When: 5 November 2020
A virtual meeting on reactor engineering. Catalytic reactors are key in many chemical manufacturing processes. As digitisation becomes pervasive in every aspect of technology, and increasingly in manufacturing, changes in the way we are developing catalysts and designing and operating catalytic reactors are on the horizon. In this one-day symposium, organised by the UK Catalysis Hub, six speakers from industry and academia will share exciting developments, tools and methodologies on catalytic reaction and reactor engineering in the digitisation era. The meeting will be of interest to researchers, academics and industrialists alike with an interest in catalyst and catalytic reactor development.
