Authors 

Calverley, T. - Presenter, The Dow Chemical Company
Despite more than a century of developments in chemical processing, large opportunities for energy and atom efficiency remain. Increasing population means that demand for products of the industry will continue to grow, posing a challenge to shrink the environmental footprint per unit of production.

This talk will examine some of the process improvement opportunities of interest to Dow and how we have attempted to address them. In addition to highlighting some success stories, the talk will present some of the barriers we encounter when attempting to innovate and intensify process technologies.
