MOBOCON - Release of the video documentary

The ERC Advanced Investigator Grant project MOBOCON will be finished in November successfully. To record the outcomes that were achieved in the laboratory and to motivate similar realizations for industrial processes, we have decided to release a short video-documentary.

Since the launch of the MOBOCON project which dates back to June 2012, numerous investigations were conducted enabling to realize model-based optimizing control for a chemical process in pilot-plant scale. Thanks to the intensive collaborations with Prof. Górak (FVT, TU Dortmund) and Prof. Bock (IWR, Heidelberg) and their scientific staff, excellent results could be obtained by the operation of an intensified chemical process. The considered process is a reactive distillation process hosting a homogeneously-catalyzed two-step transesterification reaction. To record the outcomes that were achieved in the laboratory and to motivate similar realizations for industrial processes, we have decided to release a short video-documentary. The video, which can be found here (see the video on this page), presents all approaches that were used in research area 5 “Full-scale validation and demonstration at the pilot plant” of the project MOBOCON as well as the insights into the realization and important results.
