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”,
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
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.
