World Chemical Engineering Congress

Written by Jean-Charles de-hemptinne.

Dear colleagues,

Please be aware of the upcoming World Chemical Engineering Congress that will take place in Barcelona on 1-5 october 2017. Deadline for abstract submission is February 28th.

The Industrial Use of Thermodynamics (IUT) symposium will be opportunity to create a forum for exchange between the EFCE Working Parties on Thermodynamics and Transport Properties and on Fluid Separation Processes.

  • Keynote-Tutorials are planned on the Selection of reliable Data and Adequate Models for Sustainable Process and Product Desing
  • A round-table discussion on Data Quality and Assessment, Validation methods and Error Propagation through the Simulation Software. This will be a unique opportunity to share on the challenges related to the design of complex separation processes.

Your input will be highly appreciated, either submitting an abstract or simply by attending the sessions.   

Best regards,

Jean-Charles de Hemptinne

IFP School Professor
