18th European Symposium on Comminution & Classification (ESCC)

The event aims to widen the scope of the comminution and classification field to include the fundamentals of breakage, advanced modelling of fine/coarse comminution and classification processes and their applications for various industries such as mineral processing, bio-refinery, food, pharmaceutical, chemical, electronic and materials industries with waste recycling. 


  • Fundamentals of particle breakage
  • Innovative methods for particulate characterization
  • Coarse grinding and classification processes, especially for minerals, ores, cement and other materials
  • Grinding, dispersing and classification of fine particles, micro- and nanomilling applied to pharmaceutical, chemical, material, and electronic industries
  • Cell disintegration and recovery of high value-added products in biorefinery, green processes, food industries
  • Comminution and separation in recycling industries and waste processing: plastic wastes, WEEE, MSW, construction and demolition wastes, agricultural wastes, used solar panels, used wind turbines, and other wastes
  • Mechanochemical and mechanofusion processes, mechanical bulk and surface transformations, mechanical alloying
  • Transport and process modelling across length scales (CFD, multiphase flow, DEM, PBM, …)
  • Wear, erosion and product contamination
  • Plant operation, innovations in milling and classification technologies including automation, machine learning, in line sensors, simulation of particle breakage and milling operations, either by physical, AI or hybrid models
  • Control of milling and classification processes
