Highlights

Section on Product Design and Engineering

 
Background and History


Background:


    Chemical product design and engineering may be considered as a new branch of the general chemical engineering discipline.
It is applied in many industrial areas, such as pharmaceutical, biomedical, food and feed products, cosmetics, adhesives, coatings, composites, etc.
This discipline comprises four major elements:

  • structured product design and engineering methodology covering all elements in the product supply chain
  • molecular design and engineering of properties
  • understanding of molecular/micro-structure and product performance relationships
  • insight into molecular/micro-structure and processing relationships

 


 
History:

    The EFCE Section on Product Design and Engineering (PD&E) was founded in 2003 during the first EFCE-sponsored PD&E Conference held in Granada, Spain. The Section was created in response to the increasing demand of the chemical-based product industries. So far, the Section has organisedseveral biennial conferences on product design and engineering: Granada, Spain (2003); Groningen, The Netherlands (2005), Copenhagen, Denmark (2007); Montreal, Canada (2009) and Berlin, Germany (2011).
