With more solar and wind energy being produced, sustainable electricity supply is constantly increasing. This could offer great opportunities for the chemical industry. The supply of sustainable energy today would bring increases in energy costs, but it can also offer numerous opportunities to develop new, more efficient processes. Process intensification (PI) methodologies are key to establishing these new designs in our process industries. Considering the applicability available, we may innovate industrial processes from idea to commercial-scale implementation. This webinar addresses the main issues of electrification and process innovation practices, plus, aims to identify the main bottlenecks to go to a CO2 neutral chemical industry.
In this 60-minute webinar, you’ll learn of the benefits of applying industrial innovation practices and the many applications of electrification and process intensification in process industries.
What you’ll learn:
- What is electrification of the Chemical industry and what are the challenges?
- Can the Chemical Industry become CO2 neutral by 2050?
- In which areas will electrification make an impact?
- How can PI assist with electrification?
- Industrial process innovation practices

Prof. dr. ir. Kevin Van Geem received his Master and Ph.D. at Ghent University in Belgium. Under the supervision of Prof. Guy B. Marin he performed research on thermochemical conversion processes and in particular on steam cracking of hydrocarbons. Detailed kinetic modelling, simulation of the hot and cold section of steam crackers, coke formation/fouling, and the role of additives are among his expertise. More recently Prof. Van Geem focused also on thermochemical conversion of biomass and on the combustion behaviour of renewable fuels. He is a Fulbright postdoctoral fellow of the...Read more
