Chemical engineering, biotechnology and bioprocessing are the key to providing innovative solutions for food supply, mobility, energy, health and well-being while striving for a sustainable economy.
At ECCE 13 & ECAB 6, scientists from industry, university and research institutions from Europe and beyond will meet in Berlin to discuss the latest research and industrial applications in all fields of chemistry, process engineering, biotechnology and related fields.
Promoting interdisciplinary exchange and the transfer from research to industrial applications, these joint congresses cover the whole range of relevant topics from laboratory research via process development and chemical reaction engineering to challenges from industrial practice and overarching topics such as quality management and education.
Energy generation and storage, the development of new materials, or the strive for more sustainability in process and product design - none of these challenges can be resolved without the active participation of chemical processing and biotechnology. From the optimization and integration of unit operations that rely on progress in separation technology, a deep understanding of heat and mass transfer, the handling of multiphase systems or new developments in membrane engineering, to plant design, process system engineering and chemical reaction engineering, chemical and process engineering are working to provide the technology and material platforms our industrial landscape is founded on.
Increasing integration of chemical engineering and biotechnology
Driven not least by the shift towards renewable ressources, chemical and biotechnological process steps are increasingly going hand in hand. Integrated process design covers everything from the development of new production systems by synthetic biology to strain optimization, reactor design, process intensification and the downstream processing of bioproducts. ECCE 13 & ECAB 6 brings chemical engineers and biotechnologists together to discuss how to combine the best of both worlds in efficient and sustainable processes.
