LGC’s aims

Develop new knowledge, invent breakthrough technologies

- Research conducted at the LGC aims at designing, operating, optimising and scaling-up innovative processes for the process industries.

- The scientific approach integrates and associates aspects related to equipment technology, the final product, as well as the global process. Current and future industrial demands for complex multi-phase multi-component products, tight product specifications and sustainable conditions require the development of diverse and innovative processes. At the LGC, new approaches are explored to better integrate specific operations at multiple scales, ranging from the molecular or particulate scale to the scale of the entire global process.

- Research based on thermodynamics, as well as physical, chemical, electrochemical and biochemical kinetics enrich recent advances in phenomenological modelling, computational fluid dynamics, process simulation and instrumentation.
