Process Intensification (PI) refers to the transformation of a chemical process to significantly improve efficiency in terms of reduced energy consumption, fewer unit operations, smaller volume or footprint for a given capacity etcetera. PI is usually implemented through design of new equipment that combines multiple unit operations or design of new process-intensifying methods, e.g., new reaction routes (using new catalysts), use of innovative solvents, alternative forms of energy, microreactors, integrated processes (e.g. reactive or hybrid separations) or new (e.g. dynamic) operating modes. Papers on enhancing heat and mass transfer, applications to process intensification, practical implementations, and methodological contributions are welcome.
