Adventures in Industrial Reactor Engineering - Energy and Fuels

Speaker: David Dankworth, ExxonMobil Research and Engineering Co.
Series: CBE Departmental Seminars
Location: Elgin Room (E-Quad A224)
Date/Time: Wednesday, March 5, 2014, 4:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Ever increasing world demand for energy, coupled with rapid changes in raw materials availability and shifting product demands provides a strong driver for new or improved process technology, and extreme challenges for Reactor Engineers.   This seminar will discuss the key aspects and trends currently active in the fuels and petrochemicals industry, with focus on the engineering challenges that these trends pose.   Examples where modern Reactor Engineering tools and concepts have been applied successfully will also be discussed, including case studies in large scale multiphase reactor design and scale up.
