Process Improvement and Innovation Via Intensification


Enright, T., Xerox Research Centre of Canada


Feist, S. D., The Dow Chemical Company

One means of defining Process Intensification (PI) is using innovative engineering to improve the performance of chemical processes. This innovation can come from a number of areas that result in reduction of processing cost, capital, and complexity. This specific session is focused on success stories of innovative ways to achieve process intensification, especially on the commercial scale. Examples can include but are not limited to converting batch to continuous processes, increasing process throughput via incorporation of novel processing steps, increasing process performance or reducing capital through novel intensified unit operations, and/or making chemistry/solvent modifications resulting in process improvements.
