A New EFCE Event Series
With the support of the French Chemical Engineering Society (SFGP)
Spring 2018, Paris France
3D printing offers a new and large field of exciting applications to the process industries.
Chemical Engineering is involved at mulitple levels as the printer could be considered as a mini-plant, central to the preparation of the raw material, which requires special properties; the design of the printer (considering energy, pollutants, recycle, gas emmission capture ...); and the determination of the optimal operating conditions.
3D printing offers the possibility of manufacturing products and objects (heat exchanger, miniaturized reactors, impellers, packing elements ...) with innovative and special designs that cannot be easily made with current manufacturing techniques.
All of these aspects will be dealt with during the 1st European Forum on New Technologies.
