5th AIChE Southwest Process Technology Conference

Formerly the AIChE Regional Process Technology Conference
October 3-4, 2013

The South Texas Section of the AIChE, in partnership with AIChE HQ, hosted its 5th Southwest Process Technology Conference in Galveston, Texas. The conference provides technical sessions, industry solutions in process technology, and networking opportunities for the 490+ chemical engineers and students that attended.

See photos and highlights below.


In its first four years (2009 - 2012) the conference established a solid reputation within the process engineering community, attracting between 340 and 400 participants each year.

The Southwest Process Technology Conference (formerly the Regional Process Technology Conference) has become one of the nation’s premier conferences for the process industries. This year the venue has moved back to Moody Gardens in Galveston. Attendance averaged just under 400 at our first four Southwest Process Technology Conferences (2009 - 2012), and this year’s conference is expected be even bigger and better, with growing participation from the largest concentration of petroleum refining, chemical processing, and engineering and construction firms in the United States. You don’t want to miss it.
