An overview of the F³ Factory aims, objectives and technical challenges will be presented during a session on European projects at the 19th International Congress of Chemical and Process Engineering (CHISA) and 7th European Congress of Chemical Engineering (ECCE) 2010.
The European Projects session is one of eleven parallel events to be held during the joint CHISA/ECCE Congress in Prague, Czech Republic from 28 August to 1 September this year. The F³ Factory will feature alonside two complimentary FP7 funded pojects: COPIRIDE and PILLs.
A large number of papers will feature during the the F³ Factory session including:
- Sigurd Buchholz and Tobias Grömping of Bayer Technology Services (project co-ordinators) will present an overview of the aims/objectives and early stage developments of the F³ Factory project;
- Consortium partners, Britest and Procter & Gamble, will present a joint paper on the 'Methodology required for F³ Factory process design in large scale continuous plants';
- AstraZeneca, Britest, Newcastle University and the Technical University Denmark will present a joint paper on 'F³ Factory process design for fine chemical and pharmaceutical transformations';
- TU Dortmund University and Arkema will present a joint paper on 'Process intensification of n-butyl acrylate synthesis using catalytic distillation - a theoretical study';
- Ruhr-University Bochum, University of Paderborn, TU Dortmund University and Bayer Technology Services will present a joint paper on 'Intensified absorption and distillation devices for modular chemical production processes'.
In addition several industrial and academic partners in the consortium will present posters on their activity in the F³ Factory project.
The CHISA Congress is a major biennial event for the European chemical and process engineering community which brings together leading academics and key industrialists involved in the academic interface. It is therefore an ideal platform to showcase the key European projects that seek to address major transformational challenges in this sector as well as to engage with potential stakeholders from the wider European community.
