10 CONCLUSIONS CFD SIMULATIONS CONFIRM THAT ROTATING FLUIDIZED BEDS IN A STATIC GEOMETRY: Offer an increased specific fluidization flow rate Offer increased flexibility with respect to cooling or heating via the fluidization flow rate Offer the potential of -solid heat and mass transfer coefficients one to several orders of magnitude higher than in Conventional Fluidized Bed. Offer improved particle bed temperature uniformity due to excellent mixing resulting from the particle bed rotational motion PERSPECTIVES FOR USE OF ROTATING FLUIDIZED BEDS IN A STATIC GEOMETRY FOR FAST, HIGHLY ENDO- OR EXOTHERMIC REACTIONS OR FOR DRYING APPLICATIONS 10
