Open-cell solid foams as catalyst carrier for structured reactors
In the course of the Helmholtz Energy Alliance ‘Energy Efficient Chemical Multiphase Processes’, different approaches with the application of open-cell solid foams as catalyst carrier were adopted for the optimization of the example process of the hydrogenation of nitrobenzene to aniline.
Two-phase flow in static mixers
Static mixers are an attractive contactor alternative to the bubble column and mechanically stirred vessels in chemical industries. Small space requirement, low equipment and maintenance costs, sharp residence time distributions and high interfacial area production are the main features of static mixers.
