Special Section: Process Intensification

This special section examines several concepts that will be critical to intensifying the chemical process industries (CPI), including modularization, continuous processing, electrification, process control, and innovation.

  • A Wave of Progress for Process Intensification
  • Managing Business Risk in Modular Chemical Process Intensification
  • Continuous Manufacturing in the Pharmaceutical Industry
  • Dream or Reality? Electrification of the Chemical Process Industries
  • Achieve the Benefits of Intensification through Process Control
  • A New Approach to Industrial Innovation
