Introduction / mission

Promoting a safe, efficient and clean chemical industry by developing advanced intensified reactor concepts, through state-of-the-art fundamental knowledge, obtained by advanced reactor modelling and novel experimental techniques.

Highlighted phrase

Novel integrated reactors: from numerical models to experimental proof-of-concept

Organisation profile

The research group Chemical Process Intensification is committed to the development of novel technologies for new, robust integrated (multi-phase) processing systems that are more sustainable, highly efficient, and inherently safe. This concerns multi-functional intensified reactor concepts such as membrane reactors, chemical looping processes and sorption-enhanced processes. This includes the advancement of fundamental understanding of multiphase reacting flows.

The approach of the group is to combine state-of-the-art numerical models (at different levels of detail, adopting the multi-scale modeling approach) with advanced, non-invasive experimental techniques, and with experimental demonstration of novel reactor concepts (proof of concept). The explored concepts concern the integration of reaction and separation; integration of endothermic and exothermic reactions; and integrated heat management in chemical reactors.

UN Sustainable Development Goals

In 2015, UN member states agreed to 17 global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all. Our work contributes towards the following SDG(s):

  • SDG 2 - Zero Hunger
  • SDG 7 - Affordable and Clean Energy
  • SDG 12 - Responsible Consumption and Production
  • SDG 13 - Climate Action
