HYFO case ready to face next steps

  • 03/12/2020

EU-funded MACBETH project is ready to face the next step. Production & research are examining the use of the new & more sustainable membrane reactor for the hydroformylation process on a large scale for the first time. Currently, two continuous mini-plant of the highly efficient catalytic reactor are already running at the Evonik pilot plant in Marl. Close cooperation between research & production at a such early stage is essential to discuss e.g. how an integration could look alike or what might be the best timing for such a big step. In the upcoming months, the colleagues continue the intensive communication & will jointly plan in detail the possible location of the reactor.
