- Solid-vapor-liquid streams with inert solid phase;
- Native implementation for the Non-Random Two Liquids (NRTL) activity coefficient model;
- Sparse linear solver;
- Automatic sequencing for sequential resolution of flowsheets;
- Support for parallel execution on multicore workstations;
- Biomass components defined in terms of elemental analysis and Lower Heating Value (LHV).
