Transfer window: A holistic concept for sustainable process development through process intensification due to microprocess technology in combination with novel process windows is presented. Process modeling and simulation linked with simplified cost and lifecycle assessment provide valuable information to guide the ongoing design of a continuously running pilot-process for the epoxidation of soybean oil (see picture).
