Process Development & Scale-up - Houston, TX

Seminar on Process Development & Scale-up in Chemical & Petrochemical Industries

Process Development and Scale-up in the Chemical and Petrochemical Industries - Houston, Texas
Process Development and Scale-up in the Chemical and Petrochemical Industries - Houston, Texas

Development of a chemical process requires informed decisions to optimize the process in the lab and ensure it is repeatable on scale-up. To facilitate this, researchers apply methodologies to gain a deeper, more fundamental process understanding. 

A free seminar on June 28, 2017 will examine the impact of applying process analytical techniques to improve product quality such as yield, purity, consistency; and improve process efficiency including speed, safety, cycle time, and throughput. The event features presentations and case studies from experts, including:

  • Uncovering Process Data Inconsistencies and Optimizing a Crystallization Process Using PAT
    Venkat Bhamidi, PhD - Eastman Chemical Company

  • Process Fundamentals for Enhanced Safety and Scale-up
    Allen Beard, PhD - Albemarle Corp

  • Polymerization and Process Optimization of Petroleum Resins
    Violeta Nasto - TOTAL Cray Valley (TCV)

  • Results of Dynamic FBRM Measurements in a Confined Impelled Stirrer Tank (CIST) for O/W, W/O, Phase Inversion, and Bitumen Dewatering Studies
    Marcio B. Machado, PhD - University of Alberta, Canada

  • Fermentation and Bioprocess Monitoring in the Chemical Industry
    Jim Cronin, PhD - METTLER TOLEDO (formerly of DuPont)
