool. Based on our assessment, Athena was and is the best tool for chemical reaction engineers developing models of reaction kinetics with parameters fit to experimental data."

“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."

"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."

"Pursuing an adequate balance between physical meaning and statistical significance’, that’s what a lot of chemical engineering activities are about and what is particularly well supported by Athena Visual Studio"

“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.”
