process intensification transforming chemical engineering
In 1995, while opening the 1st International Conference on Process Intensification in the Chemical Industry, Ramshaw, one of the pio- neers in the field, defined process intensifica- tion as a strategy for making dramatic reduc- tions in the size of a chemical plant so as to …
Process Intensification: Transforming Chemical Engineering. Process intensification emerged as a special and interesting discipline of Chemical Engineering defined as a strategy leading to a substantially smaller, cleaner, and more energy efficient technology, cutting the number of unit operations or equip- ment involved .
Chemical Engineering and Processing – Process Intensification. Multidisciplinary papers and contributions from other disciplines, such as materials science, applied physics, electronics, fluid mechanics or energy technology, having impact on intensification of the chemical process industry are …
In contrast, process intensification (PI) is uniquely tied to the fundamental principles of chemical engineering. In a nutshell, it is the application of the best possible technology solutions to classic problems in transport phenomena, reaction engineering, and separation science.

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
