    The goal.Introducing the concept of process intensification, as an alternative to classical principles of chemical engineering. ; 2. Learning about different chemical engineering principles which can be used for intensification of chemical processes. ; 3 Learning about specific processes based on process intensification. ; 4. Perception of the current state of process intensification (processes on the research, development and industrial application stages). ;
    The outcomeThe students are qualified for: ; 1. A new approach to the development and design of chemical processes, based on process intensification ; 2. Applying the principles of process intensification in research ; 3. Applying the principles of process intensification in development of new technologies ;
    Contents of lecturesIntroduction to process intensification: basic principles and a new paradigm. ; 2 Space, energy, synergy and time domains of process intensification. ; 3. Functional integration of equipment. ; 4. Energy integration. ; 5. Structural integration (hybrid and multifunctional equipment) ; 6. Equipment miniaturization: micro-reactors, micro-separators, etc. ; 7. Deliberate unsteady-state processes. ; 8. Overview of the current state of process intensification: processes on the research, development and industrial application stages ;
