Organization profile

Introduction / mission

We develop new processes based on improved mass and heat transfer rates for a more efficient, environmentally friendly, circular, and distributed production of chemicals, using new sources of raw materials and energy. SPE will lead the way to the future of chemicals production with the safest and most sustainable ways of producing chemicals.

Highlighted phrase

Developing intensified processes to open new windows

Organisational profile

Industry 4.0 will be small scale, distributed and circular. Truly changing the paradigm of chemical industry requires a unique combination of expertise, ranging from reaction engineering to separations, from photo-catalysis to electrochemical engineering and automation. Experts should truly work together towards a common goal, bringing the circular economy in the process industry to a reality.

Our group develops small scale, intensified and integrated systems for the distributed production of chemicals, with low impact and zero waste. We make use of alternative energy sources like light, electricity and bio-based sources, and we combine these in new reactors capable of continuous, high efficiency production of chemicals. We are committed to high quality research, education, and constant innovation. We set out to meet our challenging goals by connecting the talent and passion of people.
