PROCESS INTENSIFICATION FEATURE SESSION - Hosted by PIN & PI Group at Newcastle University
Time & Location
Thursday: 12.30 to 13.0, Stage 3
Prof. Adam HarveyProfessor of Process Intensification - Newcastle University
Part 1: Introduction to Process Intensification
Prof Harvey will describe what “process intensification” is, and give an overview of the diverse range of “intensified” process technologies available in the Process Intensification Group (PIG) at Newcastle. This will illustrate how “PI” can transform many chemical processes, by reducing the size, cost and environmental impact of many technologies/processes.
Professor Adam Harvey is the Professor of Process Intensification at Newcastle University, School of Engineering and Head of the Process Intensification Group (PIG). The group is World-leading, and the largest PI research group in the World, comprising over 70 researchers: 15 academic staff, 10 research associates/visitors and over 45 PhD students.
Prof Harvey also manages the international network, PIN (Process Intensification Network), which recently held its 27th meeting (in Newcastle, June 2019), and is one of the authors of the main textbook on the subject (Reay, Ramshaw and Harvey).
His research spans a diverse range of research areas including: process intensification, biofuels, CO2 chemistry, biomass processing, bioreactors, plasma processing and flow chemistry. In these areas, he has over 140 publications:
