• Welcome to the world wide web site of the Working Party on Thermodynamics and Transport Properties (WP-TTP)

  • One of the seventeen WPs of the European Federation of Chemical Engineering (EFCE). 

  • The WP on TTP was formed in August 2006 by unanimous decision of the EFCE Executive Board.

Task group on Industrial Perspectives

Written by Christian Ove Carlsson.


The task group aims at promoting synergy between industrial and academic research. To that end, a survey of industrial need was performed and published.
The conclusions pointed towards the need for an improved understanding of and development of predictive modeling approaches in the field of electrolytes and large, complex molecules.
The availability and the standardization of such new approaches is pointed as an important criterion for acceptability.

A continuous effort is required for communicating between academia and industry on the development of innovative approaches. This is why a new Symposium was launched, called Industrial Use of Thermodynamics (IUT). So far, following symposia were held:

  • IUT1: InMoTher (Industrial use of Molecular Thermodynamics) was held in Lyon, France, in March 2012 with proceedings being published in OGST. On this occasion, a round table discussion was held focusing on the respective needs of industrial users, vendors and academics.

  • IUT2 was held in conjunction with the 27th European Seminar on Applied Thermodynamics (ESAT) in Eindhoven, July 2014. It was concluded with a new round table discussion on needs for innovation as seen by industry.

  • IUT3 was held during the tenth European Congress of Chemical Engineering (ECCE10) in Nice, France, September 2015. It comprised 5 sessions, including a round table discussion on the use of thermodynamics for energy efficiency.

  • IUT4 was held as a joint event during the 10th World Congress of Chemical Engineering, in Barcelona, Spain, October 1st – 5th, 2017. A round-table discussion was held in conjunction with the Working Party on Fluid Separation, on the topic of Data Management and Sensitivity Analysis.
