Process Engineering Innovation and Process Intensification
15th September 2010 - University of Leeds
The UK chemicals and process equipment industries face significant challenges, especially from lower labour cost countries. Working harder will not close the gap, only working smarter will. We need better, greener and more efficient chemistry, but that is not enough. Better processes, whether by design of novel equipment, by process integration or by process intensification, requires close collaboration between the different disciplines and particularly by chemists, chemical engineers, mechanical engineers and control engineers.
In addition, there is a need for better collaboration between chemical producers and equipment suppliers, sharing know-how and risks to jointly develop new types of equipment and processes. It is not by accident that German and Swiss specialist equipment manufacturers dominate this market.
