Polymer reaction engineering (PRE) is a highly dynamic scientific field with multiple interfaces to different disciplines in science, industry, and business. The workshop aims to stimulate the development of polymer reaction engineering concepts to meet the requirements and expectations of industry and society in terms of improving energy, material, and investment efficiency in polymer production. Existing polymerization processes must be continuously improved and new processes developed to meet customer requirements. The almost universal variety of applications not only, but especially in important future fields such as such as indispensable materials for the energy transition, electrification of mobility and light weight construction either to reduce energy consumption or enable complex designs, as well as for modern manufacturing techniques require continuous progress in product and process design. Developing new catalysts and monomers, studying their kinetic and thermodynamic behavior are part of the scientific basis that must be translated then into process technologies that enable economical, robust, and safe production.
Among many other developments and implications, progress in polymer reaction engineering continues to be driven by increasing precision in polymer tailoring. The workshop also benefits significantly from process analytics and rapidly increasing capabilities in modeling and simulation (and thus control) of processes in the general field of reaction engineering.
The scientific committee, DECHEMA Society for Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology together with TU Darmstadt and Fraunhofer institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP cordially invite you to participate in the 14th International Workshop on Polymer Reaction Engineering in Potsdam/Germany.Visit Event Website Add to my calendar
