#200 - Advances in Process Intensification I (12001)
Papers on Reaction and Separation, Novel Reactors (such as microreactors and monolithic reactors), the use of alternative energy forms, Bioprocessing, and the application of Novel Materials with a link to Process Intensification are welcome. Process Intensification is the term used to describe the means by which a chemical process can be made drastically more efficient. Significant intensification of a process requires a holistic view in order to identify and eliminate the main transport resistances that limit the overall performance. In order to meet this definition, changes in thinking involve the design of new machinery and hardware and consideration of the chemistry, process design, and logistics.
