Continuous processing

Evonik seeks to apply continuous processing technologies for each step within the manufacturing process where additional value can be generated.

  • From process development to customized production, separation and work-up
  • Established processes with a broad variety of reactor technologies including micro reactors, tube reactors, loop reactors, trickle-bed reactors plus CSTR and SMB
  • Continuous separation and work-up technologies including distillation, extraction, crystallization and membranes
  • New modular, continuous processing cGMP pilot plant (OEB 3) in Germany


The use of continuous processes for complex or multi-stage API syntheses can generate significant safety, quality, yield and financial benefits over batch processing.
