Green Chemistry: From Chemical Reaction to Process Design and Operation
Currently Published: Book on Integrated Chemical Processes in Liquid Multiphase Systems
This book summarizes the results obtained over twelve years in the DFG-funded collaborative project Transregio 63 “Integrated Chemical Processes in Liquid Multiphase Systems”. In an interdisciplinary approach to the design and operation of chemical processes, essential principles of Green Chemistry are realized, such as using long-chain olefins as model representatives of renewable raw materials, highly efficient catalysts, and green solvents, linked with process optimization to improve energy and material efficiency.
In this large project, usage of renewable feedstock and waste streams as raw materials to substitute feedstock from fossil source was investigated. Experts from different fields addressed all steps of the development process, from the description of the reactions on the molecular level via thermodynamics and the design of efficient separation processes to the operation of chemical plant s for liquid multiphase production processes.
Engineers and chemists from the chemical industry as well as advanced students and researchers will get valuable insights into the physico-chemical phenomena in chemical multiphase processes and benefit from advances concerning methods for the selection of phase systems and rapid model-based process development.
Partners in this collaborative project were among others the Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg, Technical University Berlin, Technical University Dortmund and MPI Magdeburg
The project was funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) from 2010-2022.
