Manufacturing efficiency by modular multipurpose plants
Combining batch flexibility with continuous flow chemistry performance
This work presents a new innovative concept, how basic manufacturing needs of small and medium scalemanufacturing tasks can be moved to a higher level of efficiency. The basic idea of the concept is to combine the long timeknown performance of continuous processing with the flexibility of today’s common batch synthesis. The concept uses amodularized continuous plant concept, where the needed flexibility is provided by first rearrangement of the processingmodules and second modularity within each module to adjust it according to the needs of each chemical reaction. Thisgives the possibility to reach a continuous processing performance by means of a flexible multi purpose plant.
