The Scale-Up of Chemical Processes conference 2017

Whether you are a chemist, chemical engineer, QA or safety specialist, your aims when scaling up your process are often the same:

Achieving greater process efficiency, yield and throughput.
Eliminating unsafe and non-green processes and materials.
Decreasing the costs and number of steps involved.

Since the first conference in 1994, The Scale-Up of Chemical Processes has become the major international forum for the discussion of all these aspects of scale-up and more in the pharmaceutical, fine chemical and allied fields.

Key speakers presenting case studies and examples of some of the pitfalls and problems they encountered and how they overcame them. With unparalleled networking opportunities, this broad-based conference is the best place to learn about and discuss the latest novel ideas and techniques with the key people in the industry.

This year, the conference takes place in Rochester, NY from 21-23 June and includes speakers such as:

  • Jim Bruno, (Chemical & Pharmaceutical Solutions, USA)
  • Wim Dermaut, (Agfa Materials, Belgium)
  • Emma McInturff, (Pfizer, USA)
  • Vincent Ferey, (Sanofi, France)
  • John W. Harder, (Kodak, USA)
  • Sebastian Härtner, (EMD Performance Materials, Germany)

Bio-Resources: Feeding a Sustainable Chemical Industry – Faraday Discussion

The upcoming Faraday Discussion meeting on Bio-Resources: Feeding a Sustainable Chemical Industry will be held in London, UK on 19–21 June 2017.

This Faraday Discussion aims to address some of the critical issues in bio-resources, with themes on bio-based materialsbio-based chemicalsconversion technologies and feedstocks and analysis, by bringing together experts in different but complementary areas in the chemical sciences.

Faraday Discussions have a special format where research papers written by the speakers are distributed to all participants before the meeting, and most of the meeting is devoted to discussing the papers. Everyone contributes to the discussion – including presenting their own slide if it aids discussion. The discussion is recorded and will be published alongside the research papers in the Faraday Discussion Volume. Find out more about Faraday Discussions on the FAQs page.

Confirmed speakers:

Poster submission deadline is 10 April – find out more about how to submit and register for the event here.
