Process Intensification (PI) is an engineering expression that refers to the transformation of a chemical process to make it significantly more efficient in terms of relevant process performance figures (e.g. energy consumption and cost-effectiveness). PI requires a holistic view in order to identify and eliminate the main resistances that limit the overall process performance. Options for PI can be identified and realized on different scales of a chemical process and include e.g. the realization of new reaction routes (using new catalysts), the use of innovative solvents, alternative forms of energy, novel (e.g. structured) reactors, integrated processes (e.g. reactive or hybrid separations) or new (e.g. dynamic) operating modes. In this session, a special focus is on process integration as a promising option for process intensification.
