A main challenge the process industry is facing today in introducing renewable raw material into their value chains, is the development of cost- and energy-efficient water removal and product-recovery techniques. In order to unlock the potential of the renewable-based product market for the European process industry, a re-thinking of downstream process development and the development of suitable methodologies for fast-track development of tailored downstream processes as well as the optimization of separation technologies are urgently needed.
OBJECTIVES OF PRODIAS
• PRODIAS perfectly addresses this challenge by developing and implementing:
1. a toolbox of highly innovative, cost-effective and “renewable-tailored”
separation technologies; single technologies and/or hybrid systems
2. novel, optimized apparatus and machinery to enable and host the developed
3. in combination with an integrated design approach for the fast-track selection of
