2nd European Process Intensification Conference
Venice - Italy, 14 - 17 June 2009




With the first edition of the EPIC 2007 (European Process Intensification Conference), EFCE (European Federation of Chemical Engineering) Working Party on Process Intensification (PI) has launched a new series of biannual European conferences focused on Process Intensification (PI). “Process Intensification provides radically innovative principles in process and equipment design which can benefit process and chain efficiency, capital and operating expenses, quality, wastes, process safety and more” (from the study “European Roadmap for Process Intensification”, 2008).
PI is a new approach to process and plant design that greatly contributes to increase the economic and environmental sustainability through resources minimization (energy and feedstock), improved environmental and safety performance.
EPIC 2009 represents a great opportunity for the participants (scientists, researchers, practitioners, and technology providers) to discuss and share experiences on the current-status of the field, the latest developments, and the future needs. The conference focuses primarily on illustrating and discussing how the interactions among phenomena, equipments, and operations can contribute to enhance the processing performance efficiency. Contributions discussing innovative concepts and ideas, application-oriented technologies, and interdisciplinary research are welcome.
EPIC 2009 will be jointly organized with GPE 2009 because the two conference objectives integrate themselves. While GPE mainly focuses on the processes and technologies that provide the tools for “green chemistry”, EPI tackles the methodologies and technologies that result in improved sustainability, efficiency and environmental performance.
