The heart of many Chemical Engineering operations is the chemical reactor. This laboratory offers team-based and student-defined projects investigating reaction engineering problems in areas of interest within the chemical industry. To enhance the practical knowledge of industrial application of chemical reaction engineering a number of reactors like CSTR, Plug flow reactor, batch reactor, sonochemical reactor, photo chemical reactor etc are available in this laboratory.
