Planet Earth is facing challenges with respect to energy, water, food, and the environment, and significant improvements in efficiencies of new and existing processes are needed to meet these challenges. Process intensification (PI) has been identified as a means to achieve these improvements and create innovative and more sustainable solutions.
PI, however, can mean a lot of different things. For example, PI can be achieved through: alternative reaction paths; improved species allocation; increased thermodynamic efficiency through heat and power management; altering rate- (and size-) determining mechanisms; alternative equipment configurations; scale-up or scale-down or modularity considerations; and operability, safety, and controllability analysis.
Computer-aided process intensification (CAPI) refers to the use of systematic model-based techniques to determine and analyze PI solutions...
