Industrial Process Scale-up

Book Description

This book will help industrial process innovators in research, development and commercial start-up to assess the risks of commercial-scale implementation and provide them with practical guidelines and methods to reduce the risks to acceptable levels. The book can also be used in co-operation with industrial R&D people and academic researchers to shape open innovation programs and in education as a reference book for process innovation courses.




    • Offers easily accessible, step-by-step, and concise guidelines for industrial process scale-up
    • Explains each stage of the innovation funnel: research, development, demonstration, commercial implementation for any process type and branch
    • Based on industrial experiences and practices, which reduces the risks of commercial scale implementation of new processes to acceptable levels and reduces cost and time of process innovation
    • Very clear, attractive layout, using text boxes that contain clarifying notes and additional information on specific topics, which makes it a quick reference of main subjects and additional information
