Special Section: Process Intensification

This special section presents four new applications of modular chemical process intensification (MCPI) outside the original area of emphasis. The articles explore renewable ammonia production, advanced processing of biobased feedstocks, membrane separation of pulp-and-paper byproducts, and nuclear power generation.

  • Extending the Reach of Modularization and Process Intensification

  • Renewable Ammonia for a Sustainable Energy Future

  • Advanced Preprocessing Systems for Conversion-Ready Feedstocks

  • Biorefinery Separations with Graphene Oxide Membranes

  • Advances in Very Small Modular Nuclear Reactors
