Pilot plant in a container

ID: F1512-04

In view of new rising areas and production abilities in Asia, the chemical market is currently under considerable expense and ecological force. Improving conventional production procedures is maybe not sufficient anymore. Rather, process intensification is a paradigm change to boost competition and sustainability of chemical processes. A new task worked on developing new technologies, procedures and manufacturing concepts for the 'plant of the future' for the chemical industry. New modular miniaturised reactors – microreactors – have actually been developed designed for these garage-sized plants to enable process intensification. The unique function of the next-generation container is its ability to be utilized anywhere. Measuring only 3x12 m, the container holds everything required for manufacturing reactors, procedure control technology, information technology modules, and storage area for feedstocks. In addition, it has elements for fire security, escape doorways and catch basins. The supply system for water, process gases, electricity, temperature and information lines is designed in such a means that it can theoretically host any chemical reactions. A pilot plant was set up to enable researchers to explore the feasibility of producing biodiesel from waste essential oils in supercritical conditions. The gasification of biomass to create chemicals and ammonia was additionally trialled. In addition, the task team desired to enhance processing approaches. They introduced a newly developed concept – unique process windows – to speed up reactions through an extremely intensified approach. This technology should allow the chemical industry to produce items faster, more flexibly and more sustainably. The brand new plant ideas should contribute to the move towards adaptive manufacturing.
