International Process Intensification Conference


Process intensification is transforming chemical engineering processes and plants. New targets replace traditional guidelines in process design: substantial improvement of the equipment size/production ratio and severe reduction of energy consumption and waste generation. By using new technologies, process intensification proves to be successful to produce more compact, safer, sustainable and energy-efficient equipment and processes. The First International Process Intensification Conference ...
