KETs Impact: The SusChem flagship for flexible, continuous chemical production

The recent SusChem White paper ‘Impact: Key Enabling Technologies (KETs) in Horizon Europe’ included a number of success stories highlighting publicly funded innovation involving KETs and the SusChem News blog is featuring a selection of these fruitful 'SusChem inspired' initiatives.


Sustainable chemistry is essential to the technological advance of KETs including advanced materials, advanced manufacturing technologies, industrial biotechnology, micro and nanoelectronics, nanotechnology and photonics. SusChem's key enabling technologies provide the critical building blocks for the solutions needed to achieve a sustainable low carbon circular economy. You can find out more here.

Our fifth success story features one of SusChem’s original Flagship projects from FP7 - the F3 Factory – and one of its seven case studies. F3 stood for fast, flexible, future factory. Launched in 2009, the €30 million EU-funded project was a major public-private sector initiative under FP7 that sought to define and demonstrate a new paradigm in modular sustainable chemical production technology. You can find more information on all seven F3 Factory case studies here.

Modularised solutions enabling solvent-free process
Improve the Competitiveness of the European Chemical Industry – F3 Factory

Public funding creates cross-sectorial collaboration, breakthrough technology advancement and fast-track-to-market of new products

BASF was part of the consortium behind the “F3 Factory” project. This consortium – consisting of 26 partners from academia and industry – aimed to develop an approach for radical modular process design. This concept enabled significant process intensification and at least 25% less energy consumption.

How was the breakthrough innovation achieved? 
The concept of modularised solutions was investigated for different industrial processes. Results from academia were transferred in business case studies and were demonstrated at commercial scale in an open access backbone plant for modular continuous production (INVITE Research Centre). BASF together with Bayer Technology Services have collaborated to demonstrate the concept of multi-product, small-to-medium scale production for high viscous polymers in a solvent-free manufacturing process. This collaboration was supported by Technical University Eindhoven and the University of Paderborn.


Impact

  • In addition to the technological advancement achieved in this project, the transfer from batch to continuous of a new solvent-free polymerisation process has demonstrated both cost (30% reduction of energy demand) and environmental (100% solvent reduction) impact for the production of highly viscous polymers.
  • The modularisation concept investigated in the demonstration plant furthermore allows a reduction of investment cost (up to 40%) compared to conventional processes and reduced time-to-market (up to 50%).

  1. ◾PROTOCOL SHIELDERS◾
    HELLO,

    I am COREY RODRIGUEZ by name,
    the only GENERAL CEO of protocol-cyber-shield-hackers.
    In this message, we will explain how you can almost avoid SCAMMERS and stay safe, plus how our organization works.

    Read it carefully!!
    Its reading will not take more than 10mins.

    We kindly URGE you to not respond without have read the entire text. Those who mail without have read everything, ask questions that are answered here!!

    ⚠️WARNING:

    MOST HACKERS YOU SEE HERE ARE FAKES
    AND SIMULTANEOUSLY INCONGRUOUS !!.
    It tears US up as we have received bitter emails of Jobs attempts proposals from most clients with hacking issues but never got it done and lost a lot in the process,
    EXAMPLES OF LOSSES ARE:
    ➡️BINARY FUNDS,
    ➡️INVESTMENTS,
    ➡️LARGE SCALE FUNDS,
    ➡️PROPERTIES,
    ➡️STONES(JEWELRIES) etc....

    all scammed by uncertified and fake hackers SIMPLY TERMED as "IMPERSONATION" like most you see here,
    which is disappointingly inadequate,
    leaving their mess for us to deal with eventually (WE DON'T MEAN TO BRAG ABOUT THAT).

    SCAMMERS DON'T SHOW MERCY ON THEIR VICTIMS!
    BY THE TIME YOU KNOW IT,YOU'VE GONE TOO DEEP BEING RIPPED OFF THROUGH DIVERSE TRICKY MEANS,PLEASE BE WISE ENOUGH TO PAY ATTENTION TO THIS ARTICLE AS YOU READ THROUGH IT.
    HOW CAN YOU BE CAREFUL??

    You won't know until you fall Victim ,but can be attentive to potential danger, error or harm if you take note of these:

    1, you see uncertified email accounts carrying numberings like
    "iamhacklord1232@(gmail,yahoo or hotmailDOTcom"
    pls flee from them, BIG SCAMMERS.
    They take your money and never do your job!!

    2, you see posts like "do you need to spy on spouse?"
    All fake!
    just a way to lure you toward getting ripped OFF!.

    3, posting fake testimonies and comments to trick you into feeling save and secured.
    Pls endeavour to ignore!!

    πŸ›‘NOTE: beware as we urge you not to make respond to any "IVAN HONG,PETER SANTOS,MONICA HART...(impersonating with our post pretending to work for us)
    WE ONLY HAVE 2 EMAILS WHICH ARE LISTED BELOW THIS ARTICLE TO ATTEND TO YOU VARIOUS MANNER OF CYBER MISHAPS.

    ◾VERY IMPORTANT ◾

    For years now, We've helped organizations secure data base, so many sites USES US AS SECURITY BACK UP TEAM BECAUSE OF OUR METHODS OF HANDLING CYBER MISHAPS.
    πŸ†—"CLEAR CRIMINAL RECORDS" 99%
    πŸ†—"iPHONE HACK" 99%
    πŸ†—"BINARY RETRIEVAL" 99% AND LOT MORE BEEN DONE IN SHORT TIMING!

    these are significant EXPERIENCES & RECORDS a good and effectively fully recognized organization must firmly ascertain.

    ◾OUR "AIMS" HERE ◾
    Are:
    1◾to assign a qualified agent of specific rank to particularly any sort of cyber issues you intend dealing with in short and accurate timing.

    2◾ to screen in real hackers (gurus only) in need of job with or without a degree, to speed up the availability of time given for Job contracts given to us.!!

    Thus an online binary decoding exam will be set for those who seeks employment under the teams Establishment.

    COREY ROD,
    SIGNED...!
    Thank you!!!
