Why PDS 2014?
Our planet and civilization are constantly changing. Over time, new and more complex challenges emerge requiring innovative, sustainable solutions to stay pace with these changes. We, the practicing engineering community are vitally important in providing solutions to these challenges whether in the energy, food, water, and health sectors or in wide spectrum of other areas.
The very essence of chemical engineering is “Process Development.” For the 2014 Process Development Symposium, we have lined up a number of speakers from the chemical engineering profession to share wisdom, knowledge, tips, and personal experiences in the development and scale-up of chemical processes. Topics will cover a wide gamut of relevance to the chemical industry including development approaches for key unit operations, emerging technologies, processing at extreme conditions, typical problems encountered upon scale up, selecting batch or continuous processes, and modeling and computational approaches to process development. Discussions will include many case studies to illustrate these topics and more. Mark your calendar and make it a priority to join us in June in the Greater Philadelphia area to learn, share, and network with your process development colleagues.
