This online course provides learners with a basic understanding of process intensification (PI) principles applied to reaction processes and spans the topic from a basic introduction of PI principles to emerging intensified reactor concepts. In this 4-hour course, you'll gain a fundamental introduction to basic PI principles as well as the intensification of reactive processes from a fundamental engineering perspective as well as a business perspective. Additionally, you'll learn about the intensification of reactive processes via the intensification of both heat and mass transfer. Finally, you'll review novel modes of energy transfer and activation of chemical reactions (such as radiation or electrochemical activation).
Upper level undergraduate and graduate students, plant and project managers, R&D engineers, technology managers.
