Bulk chemicals are typically produced using processes, which supply the product stream in a continuous manner. In contrast, the production of fine chemical and pharmaceutical ingredients is characterized by batch-wise operation, connected with dead times, fluctuating product qualities and reduced productivity. This contribution summarizes selected results of several research projects devoted to promote continuous production processes.
