EPSRC grant success for Chemical Engineering Professor Asterios Gavriilidis and Dr. Simon Kuhn
26 April 2013
Congratulations to Professor Asterios Gavriilidis (PI)
and Dr. Simon Kuhn, who have won a collaborative consortium £991k grant,
resulting from an EPSRC Sandpit, titled “Sustainable Manufacturing in
Multiphase Continuous Reactors: Aerobic Oxidations”.
The project, which is a joint collaboration with Huddersfield, Leeds, Imperial and Cardiff, aims to develop new catalytic materials and new catalytic reactor technology to address organic transformations of relevance to high value chemicals manufacturing which so far have been avoided due to scalability issues. The resolution of this problem will generate new IP-protectable knowledge and business opportunities.
Specifically, it will enable:
a) New, cleaner more efficient processing to existing products and facilitation of new product streams (e.g. oxidation of renewable feedstocks for new products).
b) New reactor platforms & catalysts to provide global manufacturing services, retaining IP & economic value in the UK.
c) Opportunities for UK-based high value toll manufacturing opportunities based around oxidation.
The project involves a multidisciplinary team of chemists and chemical engineers with expertise in catalyst design, catalyst evaluation, and reactor technology who will work synergistically to develop scalable, catalytic, continuous flow reactors.
