PARTEC, the international congress for particle technology to be held in Nuremberg alongside POWTECH (9–11 April 2019), brings together scientists and engineers every three years and covers topics like particle formation, agglomeration and coating processes, as well as diverse industrial applications for particles.

As one of the world’s leading congresses for particle technology, PARTEC gathers the professional community in Nuremberg every three years. PARTEC is organised by NürnbergMesse/DE and is sponsored by the the German VDI Association of Process and Chemical En­gin­eering (GVC). The event also receives support from numerous other associations and organisations.
The theme of PARTEC 2019 is “Particles for a Better Life”, more than 500 scientists and researchers are expected to attend the English-language congress. The PARTEC Executive Committee chaired by Prof. Stefan Heinrich has announced the keynote speakers and topics which reflect the importance of particle technology:
• Prof. Dr Alan W. Weimer, University of Colorado/US: Particle Functionalization by ALD: Fundamentals, Applications, and Path Forward
• Prof. Mojtaba Ghadiri, University of Leeds/GB: Dynamics of Cohesive Powder Flow
• Prof. Karen Hapgood, Deakin University/AU: Particle Technology in Additive Manufacturing
• Prof. Jim Litster, University of Sheffield/GB: Model Driven Design of Particulate Processes and Products – Applications in Pharmaceutical Manufacture and Beyond
• Prof. Dr-Ing. Evangelos Tsotsas, Otto-von-Guericke-Universität Magdeburg/DE: Engineering of Particles by Spray Drying and Spray Fluidized Bed Processes
• Prof. Hamid Arastoopour, Illinois Institute of Technology/US: Contribution of Particle Technology Research on CO2 Capture and Reduction.
The PARTEC programme includes over 250 lectures and presentations. As honorary sponsor of the congress, the VDI-GVC will also be awarding its Friedrich Löffler Prize for Young Scientists. A poster exhibition and comprehensive supporting programme are a fitting complement to the international particle summit.
