Working Party on Crystallization

Welcome to the website of the EFCE Working Party on Crystallization.
 

Principal activities of the Working Party

 

  • Organization of triennial International Symposium on Industrial Crystallization  and specialized scientific meetings and workshops

    Safe the date!  
    The 21st International Symposium on Industrial Crystallization - ISIC 21 will be held in Potsdam, Germany, on 8-11 September 2020

  • Exchange of information about activities of national working parties on crystallization of the EFCE member countries

  • Fostering links to other working parties within EFCE which are active in adjacent areas, such as mixing, reaction engineering, filtration and separation, drying, agglomeration, comminution and classification, characterization of particulate systems

  • Evaluation and standardization of methods of measurement; definition of terminology, symbols and units in the field of industrial crystallization
     
  • Development of training at undergraduate and postgraduate level

 

Business Meeting

The next business meeting of the WP will take place in Florence, Italy in September 2019 in conjunction with ECCE12&ECAB5.

 

Objective of the Working Party

Advancement of the theory and practice of crystallization as it relates to the production of bulk crystalline materials ....
