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
     
  • 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
