RAPID, established under AIChE by the U.S. Department of Energy, focuses on addressing barriers to modular chemical process intensification deployment and enabling the development of breakthrough technologies to boost energy productivity and energy efficiency through manufacturing processes in industries such as oil and gas, pulp and paper, and chemical manufacturing. Their roadmap for process intensification highlights six focus areas: (1) Chemical & Commodity Processing; (2) Natural Gas Upgrading; (3) Renewable Bioproducts; (4) Modeling and Simulation; (5) Intensified Process Fundamentals; (6) Module Manufacturing. RAPID hosts call for proposals, anticipated about once per year, and a number of projects and events throughout the year. View the Institute’s efforts to create effective collaborations that result in breakthrough technologies and equipment in their first annual report.
