International Conference on Chemical Reactors is being held every two years since its foundation in the 1960s. The XX International Conference on Chemical Reactors (CHEMREACTOR-20) took place on December 3–7, 2012 in Luxemburg. This event was organized by Boreskov Institute of Catalysis SB RAS and European Federation of Chemical Engineering with participation of Russian Scientific and Cultural Center in Luxemburg, Russian Federal Agency “Rossotrudnichestvo”, Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation, RAS Scientific Council on Theoretical Fundamentals of Chemical Technology and RAS Scientific Council on Catalysis. The conference brought together more than 130 researchers and engineers from 25 countries all over the world. The conference was traditionally devoted to the fundamental aspects and practical application of the catalytic processes and chemical reactors, as well as to the development of the novel technologies.
The principle objective of the CHEMREACTOR conference is to give a wide overview about recent achievements in the field of the chemical reaction engineering, to discuss the latest advances. The event is targeted at provision of a venue for the fruitful interaction and exchange of ideas, for estimation and discussion of the current state of novel technologies developing on principally new methods of catalytic processes realization in reactors of new type. The conference participants noted the high level of the presentations, especially plenary lectures. About 50 papers were considered for the publication in the Chemical Engineering Journal. After the strong conference and journal selection the most interesting papers are presented in the current special issue.
