Flow Chemistry: Challenges and opportunities of Micro Reaction Technologies
Monday, 11 June 2018, 15:00 – 17:30 h
CongressCenter Messe Frankfurt (CMF), Room Conclusio 1
Flow chemistry or micro-reaction technology (MRT) – both terms describe a technology with enormous advantages for many process engineering applications. MRT replaces discontinuous batch processes with a continuous method in which reactions take place in extremely miniaturized structures. The notion of transforming process engineering production from the batch principle to continuous flow processes based on micro- and milli-reactors may not always be so easy for production staff to accept – even though in many cases it would offer great advantages. Adopted by the pharmaceutical industry in recent years, the technology platform offers potential in many respects, but although the technology as such is not at issue it experiences acceptance problems. Following the session on the emerging topic of modern flow chemistry and its important connection to sustainable chemistry, an expert panel of researchers and industry specialists will discuss challenges and opportunities of continuous processing in chemical and pharmaceutical manufacturing and evaluate the efficiency of flow technologies and their impact on the overall efficiency and sustainability of a chemical process.
