The 16th European Conference on Mixing will be held from 9-12 September 2018 in Toulouse, France. This successful conference series, which is organized by the European Federation of Chemical Engineering ¨C Working Party on Mixing, has been running since 1974 and attracts academics and industrialists from all over the world to discuss progress on mixing technology, research and applications in the process industries.
The conference covers mixing in batch, semi-batch and continuous flows, as well as in novel equipment types, including those used for process intensification. It welcomes works employing experimental and/or numerical techniques (e.g. CFD) to explore challenges in the following core mixing topics:
- Single phase mixing, from turbulent to laminar flow
- Dispersions and multiphase mixing
- Mixing of products high viscosity and complex rheology
- Mixing in reactive flows
- Heat transfer and mixing
Applications extend to a wide range of industries, including fine chemicals, agrichemicals, pharmaceuticals, petrochemicals, biotechnology, polymer processing, cosmetics and consumer products, food, water treatment, pulp and paper, and minerals processing.
