Online seminar on Process Intensification on Dec 2, 2020
The European Federation of Chemical Engineers (EFCE) is organising a series of free virtual spotlight talks on significant topics in Chemical Engineering. Their technical groups are delivering short sessions of three or four talks by leading industrial and academic experts on: Chemical Reaction Engineering, Education, Energy, Loss Prevention and Process Safety, Mechanics of Particulate Solids, Mixing, Multiphase Flow, Process Intensification, Quality by Design, Static Electricity in industry, Thermodynamics and Transport Properties.
Each session will focus on key topics in the area and the series enables attendees to sample topics in areas that they find interesting but may not otherwise have had the opportunity to attend to encourage cross fertilisation between specialist areas.
On december 2, 2020 the virtual seminar ‘Lifelong Learning of Process Intensification for an Innovative Industry’ will take place and Maarten Verkerk and I will be talking about Process Intensification training for Industry.
