Process Intensification (PI) refers to the transformation of a chemical process to make it significantly more efficient in terms of reduced energy consumption, fewer unit operations, smaller volume or footprint for a given capacity etcetera. PI is usually implemented through design of new equipment that combines multiple unit operations or design of new process-intensifying methods, e.g., new reaction routes (using new catalysts), use of innovative solvents, alternative forms of energy, microreactors, integrated processes (e.g. reactive or hybrid separations) or new (e.g. dynamic) operating modes. Microprocess engineering is a type of process intensification that focuses more on chemical or physical processes at micro-scales and novel equipment designs to achieve the same. Papers on practical implementations as well as methodological contributions are welcome.
