2020 AIChE Fall Meeting
Nov 16 – Nov 20 all-day

2020 AIChE Fall Meeting, November 16-20, 2020, San Francisco, CA, USA

The fall meeting of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers always attracts thousands and thousands of participants and presenters from all over the world both from academia and industry. All process unit operations will be covered as well as break-through new process intensified technologies. I will probably participate.

ICFBB 2021 @ Paris
Jan 25 – Jan 26 all-day

ICFBB 2021 – Jan 25-26 2021 – Paris, France

The 15th International Conference on Food Biotechnology and Biorefining takes place on January 25-26, 2021 in Paris, France. This area is growing in importance and in diversity of technologies.

CHISA, 24th International Congress of Chemical and Process Engineering (postponed) @ Prague, Czech Republic
Mar 15 – Mar 18 all-day

CHISA, 24th International Congress of Chemical and Process Engineering,  Clarion Congress Hotel, Prague, Czech Republic.

This congress covers all aspects of chemical processing. It also has topics on educating sustainable chemical engineering. The participants are from mainly from academia, but also from industry. There is always a relatively large number of people from Eastern Europe, the middle-East and East-Asia; hence an extra opportunity to increase your network.
I will attend this meeting.

AIChE Spring Meeting @ Dallas, Texas

AIChE Spring meeting – April 18-22 2021 – Hilton Anatole, Dallas USA

AIChE 2021 Spring Meeting and 17th Global Congress on Process Safety
This meeting has a relatively high percentage of industry contributions.

IWA World Water Congress & Exhibition @ Copenhagen, Denmark
May 9 – May 14 all-day

IWA World Water Congress & Exhibition, Copenhagen, Denmark, 

Water processing is becoming more and more important in view of contributing to sustainable development goals. Water processing is about large scale processing at very low cost. This means that new technologies such a variable speed pumps replacing standard pumps and valves have been introduced in this field far earlier than in other process industry branches. So attending this congress to find cross-sectoral technologies should also be considered if you are outside this process branch.

ACHEMA 2021 @ Frankfurt am Main
Jun 14 – Jun 18 all-day

This is a very large process industries event. It not only has a large programme, but also has a very large exhibition for industries and institutes. Book a hotel early.

Sustainable Minerals ’21 – 23-24 Jun 2021 – Falmouth, UK

6th International Symposium on Sustainable Minerals. This could be an interesting symposium for people looking for circular economy solutions. Falmouth is a lovely market and marine town in the South-West of the UK.

ECCE13 & ECAB6 @ City Cube
Sep 19 – Sep 23 all-day

Chemical engineering, biotechnology and bioprocessing are the key to providing innovative solutions for food supply, mobility, energy, health and well-being while striving for a sustainable economy.

At ECCE 13 & ECAB 6, scientists from industry, university and research institutions from Europe and beyond will meet in Berlin to discuss the latest research and industrial applications in all fields of chemistry, process engineering, biotechnology and related fields.

Promoting interdisciplinary exchange and the transfer from research to industrial applications, these joint congresses cover the whole range of relevant topics from laboratory research via process development and chemical reaction engineering to challenges from industrial practice and overarching topics such as quality management and education.
