Presentation by Tom Schafer, Co-founder and Vice President at Koch Modular, to take place on Wednesday, March 27th, 2024, at 4:30 pm CST.

PARAMUS, N.J., March 18, 2024—Koch Modular Process Systems (Koch Modular), a market-leading provider of engineered and fabricated modular mass transfer systems for the chemical processing industry, is proud to announce their participation in the upcoming AIChE Spring Meeting and 20th Global Congress Conference on Process Safety. The event, which will take place at the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, LA, from March 24 to March 28, 2024, will provide a crucial platform for Koch Modular to showcase their contributions to the clean energy landscape. 

As the premier technical conference for practicing chemical and process safety engineers, the AIChE Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety serves as an essential gathering to address the industry's critical needs.

Tom Schafer, Co-founder and Vice President of Koch Modular, will be delivering a presentation on March 27th at 4:30pm CST in Room 203-204. Schafer's presentation will explore the pivotal role of modular pilot and demonstration scale plants in expediting the global transition to clean energy solutions. His abstract outlines the transformative potential of these systems in accelerating innovation processes, reducing project timelines, and managing risks associated with clean energy projects.

“We are excited to share our insights on the transformative potential of modular pilot and demonstration scale plants in driving the adoption of clean energy solutions," says Schafer. "Our presentation will highlight real-world success stories and provide invaluable insights into the incorporation of modular pilot scale plants within project development processes."

Attendees can expect to gain a deeper understanding of the importance of modular pilot scale plants in various clean energy applications, including biomass-to-chemicals, regenerative agriculture-to-food-and-biofuel, biomass-to-biofuel, and carbon capture systems. Additionally, Schafer will discuss key design considerations, project delivery insights, and commercialization benefits associated with these innovative systems.
