Eco-friendly production and process intensification

ChE-408

Enseignant(s) :

Renken Albert

Langue:

English

Summary

Chemical and engineering metrics are introduced to assess sustainability & ecology of chemical processes. Innovative design principles are presented allowing the design of intensified chemical production leading to waste reduction, increased reactor safety and high product quality.

Content

1. Introduction :The origin of waste, chemistry and chemical engineering metrics

2. Chemicals process routes:Synthesis route selection, catalysis in fine chemicals production

3. The importance of mixing in homogeneous systems: mixing processes & models, segregation in real reactors, influence on product distribution

4. Heat management in continuous reactors: temperature profile in "flow" micro-reactors, run away behavior, energy recuperation, coupling of endo-/exothermal reactions

5. Alternative reaction conditions & heat sources: Dynamic reactor operation, chemistry under extreme and unconventional conditions (high temperature and pressure), supercritical fluids, novel solvents, ionic liquids, microwave heating, ultrasound for mixing and reaction activation, multifunctional reactors

 

Keywords

Chemical metrics, green chemistry and engineering, process intensification, sustainable production, flow chemistry, novel process windows, structured catalysts, micro-structured reactors,
