|Fischer-Tropsch synthesis and methanation based on microstructured reactors||
IMVT cooperates since 2016 on exclusive basis with its spin-off company INERATEC GmbH on the commercialization of the microreactor technologies for Fischer-Tropsch synthesis and CO/CO2 methanation which have been developed at the Institute.
|Use of microstructure devices in chemical process engineering||
IMVT cooperates since 2005 with the company BASF SE in the field of micro process engineering in the frame of a licensing agreement. The goal is an evaluation of various microstructured devices developed by the Institute unter industrial conditions. In the focus are both applications in process development and in the production of chemicals.
|Industrial production of fine chemicals using microstructured reactors||
IMVT works together since 2004 with the company ESIM Fine Chemicals, Linz, Austria (before DSM Fine Chemicals GmbH) in the frame of a licensing agreement on the industrial application of compact microstructured reactors for the highly exothermic synthesis of diaceton acrylamide.
|Development of a technical H2 membrane reactor||
KIT, Linde AG and Plansee SE worked together from 2009 to 2013 on the development of novel porous metal supported composite palladium membranes for use in an integrated palladium membrane reformer for small-capacity hydrogen production by steam reforming of natural gas.
Results from this cooperation are reported, for example, in the doctoral thesis of Benjamin Dittmar entitled "Entwicklung eines technischen H2-Membranreaktors" (KIT, 2013, in German) and in a scientific publication (Dittmar et al., Int. J. Hydr. Energy 38, 2013, 8759-8771, doi:10.1016/j.ijhydene.2013.05.030).
