Process intensification


This theme aims, through the development of methods and technologies, to design more compact, safer, cleaner and more economical processes whose production capacity is several times higher than that of a conventional process. Particular attention is paid to micro-structured systems, but the methodologies used allow considering varied technologies, for a wide range of applications from pharmaceutical chemistry to industrial gases. The work carried out extends from the scale of equipment, reactive or non-reactive, to the scale of the process as a whole.


- Intensification analysis of reactors and processes,
- multi-fluid exchange-reactors (design, characterization, simulation),
- batch to continuous conversion of synthesis processes,
- contactors, exchangers and structured separators,
- intensification methodologies for data acquisition and industrial production,
- experimental strategy for the choice and optimization of intensive technologies.
