巴斯夫荣获IChemE2007年度大奖
  2007-11-05  中国化工信息网
   近日,巴斯夫公司对外宣布,巴斯夫荣获2007年度“AstraZeneca”大奖。该奖主要颁发给在绿色化工和工程领域有杰出贡献的企业。今年一共有八家企业获此殊荣。
   巴斯夫的获奖原因是其CDon生产工艺的成功开发。这一新的生产工艺经过三个生产步骤和一次性催化程序。然而,传统的生产流程要经过五道生产步骤和三次催 化剂的使用。因而,新工艺大大提高了生产效率,并减少了废物和废水的排放。同时,该生产流程首次将生产废气一氧化二氮作为生产的氧化剂。巴斯夫已经在 2004年秋对这一生产工艺申请了专利权。
    IchemE颁奖委员会在颁奖辞中表示:一氧化二氮的“变废为宝”,是工业氧化流程的一项重大突破。这一创新不仅大大缩短了聚酰胺12的生产路线,提高生 产率,也将作为温室气体的生产副产品成功加以转化使用。这一技术成功实现了企业经济效益和生产可持续发展双项目标。

BASF wins IChemE Award 2007 Prize for cyclododecanone production process

30 Oct 2007 - BASF received the ""AstraZeneca Award for Excellence in Green Chemistry and Engineering", one of eight "IChemE Awards 2007", for its novel process for producing cyclododecanone (CDon).
 
This new process developed by BASF researchers consists of three steps and requires just one catalyst, while conventional production processes have five steps and use three catalysts. It also stands out for yielding more final product while it produces clearly less waste and practically no waste water at all. Moreover, the new BASF process employs laughing gas (nitrous oxide), a waste product from the company's Verbund, as an oxidizing agent for the first time. BASF filed a patent application for its proprietary process in the fall of 2004.
 
The reasons the IChemE jury gives for the award state: "The new process for the synthesis of cyclododecanone using nitrous oxide is a major breakthrough in industrial oxidation processes. This new process not only allows a much shorter and more efficient route for the production of polyamide 12, but also uses a byproduct and green-house gas as a valuable reagent. It clearly shows that sustainable chemistry and economic value can indeed go hand-in-hand."
 
CDon is the key raw material for making laurolactam, an intermediate used to produce the high-performance plastic polyamide 12 (PA 12) as well as special valuable fragrances. BASF is building a production plant for CDon at its Verbund site in Ludwigshafen, Germany, which is due to come on stream in 2009. To man the plant, BASF will create some 40 new jobs. BASF has signed a long-term supply contract for most of the output of the new facility with EMS-CHEMIE, a company of Domat-Ems in Switzerland.

IChemE Awards

Chemistry Innovation handed out two awards on 5 October under the umbrella of IChemE’s annual awards programme, which recognises innovation and rewards excellence in the chemical and chemistry-using industries.







 

 Highly commended: Greenwich-Surrey QPM entry

 

 

The major networking event took place at the Banqueting House in Whitehall and 430 diners from the international process industries attended. The popular TV engineering enthusiast Adam Hart-Davis was on hand to tear open the envelopes and announce the winners.


“We are delighted to support IChemE’s innovation programme”, commented ceo Carol Boyer, who hosted two tables at the event.

 



 

 

Winner of the Innovation in Applied Catalysis & Colloid Science Award: Eindhoven University 

 

 

The 2006 Award for Innovation in Applied Catalysis and Colloid Science, presented by Hugo Steven, technical director, went to Eindhoven University of Technology for their new PrOx micro-reactor, which is designed to remove carbon monoxide from hydrogen gas for fuel cells.

 



 



 

 Highly commended: Merck & Co

 

 

 

In the same category Merck & Co were highly commended for their cleaner, faster and greener route to an atherosclerosis treatment, as was Greenwich and Surrey Universities’ project for quality in particulate-based manufacturing (QPM).

 



 

 

 

 Winner of the Green Chemical Technology Award: Carbon8

 

 

The 2006 Award for Green Chemical Technology, presented by Neville Hargreaves, commercial director, was accepted by the team from Carbon8. Their accelerated carbonation technology (ACT) aims to treat hazardous wastes and remediate contaminated land by carbonation. The process takes minutes rather than months, so is significantly quicker and more cost effective than alternatives.
