Focuses on the key topics of Energy, Biotechnology and Food, Water Management and Treatment, and Industrial ecosystems


Plenary Speakers

  • Scott Fogler (USA) Applications of Chemical Engineering to Upstream Engineering
  • Flavio Manenti (Italy) Perspectives for CO2 Utilization
  • Inmaculada Ortiz (Spain) Separation challenges in the quest for sustainability
  • Juergen Pleiss (Germany) Biocatalysis/Protein Enzyme Stability
  • Marinke Wijngaard (the Netherlands ) Chemical recycling of complex plastics

Mini-Symposium on Energy and Chemical Engineering
The EFCE Energy Section will be organising a Mini-Symposium on “Energy and chemical engineering”. The energy transition and the mitigation of the CO2 emissions are key challenges for the chemical engineering community. On the one hand, energy is the main driver of the chemical industry and on the other hand, chemical engineering is a key discipline for the supply of energy services.

These include the energy conversion, the CO2 capture and reuse and the integration of renewable energy sources.
In particular, the topics of interest will be:

  • Energy and resource efficiency in the chemical and process industry;
  • Energy conversion, renewable energy and CO2 mitigation;
  • Wastewater-energy nexus; Chemical engineering for fuels and transportation;
  • Biofuels and biorefineries;
  • CO2 capture & reuse;
  • Energy storage & electrochemical processes

Mini-Symposium on Continuous Manufacturing
Continuous manufacturing has been recognized as the biggest opportunity for further optimization of the production of biopharmaceuticals and industrial enzymes in a more efficient way. This has the potential to significantly lower the production costs and enable accessibility of biologics to a much wider population, including developing countries, and to reduce the environmental footprint, and improve product quality. Despite the advantages of continuous manufacturing,
the vast majority of biologics is still produced entirely in batch mode, and the product recovery is completely performed in a batchwise manner. With this mini symposium we expect to address several topics including economic and environmental modelling, miniaturization, scale-up and scale-down of unit operations and process design and development of integrated continuous downstream processes, which will contribute to the intensification of the downstream processing of biological products and to train scientists in the field of continuous downstream

Mini-Symposium on Crystallization fundamentals and industrial processes
The mini-symposium offers a platform to the crystallization community for international exchange between scientists and engineers of all disciplines, academia and industry, and between novice and expert. Crystallization takes place in most natural physical, biological, and chemical systems, and is exploited today in thousands of applications, from the production of commodities to that of pharmaceuticals, food ingredients and fine chemicals. Research is active on a broad range of topics from fundamentals to industrial applications, and has led to new breakthrough results and innovative products in recent years.

Crystallization’s stimulating challenges and exciting opportunities make it a very inspiring and rewarding scientific and technical field. Topics:

  • Fundamentals of Crystallization;
  • Process Analytical Tools in Crystallization;
  • Modeling of Crystallization Processes, incl. Mixing;
  • Crystallization Processes;
  • Industrial Applications
