Historically two Dutch societies, the Royal Netherlands Chemical Society and the Royal Institute of Engineers in The Netherlands, had Chemical Engineers among their members. Twenty years ago these engineers decided to form one organization, NPT, The Netherlands’ Process Technologists.

NPT organises seminars and congresses, company visits and the publication of its own journal.

Its activities have been organised into seven broad categories:

  • Bulk Production & Energy
  • Specialties & biotechnology
  • Product-technology &Materials
  • Automation & Engineering
  • Trends & Strategy in R&D
  • Safety & Sustainability
  • Education & Career

NPT is very proud to have been given the opportunity to organise the 9th edition of ECCE on behalf of EFCE, the European Federation of Chemical Engineers.
