A holistic platform for facilitating Process Intensification design and optimization in solid processes: Cement, ceramics, chemicals, engineering, minerals and ores, non-ferrous metals, steel and water represent the 20% of the total European manufacturing industry with over 450,000 enterprises. There is a clear and urgent interest in improved resource efficiency due to the high dependence in production on energy, utilities and raw materials. And as the existing production processes have been operated for decades the Process Intensification can contribute significantly in making industrial processes faster, more efficient and better for the environment. In this context IRIS is developing the IbD platform, being a comprehensive devices-and-processes design-platform for the industrial realisation of Process Intensification involving solids handling – either from scratch or by transforming existing processes into intensified ones.
