Abstract

The chapter presents modern techniques for increasing the eco-efficiency of the chemical equipment with the benefit of lower capital costs, substantial energy saving, reduced footprint and safety-by-design. Central topics are static mixers, compact heat exchangers, high-gravity technology, reactive separations devices (e.g. reactive distillation, reactive absorption), and more advanced distillation technologies such as dividing-wall column.
