Process intensification offers a new and different paradigm in which to view applied chemical engineering. There has been much discussion on the principles of process intensification and use for more streamlined and compact process design. Join Cliff Kowall in this 60-minute webinar and consider the application and practice of these principles in a wider industrial framework:
- How are opportunities for process intensification identified and evaluated?
- Once identified, where should engineering effort be directed?
- What tools can be used to assess project risk and benefit?
Typically an intensified process offers substantial benefit in terms of lower capital cost, improved energy efficiency, reduced waste production, faster project implementation, increased flexibility of assets and greater reliability of the overall manufacturing system. The net result is greater value with less project risk. Overall the barrier of entry to both new and existing markets is reduced which translates to benefit for the entire industrial enterprise beyond the engineering and operation functions. This webinar will offer a framework and several tools for applying process intensification in an industrial commercial context.
