Towards Small-Scale Continuous Chemical Production: Technology Gaps and Challenges

A. Pashkova, L. Greiner

Chemie Ingenieur Technik, 83 (2011), 1337-1342, doi: 10.1002/cite.201100037


Continuous processes are highly attractive and their advantages are textbook knowledge. However, for small-scale chemical production (typically up to 100 t per year) batch processes are the predominant application. Why this is the case and what factors dominate the decision is analyzed. Apart from technological reasons, socioeconomic, as well as human factors have to be accounted for.
