Challenges and innovations in chemical reaction engineering
Process improvements, new technology and innovations are required to address the driving forces and technical challenges faced by the refining, chemical and petrochemical industries. Economically speaking, R&D projects must be executed with a high degree of efficiency and, from a scientific standpoint; we must produce top quality results. In other words, we must produce more and better results with a shorter time between lab and industrial implementation; This is, obviously, an extremely difficult but not impossible task. This is primarily achieved by: Emphasizing process intensification through multi-functional reactors, integrating catalysis and reaction engineering, Promoting collaborations through strategic R&D.
