Certech invests in process intensification and continuous flow chemistry in order to develop and promote more efficient, agile, safe and sustainable solutions for the chemical industry.
The use of microfluidic reactors enables :
- Significant operational gains (energy efficiency, waste reduction, optimised reaction time, simplified maintenance, etc.)
- Substantial acceleration of chemical reactions as well as a better control of selectivity and repeatability due to efficient mass and heat transfers and precise control of reaction conditions
- Improved safety thanks to low volume of chemicals involved at a given time as well as excellent temperature control
- Seamless scale up using scaling-up or numbering-up strategies
Different applications are covered including organic and inorganic chemistry, biocatalysis and heterogeneous catalysis.
