October 10-13, 2010
Polymer reaction engineering (PRE) encompasses and influences a wide field of engineering and scientific disciplines, as well as issues related to industry, economy and society. This triannual International Workshop gathers and evaluates new concepts und advances in technology. Developments in other engineering areas and progress in industry are given a forum for discussion.
Polymer reaction engineering is expected to contribute its share to improving the efficiency of energy, materials and investment. This in turn leads to enhanced economic and environmental sustainability in industry. The workshop targets this general expectation in several areas. Inventive polymerisation processes will open new gateways by using innovative and improved forms of energy input, energy transfer, new reaction media, alternative reactors and processing systems. Leading edge catalysis will enable new processes and improve existing ones. Basic understanding of processes will be enhanced through modelling and simulation. At the same time the design of fresh processes as well as the optimisation of existing ones will be facilitated. Renewable, biologically based monomers, which avoid polution and hazards contribute to sustainability, especially alongside polymers whose life cycle has been optimised. These targets must be correlated with the wide range of general aspects of polymer processes, physical properties and polymerisation chemistry.
The Scientific Committee is pleased to invite you to this International Workshop in Hamburg. Proceedings of the Workshop will be published in the WILEY-VCH series “Macromolecular Symposia”. A copy of the proceedings is part of the conference fee of each regular participant. The proceedings will be published and shipped to the participants some months after the workshop.
DECHEMA Society for Chemical Technology and Biotechnology and The University of Hamburg cordially invite you to participate in the 10th International Workshop on Polymer Reaction Engineering in Hamburg/Germany.
