Sustainable Product and Process Design @ online
Feb 3 – Feb 5 all-day
Sustainable Product and Process Design @ online

Summary

This 3-day online course Sustainable Product and Process Design provides engineers with the necessary information to design sustainable processes, products and value chains. You will understand all of the design steps: from problem definition, via synthesis of potential solutions, analysis of solutions, improvements to the final solution evaluation. For each design step, methods and guidelines are provided in relation to the goal of obtaining the best solution; a solution that meets both the needs of the client within the specific constraints of our sustainability goals.
Who should attend?
  • Product and Process Designers
  • Product Developers
  • Industrial R&D Practitioners

From the chemical, refining, fine chemicals, food & beverage, paper & pulp, steel, biomass processing industries.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand different concept design methods
  • Evaluate economic performance against environmental and sustainability goals
  • Define functional unit
  • Understand different product and process concept design methods
  • Interactive lectures supported by real industry case studies
  • Learn from workshops solving real industry problems

Key Topics

  • Concept Design
  • Life cycle Assessment (LCA) for Environmental Impact
  • Scenario’s for robustness to future uncertainties
  • Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) theory
  • Sustainable Development Goals and Targets
  • Circular Economy and Industrial Symbiosis

Programme

  • Hours of interactive learning
  • Training materials in digital format
  • All delegates will receive digital & LinkedIn certificates
  • Fully interactive online format with online workshops in breakout rooms

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.

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.

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.
