The project integrates physical chemistry and chemical engineering research for developing new super-ambient processes based on gas-liquid-solid contacting. It represents reorientation of R&D potential of the Centre activities towards the advanced fields of multiphase systems under extreme conditions. Such systems are important for the chemical, pharmaceutical, food and steel industry, as well as for the production of new materials of desired properties. The inovation is based on further intensification of all hitherto existing contacts and links of the Centre with academia and industry in Europe. The activity will result in the initiation of genuine networking in the field and preparation of further joint project proposals in the research of multiphase reacting systems.
