Successful Scale-up of Catalytic Processes

9 November 2017 10:00-16:00, Stockton-on-Tees, United Kingdom

RSC Applied Catalysis Group
One-day symposium

Successful Scale-up of Catalytic Processes

Thursday 9th November 2017
10 am – 4 pm
JM Technology Centre, Stockton-on-Tees

The aim of this symposium is to examine the issues that need to be considered when scaling-up catalytic processes from the discovery phase, through piloting, up to commercial scale implementation.  It will seek to cover heterogeneous, homogeneous and biocatalysis, whilst considering a variety of aspects such as kinetics, reactor choice and design, catalyst and process feasibility, supply issues, SHE factors, and economics.
