Process Intensification in Crystallization: Submicron Particle Generation using Alternative Energy Forms

Research output: ThesisDoctoral Thesis

Abstract

Crystallization is one of the oldest separation and product formation techniques that continues to be in use today. Despite its long history, it only started to develop significantly in the past few decades. In this thesis, the application of Process Intensification in crystallization is investigated. Process Intensification is a set of often radically innovative principles in process and equipment design, which can bring significant benefits in terms of process and chain efficiency, capital and operating expenses, quality, wastes, process safety, etc. Alternative energy forms as basic elements of Process Intensification are investigated by applying electric fields and plasma technology in crystallization processes.
