Organization profile

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

Organisational 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.
