#354 - Microreactors: Applications for Chemical Production (12E00)
Microreactor Processing may reduce the total volume of potentially hazardous materials, improve control of very fast and/or dangerous reactions, lead to modular and flexible plant design, or enable novel chemistry not possible with traditional reactors. Discuss single or multi-phase systems and their exergetic, legislative, financial or environmental benefits. Topics might include reaction kinetics, or transpoert phenomena involving various driving forces. Heterogeneous reactions, solid-liquid separation, and phase separation may also be discussed. Discussion in context of entire flowsheet is most welcome.
