Displaying items by tag: ProcessNumberland engineering consultancy for new processes, new materials. New processes: We analyse, optimize and document processes often not covered by quality management handbooks and teach them to run. We translate technical demands into physical effects or properties and then find the suitable material.http://tech-no-log-ic.de/index.php/get-in-contact/itemlist/tag/Process2016-05-28T11:36:17+02:00Joomla! - Open Source Content ManagementExecute chemical processes more eco-friendly2015-10-27T22:11:51+01:002015-10-27T22:11:51+01:00http://tech-no-log-ic.de/index.php/get-in-contact/item/1513-execute-chemical-processes-more-eco-friendlyAdministratorgrond@numberland.de<div class="K2FeedImage"><img src="http://tech-no-log-ic.de/media/k2/items/cache/9d420ea9134f51f1b7d6e409defa19a0_S.jpg" alt="Execute chemical processes more eco-friendly" /></div><div class="K2FeedIntroText"><h1><span style="display: inline; float: none; position: static; font-size: 14px; font-weight: bold; font-family: Tahoma,Arial,sans-serif; font-size-adjust: none; font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; line-height: 14.3px; text-align: left; text-decoration: none; text-indent: 0px; text-shadow: none; text-transform: none; word-spacing: normal;">Execute chemical processes more eco-friendly</span></h1> </div><div class="K2FeedFullText"> <p>ID: F1510-09</p> <p>Experts have developed unique nano-structured catalysts and selective membrane materials for catalytic membrane reactors (CMRs) of great importance to the power sector. They promise enhanced overall performance and sustainability at a lower price. CMRs combine membrane-based separation and a catalytic chemical reaction in one single device. More than 80 % of reactions in the chemical industry exploit catalysts to boost production price and yield. Process intensification allowing significantly less power usage and waste for more cost-effective and sustainable technologies could have tremendous impact on industry. A new project features selected four chemical processes particularly important in the power sector related to the production of pure hydrogen, liquid hydrocarbons and ethylene. The procedures are autothermal reforming (ATR), Fischer-Tropsch synthesis (FTS), the water-gas shift (WGS) reaction and oxidative coupling of methane (OCM). In the at the same time the team features in its hands enhanced and more cost-effective catalysts and membranes for all four procedures. Those for the lab-scale studies have been delivered to lovers currently and the materials for the pilot-scale reactors have been selected. The final catalysts for each of the pilot-scale CMRs all demonstrate superior task, selectivity and stability compared to the current state of the art. Lab-scale CMRs for all four processes have been constructed and are in different phases of screening and demonstration. In specific, the FTS and WGS reactors have actually been shown and the oxygen membranes of the ATR and OCM reactors are currently being optimised. Pilot prototypes have been designed for all but the FTS CMR (see figure on module of WGS pilot). Design of the membranes, catalysts and CMRs was supported throughout the development process by modelling and simulation. Completion of the task will be accompanied by life-cycle and environmental analyses, the initial results of which have actually currently been obtained.
