Sustaining the Future – webinar series
Every Wednesday in November | 15:00 – 16:30
This year the Netherlands Process Technology Symposium was going to be held at TU Delft on 4-5 November 2020. Due to the uncertainties surrounding covid-19, the event is now postponed to 2021.
However, in order to provide an opportunity for the Dutch Process Technology community to connect and exchange ideas, this year NPS17 will take a new form: a series of webinars taking place in November 2020, within the overarching theme of “Sustaining the future”, organized by TU Delft with support of ISPT. The webinars will also include pitch presentations for networking by PhD students and postdocs.
- Wednesday 4 November, 15.00: Energy
- Wednesday 11 November, 15.00: Circularity
- Wednesday 18 November, 15.00: Water
- Wednesday 25 November, 15.00: Health, food and pharma
Program details about key note speakers and panel members can be found on the different webinar pages (click on the relevant webinar above).
Sustaining the Future means developing new process routes, and re-innovating processes by applying known technologies across various industries. It is necessary to rethink the way industrial plants are designed and to bring engineering to the digital century to optimize process control. Examples include:
- Delocalizing the industry to save energy and other resources.
- Connecting processes.
- Using advanced/ remote process control to optimize processes for a better use of resources.
- Developing new process routes (CO2 as energy source or as chemical bond for further products).
- Re-formulating consumer products based on sustainable ingredients and with reduced health or environmental impact.
- Planning/ designing/ developing digitally to save resources and share knowledge all over the world.
- Augmented reality for knowledge transfer, more safety and connectivity.
