About F³ Factory

The F³ Factory consortium members believe that the EU chemical industry’s competitive position would be significantly enhanced if it could operate modular continuous plant (F³ Factory plant) for low to medium scale production rates.


As such, the F³ Factory project has united a wide variety of stakeholders from across EU member states around this common vision, mobilising a critical mass of research and innovation effort necessary to realise the project’s objectives.

The F³ Factory premise is that the operation of a modular, continuous F³ plant will be more economical and more sustainable than either the:

  • operation of continuous processes at world scale, or
  • operation of batch processes at low to medium scale.

The F³ Factory mode of production therefore combines the best of these two conventional production modes.
