Course Topic

Chemical Kinetics and Reactors

play a crucial role in industrial-scale, raw material conversion into products. Numerous factors must be considered when selecting an appropriate and efficient chemical reactor, in particular when complex heterogeneous reactions occur. Kinetic modelling is an essential tool for the design and optimization of chemical products and processes.

Kinetic Modelling

Kinetic modelling includes fundamental aspects such as stoichiometry, kinetics and thermodynamics in the analysis of chemical reactor behaviour. Microkinetic models help to consolidate the fundamental information about a catalytic reaction.

Interactive Tutorials

During this course with a focus of chemical reaction and reactor engineering, ex-cathedra sessions are alternated with interactive tutorials during which user-friendly software tools are used, e.g., KASTER and Athena Visual Studio.

Gather.Town is a web-conferencing software with the added component of seeing the virtual "room" you and others are occupying, and with the ability to move around and interact with other participants based on your locations in the room, just like real life.)

The course is intended for (junior) engineers and scientists from industry as well as academia with a background in chemistry or chemical engineering. The total number of participants is limited to 20 to maximise the benefit of the participants.

The course fee amounts to EUR 350 (excl. VAT) for students, EUR 450 (excl. VAT) for academia and EUR 600 (excl. VAT) for industrial participants and includes the course, course material, and the social e-activity
