Welcome by the Congress Chair

'Shaping a sustainable future'

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to what will be the most comprehensive Chemical and Biochemical Engineering Congress in the history of the European Federation of Chemical Engineering (EFCE).

Its programme will cover the widest range of subjects relevant to process technology, such as process intensification, renewable feed stocks, sustainable value chains, product design and biotechnology.

Plenary lectures by renowned speakers will provide overviews of different aspects of the Congress theme:

Shaping a sustainable future: a partnership of academia, industry and society.

High-quality presentations

High-quality presentations in 18 parallel sessions each day will provide results of the latest research and development and industrial applications. Several special events will be organized for students, such as poster competitions and a design competition.

Lunches, dinners and evening programmes will provide opportunities for socializing and networking.

Delegates will learn about the latest practical developments at a large industrial exhibition which will also be part of the Congress.


We look forward to welcoming you in The Hague in April 2013 and invite you to submit your abstracts before 15 November 2012 in order to secure a platform for your latest work!
