High-Throughput and Compact Chemical Processing Technologies


Cheng, M., Chevron Energy Technology Company


Tegrotenhuis, W. E., Pacific Northwest National Laboratory

In the session, we would like to promote multi-scale and system-level approach toward the cost-effective and energy-efficient chemical processes at relatively small capacity. The traditional unit operation processes is characteristic of strong scale-economy, that is, cost-prohibitive at the small processing capacity. Many emerging applications, such as biomass conversion, coal to liquid fuels, remote natural gas recovery, and waste conversion, call for distributed chemical conversion units that are economical at a capacity scale one or two orders of magnitude smaller than the typical refining and petrochemical process.
