Integrated Multiscale Process Units with Locally Structured Elements

Objective

IMPULSE aims at effective, targeted integration of innovative process equipment such as microreactors, compact heat exchangers, thin-film devices and other micro and/or meso-structured components, to attain radical performance enhancement for whole proces s, thereby contributing to significant improvement in supply-chain sustainability for the chemical industry. IMPULSE offers new opportunities by encouraging the use of flexible, integrated equipment and process units with appropriately targeted multiscale structuring. The IMPULSE approach represents a PARADIGM SHIFT in chemical engineering : Rather than adapting operating conditions to equipment limitations, IMPULSE proposes to adapt the equipment, structure and process architecture to enable achievemen t of the most desirable operating conditions for a given physicochemical transformation. Impulse goals include proof of principle in several supply-chain sectors (pharma, fine chemicals, consumer goods), validated business models (e. g., distributed prod uction, mass customization, etc.), teachable generic design methodology and optimization and decision criteria for ecoefficiency.
