As industry begins to embrace the potential of Process Intensification (PI), process and chemical engineers need both guidance and support in selecting equipment appropriate to these new intensified technologies and how they work with their targeted applications. Speaker Christophe Gourdon focuses on the characteristics of intensified technologies according to various criteria, such as: pressure drop, residence time, mixing, heat and mass transfer performances, scalability, etc.

In addition, benchmark studies and their implications are also discussed. Finally, some examples are provided to demonstrate the way the methodology works leading to the purchase or design of enabling equipment.

In this 60-minute webinar, you will learn:

  • The Process Intensification (PI) Toolbox
  • A Methodology for Equipment Selection
  • PI Benchmark Studies and Their Importance
  • An Example of a Methodology Application


Christophe Gourdon

Christophe Gourdon, Professor in Chemical Engineering at the University of Toulouse, Fr., is since nearly 20 years an expert in the field of Process Intensification (PI) and micro- milli-technologies. He created in 2007 an industrial platform ( for pilot and benchmark tests promoting various PI technologies. In 2009, he was one of the co-founders of the european industrial network EUROPIC (, where he is regularly  delivering a course and webinar sessions on the...Read more
