Klavs Jensen on Accelerating Development and Intensification of Chemical Processes

Jim Bielenberg, Chief Technology Officer of the RAPID Manufacturing Institute, met with Klavs Jensen to discuss his presentation "Accelerating Development and Intensification of Chemical Processes."

Klavs Jensen, Warren K. Lewis Professor of Chemical Engineering and Materials Science and Engineering at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, delivered the prestigious John M. Prausnitz AIChE Institute Lecture at the 2018 AIChE Annual Meeting in Pittsburgh.

In his lecture, Jensen discussed how process intensification techniques — coupled with automated optimization and screening of production candidates — offer opportunities for faster development and more efficient chemical production, particularly in industries with diverse product bases, such as the specialty chemicals and pharmaceuticals industries.

The Prausnitz AIChE Institute lectureship is awarded to a distinguished member of the Institute who has made significant contributions to the chemical engineering sciences in his or her field of specialization. The lectureship is endowed by the AIChE Foundation and is named in honor of John Prausnitz, Professor of Chemical Engineering at the Univ. of California, Berkeley, who pioneered the field of engineering-oriented molecular thermodynamics.
