Process intensification (PI) methodologies are key to establishing new designs in our process industries. Considering the applicability available, we may innovate industrial processes from idea to commercial-scale implementation. This webinar addresses systematic general PI design theory and process innovation practices, plus, aims to identify the numerous designing processes with PI methods. 

In this 60-minutes webinar, you’ll learn of the benefits of applying industrial innovation practices and the many applications of process intensification in process industries. Attendees will become aware of the systematic design methods for process intensification.

What you’ll learn:

  • PI definition and difference with conventional chemical engineering
  • PI design domain steps
  • PI technologies classifications
  • Industrial process innovation practices

This webinar is part of ongoing Education & Workforce Development efforts of the RAPID Manufacturing Institute. Webinars are free to RAPID Members.
