In today’s world, external pressures and advances in adjacent technology areas are creating the need to reassess classical unit operations and look for more efficient solutions for the process industries. The topic of Process Intensification (PI) has attracted considerable attention as a potential means for process improvement. In this interactive online course, the RAPID Manufacturing Institute delves into the Fundamentals of Process Intensification and provides insight into PI and its deployment. This is not only a comprehensive introductory course but also the first of its kind in the U.S. to describe PI concepts in practical ways that will enable engineers and future engineers to explore PI as a promising technology solution, which can help American industry become leaner, greener, cleaner and safer.

In this course, you’ll get an introduction to PI, ways in which PI can help to overcome challenges facing conventional processes, and ultimately its potential role in transforming the process industries. You will also explore ways in which PI can be applied to fundamental engineering concepts as well as current examples of PI that have been deployed. Lastly, you will learn about Modular Chemical Process Intensification (MCPI) technologies and equipment that can potentially transform facilities and operations by reducing costs and other inefficiencies.
