Even if process unit operations appear to be fully developed, new products and product groups, new type of raw materials and synthesis routes or integration of biochemical processes continue to present demanding challenges for chemical engineers. Modern process engineering is simply inconceivable without mixing technology. Modern mixing technology can be used to optimize production and to improve ressource efficiency and economic viability.


Modern fermentation processes are used to obtain substances such as enzymes, active pharmaceutical ingredients (API), amino acids and vitamins as meta
