Innovation is the catalyst for sustainable product development
Process Intensification, now well recognized as one of the most important recent developments in chemical engineering, provides innovative principles and methods to enable sustainable product manufacturing.
EPIC2013 is the fourth Conference in the series of European Process Intensification Conferences that are held under the auspices of the EFCE Working Party on Process Intensification (WP PI). The previous EPIC conferences were held in Copenhagen (2007), Venice (2009) and Manchester (2011).
Integrated in the European Congress of Chemical Engineering, EPIC2013 provides an excellent opportunity for academicians, industrialists and technology providers to present the latest developments on Process Intensification in the academic and industrial sphere and communicate their present views and vision for the future to the largest possible audience.
We would like to draw your attention to the following highlights:
- Selected abstracts will be invited for full paper publication in a special issue of Chemical Engineering and Processing: Process Intensification Journal.
- Immediately after the EPIC2013 a "How to teach Process Intensification" Workshop will be held in Delft (only 10 minutes from The Hague). More information here.
- The biennial EFCE Excellence Award in Process Intensification will be awarded during EPIC for an outstanding PhD thesis in the field of process intensification. The deadline for nominations is December 15, 2012.
As chairmen of EPIC2013, we have the pleasure to invite you to actively participate in the conference by submitting work in any of the themes highlighted in the call for abstracts.
Tom van Gerven
