Collaborative Research Center/ Transregio 63 (CRR/TR 63) "Integrated Chemical Processes in Liquid Multiphase Systems" (InPROMPT)

About us:

The CRR/TR 63 is engaged in the systematic development of efficient production processes based on chemical reactions in liquid multiphase systems. Due to the growing shortage of fossil oil and gas, the chemical industry faces the enormous challenge to extend the base of resources used in the production of platform chemicals. This includes the integration of renewable raw materials as feedstocks. Ideally, these resources should substitute organic chemicals in a way that the existing, highly complex networks for the production of chemical substances remain unchanged. A promising group of materials that are currently under investigation in our Collaborative Research Center are long-chain olefins and oleo compounds. For the use of these materials in chemical production processes, fundamentals and technical utilization of multi-component solvent systems with tunable properties are investigated. The CRR/TR 63, supported by the German Research Foundation (DFG), is divided into three project areas that develop and apply experimental and theoretical methods from the disciplines chemical engineering, thermodynamic, process and system engineering. More than 60 scientists from different universities and institutions such as Technische Universität Berlin, Technische Universität Dortmund, Otto-von-Guericke-Universität Magdeburg, Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems Magdeburg and Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft Berlin are involved.

InPROMPT 2016 - "Tunable Solvents For Green Processing"

Goals and Topics:

The international symposium InPROMPT 2016 is the second event of a series of symposia organized by our Collaborative Research Center. It provides a platform for presentations and discussions of the current state of research related to the topic "Tunable Solvents For Green Processing". Tunable solvents are a developing research field of interest and not only attractive tools for process design and optimization, but also a key element on the way to green processing. Invited international scientist as well as members of the CRR/TR 63 will present their current research projects covering the following aspects:

  • - tunable solvent systems (e.g. ionic liquids, gas expanded liquids)

  • - solvent effects on reaction kinetics and thermodynamic phase behavior

  • - catalyst design

  • - momentum and mass transfer processes

  • - reactor optimization

  • - process intensification

  • - process design and optimization (methodological approaches)
