Modular Production – a paradigm shift for the process industry

Innovation and digitalization are speeding up steadily, and product life cycles get shorter and shorter with increasing product diversity. These trends clearly reduce the life cycle span of processes in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry. Novel plant concepts are needed for rapid and intelligent adaption to new conditions, like changed production volumes, variable feedstocks or flexible product adaptation.
