Continuous flow chemistry enters the laboratory
Flow chemistry is emerging as the processing technique of the future. Used for decades in the chemical industry, this technology is increasingly being adopted in the pharmaceutical and fine chemical industries. The EU-funded ENCATFLOW project aims to improve economic efficiency and reduce environmental impacts of the fine chemical industry, which is under enormous pressure to reduce the environmental cost of their products. The use of encapsulated catalysts in a flow membrane reactor offer both catalyst protection and recyclability, unlike any other currently developing technologies. This will increase European industry competitiveness and energy efficiency. The project team includes two industrial partners with expertise in flow chemistry and catalyst development, and an expert from the Energy Research Centre of the Netherlands.
