The Birmingham Conference and Events Centre | Birmingham, UK
Spaces available

Event overview

The 10th Winter Process Conference will showcase presentations from International Chemists covering all aspects of Process Development.

The speakers will discuss the latest issues in synthetic route design, development and optimisation, reactor design, work up and purification, crystallisation, process engineering, hazard studies and quality and regulatory issues.

The presentations will be either from speakers within the chemical industry or academics with a strong link to industrial process development so the material presented with be of particular relevance to all chemists and engineers in industry as well as graduate students considering a career in industry.

YOUNG CHEMIST AWARD
