Next Gen Chemical Batch Reactors

FREE | March 20, 2024

REGISTER

Unlike most progressive industries, the chemical industry has relied on simple batch reactors and as such has not developed anything resembling lean production processes or competitive advantage. The technology currently being used to determine the primary production scale and output for most synthesis chemistry is still that of the mid-20th century. This lack of technological innovation ultimately determines throughput, quality and energy consumption, regardless of geographic manufacturing region.

Over the last 25+ years there has been significant time and energy expended on evaluating a more radical flow chemistry which promises much but comes with as many difficulties as it solves. These include inflexibility, new plant requirements, alternative process procedures and massive investments, to name a few.

There is, however, a more rational approach used by nearly every other manufacturing segment and that is to make the existing production process more productive, while retaining the basic infrastructure and process flow.

This webinar aims to show how changes in reactor system technology for current plant designs not only provides huge beneficial effects in overall chemistry batch production and quality but enables further down-stream beneficial thinking.

Leveraging Digital Process Twins for Efficient and Flexible Hydrogen Production: From Design to Operation

FREE | January 31, 2024

REGISTER

Hydrogen has become a vital clean energy source amid global efforts to decarbonize industries and enhance energy security. However, the dynamic nature of renewable energy sources like solar and wind, often used in hydrogen production, presents significant challenges. To address these challenges, it is imperative to design hydrogen production facilities for flexibility rather than around a single operating point. Additionally, once operational, maximizing cost-efficiency hinges on factors such as renewable energy availability, grid pricing, and hydrogen demands.

Digital process twins, driven by high-fidelity process models, prove indispensable throughout this journey. During the design phase, these digital twins empower engineers to explore the design space, assess risks, and make informed decisions. In the operational phase, they serve as the foundation for a hydrogen energy management system. This system empowers operators to monitor the state of their hydrogen production assets, accurately model production efficiency, and leverage forecasts for renewable energy availability, grid pricing, and hydrogen demands to determine the optimal production schedule.

In this webinar, we will highlight the significant benefits of adopting a consistent modeling approach throughout all project phases. This approach facilitates seamless knowledge transfer among project teams and ensures that deep process understanding gained during design can be seamlessly deployed to operations for real-time monitoring and optimization. By doing so, it not only streamlines project development but also contributes to the industry’s pursuit of efficient, flexible, and sustainable hydrogen production.
