For the former, the main challenges are the effective coupling to heat and mass transfer, the extension to three-phase flow modeling and the multi-scale features of systems showing large particle/bubble/droplet heterogeneities.
For the latter, we invite (and plan to invite more) research engineers and decision makers from major companies to identify the most urgent needs of the chemical and/or process industry and to define ways to intensify academia/industry collaborations.
The workshop plans to address some crucial issues of the 21st century energy transition. It has a major relevance for industrial players as much as for the people in North America and all around the world. If we hope to keep our modern life style in a sustainable way, accelerated technological development and intensification of existing processes are the key components of the new energy mix that will make this hope possible.
