Local and Global intensification of processes

Time2013.10.24 (Thursday) 9:15pm 

LocationBuilding Energy Building 2#, 8th Floor Conference Room 801 (in DNL12 ) 

LecturerProfessorLaurent FALK 

Research Director at the National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), Director of the Laboratory of Reactions and Chemical Engineering (Nancy, FRANCE) 


Intensification, micromixing and reactive flow in chemical reactors.

Design and study of micro-processes, micro-structured reactors and heat and mass transfer in intensified equipments (contactors, heat exchangers, reactors and mixers) for applications in fine chemistry, product engineering, energy and safe and clean processes.  

Study of coupled phenomena in chemical reactors (hydrodynamics, mixing, physico-chemistry, reactions and heat transfer).  

The objectives, besides a better understanding of these coupled phenomena, are the design improvement, the conception and the settling of industrial reactors for the yield and selectivity control by models, simulation and by fine experiments. 

Application domains: processes of elaboration of products and materials with specific end use properties (polymerization, crystallization and precipitation), reactors dealing with fast and multiple reactions (polycondensation, organic syntheses), catalytic microstructured reactors.
