Continuous Manufacturing of Formulations in Minutes instead of Hours

PDF 6.6 MB

Microinnova Engineering GmbH has successfully commissioned two continuous formulation production plants to a European client. The design of the fully automated plant is very compact, which makes it possible to easily transport & install it at a different manufacturing site on the other side of the world.  It possesses an integrated Plug & Play concept, which means that 14 tons per day can be produced. All streams are controlled with precise mass flow meters so no labor intensive pre-weight of substances is needed and instant change of recipe is possible. This provides an easy capacity increase for the client and enables the production of new products.“

  • Sponsored Content Capacity Boost by Batch-to-Conti Debottlenecking

    Space economy is a typical issue for debottlenecking projects. Since a continuous approach reduces mass and heat transfer distances up to a factor of 100, these solutions can easily be integrated into an existing batch environment.

    Development of efficient synthesis routes using the advantages of continuous processing. 


    Decades of experience in process intensification, flow chemistry and continuous processing gives us the ability to investigate the best approach and strategy to put your process into an efficient system.


    Inside our flow lab scale plants we have multiple technologies available to develop continuous experimental procedures with the principal objective of showing a reliable mode of operation.


    Depending on the inherent characteristics each verified continuous process is optimized. The optimal processing window is determined on scalable equipment to finally deliver a robust continuous system.

  • Video Modular Plants for Smart Manufacturing

    My name is Katharina and I will show you how continuous modular plants will change chemical processing for a more sustainable future, using modular plug & play plants. We see some issues with batch processing. Sometimes there are concentration spots, the walls are too hot for the molecules. Our philosophy is that all molecules should have the same processing conditions. This we realize by looking at the critical parameters of the chemistry and selecting the right process intensification technology. Furthermore, the space-time-yield can be maximized by a magnitude or more by reducing mass and heat transfer distances, leading to much shorter residence times and compact designs. Since we already have a continuous operating plant in the lab, scale-up becomes much easier. Continuous manufacturing allows for superior quality control due to advanced PAT. Standardized modules enable a quick realization of reduced time to produce and time-to-market. More infos below video!
  • Video 8 Differentiators that make Microinnova Unique

    Microinnova serves its customers as a one-stop-shop from development to manufacturing plants. The following eight differentiators make Microinnova unique. 1. Microinnova focuses on end-to-end continuous manufacturing, dealing with processes in the area of synthesis, work-up and formulation. 
    2. We work with a wide range of different process intensification technologies. We select the best technology for each process. We want to enable uniform process conditions for each molecule. 
    3. We are used to working in regulated environments. We are DIN EN ISO 9001 certified. We can build plants that fulfill typical standards for regulated environments like GMP and ATEX. 
    4. We can handle various conditions. We can process highly viscous materials like melts, suspensions, precipitates and solids in packed or trickle beds.
