Development of Fine Chemical?s advanced processes. (Desarrollo de procesos avanzados de Qu?mica Fina) (DPAQ)? Doctoral Thesis
The objective of the present project is to solve the safety problems existing in the main fine chemicals discontinuous processes. In the approved projects PB98-0410 and PPQ2002-01806, the main target of the work was to obtain macrocyclic lactones as
The project aim to improve the understanding of the processes that occur in accidental flashing releases of liquids at high pressure, and to enhance the predictive capabilities of engineering tools used in hazard assessment. Flammable atmospheres con
Generalized criteria for assessing thermal stability of discontinuous reactors? Doctoral Thesis
The thesis has been undertaken with the main purpose of developing intrinsic criterion that would allow the prevention of thermal runaway for any process carried out in discontinuous reactors (batch and semi-batch processes).
Intrinsic criteria, b
Methodologies for thermal risk analysis of discontinuous chemical processes (Metodologies per l?an?lisi del risc t?rmic de processos qu?mic discontinues) ? Doctoral Thesis
The project presents a comparative analysis of methodologies to realise studies on thermal security of chemical reactions, in discontinuous mode, currently used in several research centres. Furthermore, the project presents an analysis of its use bas
