The chapter presents process intensification technologies used in industrial applications, for increasing the eco-efficiency of the chemical equipment with the benefit of lower capital costs, substantial energy saving, reduced footprint, and safety by design. The key topics cover compact heat exchangers, static mixers, green chemical reactors (e.g., microreactors), high-gravity (HiGee) technology, cyclic distillation, dividing-wall column, and reactive distillation.
