13th European Congress of Chemical Engineering and 6th European Congress of Applied Biotechnology

Thank you for attending ECCE/ECAB 2021.


Chemical engineering, biotechnology and bioprocessing are more important than ever to meet current challenges thus as climate change, circular economy or pharmaceutical production. To enable an international scientific exchange despite restrictions that are expected to be still in place in September 2021, the 13th European Congress of Chemical Engineering and 6th European Congress of Applied Biotechnology from 20-23 September 2021 took place virtualy! 

We hope you enjoyed the diversified four day programme with more than 500 lectures and 13 tracks. 

Features of ECCE 13 & ECAB 6

We have taken advantage of the opportunities offered by a virtual event to stimulate a truly European and global dialogue between scientists from industry, universities and research institutions from Europe and beyond. To promote interdisciplinary exchange and transfer from research to industrial application, ECCE and ECAB have covered the full range of relevant topics, from laboratory research, process development and chemical reaction engineering to challenges from industrial practice and cross-cutting issues such as quality management and education. A virtual poster exhibition with discussion opportunities, interactive workshops and high-level plenary lectures have complemented the scientific programme.

Answers to societal challenges

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.
