NSF Workshop on Process Intensification
The goal of this two-day workshop was to identify theoretical challenges and practical open questions in the area of Process Intensification (PI), and initiate some funding opportunities.
The final report from this workshop is now available.
The objective of the workshop was to be a colloquium where the main contributions in the area of process intensification would be discussed and the challenges identified. Bringing together academic and industrial participants, the workshop provided a unique forum to identify the existing successes and future opportunities in the process area.
The workshop consisted of four presentation sessions including one general session covering the main concepts of PI, and three application sessions including PI opportunities for different industrial sectors, such as chemical, petrochemical, energy, and pharmaceutical. It also highlighted advances in the fundamental sciences of reaction engineering, separation processes and environmental engineering.
Participants were asked to complete a questionnaire providing input regarding the challenges and opportunities in PI, how their research fit into this area, and how the Smart Manufacturing initiative can interact with activities in PI. The report summarizes input received through the questionnaires, and from workshop presentations and discussions.
