Aims & Objectives

The F³ Factory project has two key aims:

  • to deliver radically new ‘plug and play’ modular chemical production technology, capable of widespread implementation throughout the chemical industry
  • to deliver holistic process design methodology applying process intensification concepts and innovative decision tools

Specific objectives of the project are to:

  • design and develop a modular continuous plant (the F³ Factory ‘backbone’ plant in Leverkusen)
  • standardise processes and their interfaces by developing methodologies for whole process design focused on modular plant
  • demonstrate the capabilities of the F³ Factory with existing products via seven case studies with the key industrial partners
