 Project objective

Improvements in both the economic effectiveness and environmental impacts to the fine chemical industry are necessary to maintain European competitiveness and reduce the global environmental cost of these products. Both of these goals can be accomplished by making existing processes more efficient. Catalysts facilitate the development of efficient chemical processes and are required for the sophisticated transformations used to produce high valued pharmaceutical and fragrance products. A process using catalysis requires significantly less energy, reactor volume, input feedstock and solvents in order to produce a desired material. However, the application of homogeneous catalysts for sophisticated transformations requires separating the product from the catalyst. Many separation processes are destructive to the catalytic material leading to limited use, driving the cost of the catalyst and the subsequent fine chemical processes. This separation limits reactor design to batch reactors, which are less efficient in terms of energy and solvents than flow type reactors. The EnCatFlow project will utilize encapsulated catalysts in a flow membrane reactor. This would uniquely offer both catalyst protection and recyclability in a flow reactor format unlike any currently developing technologies, allowing the development of novel commercially competing processes. Our team includes two industrial partners that have expertise in flow chemistry, catalyst development, and an expert from the Energy Research Centre of the Netherlands, next to the PI and the technical researcher. A envisioned process is discussed with PWF as the end-user. The final goal is to develop commercially competing processes and to start a spin off company to commercialise the technology.

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "ENCATFLOW" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
