4th AIChE Regional Process Technology Conference

October 4-5, 2012

The South Texas Section of the AIChE, in partnership with AIChE HQ, is hosting its 4th Regional Process Technology Conference at the South Shore Harbour Resort and Conference Center, on the shores of Clear Lake in League City, Texas, October 4 & 5, 2012. The conference provides technical sessions, industry solutions in process technology, and networking opportunities.

In its first three years (2009, 2010, and 2011) the conference established a solid reputation within the process engineering community, attracting between 340 and 400 participants each year.
