Working Party on Comminution and Classification

The EFCE Working Party on Comminution and Classification was started by Professor Hans Rumpf who was succeeded by Professor Klaus Schönert, both contributing immensely to the science of comminution and classification. He was succeeded by Professor Eric Forssberg, Sweden, who chaired the Working Party from 1995 to 2007, followed by Prof. Kari Heiskanen,  Finland, who took over the Chair in May 2007. In September 2011, Prof. Arno Kwade was elected by the Working Party members to succeed Prof. Kari Heiskanen in the position of Chair of the Working Party.

ESCC brings together individuals from industry and academia who are interested in comminution and classification applications. The symposium offers a platform for contacts between different fields from pharmaceuticals through food processing to heavier applications in mineral processing. Furthermore, the symposium has a strong post-graduate thrust providing research students with the opportunity to present their research to colleagues.


Working Party meetings

The Working Party Comminution and Classification meets at least once per year for a workshop and industrial visits combined with the business meeting.
