Cyclic operation of Trickle Bed Reactors (CYCLOP) / Funded by European Commission, G1RD-CT-2000-00225

The project aimed at the development of new technology, involving controlled cyclic operation of (two-phase flow) trickle bed reactors, whereby an input process parameter (feed flow rate or reactant concentration) is periodically varied in order to achieve a more efficient, safer, and thus environmentally attractive operation. Through lab and pilot scale experimentation as well as advanced modelling, process simulation tools were developed.
