Annual NWGD Symposium – Dialogue on Drying Technology

Thursday 22 September 2022 

Location: Wageningen Campus, Omnia, Wageningen Thursday 22 September 2022

The Netherlands Working Party on Drying (NWGD) invites you to the annual NWGD symposium on industrial drying. This year the symposium will be held live at the Wageningen University in the new Omnia building (Omnia: ruimte voor gesprek, inspiratie en ontmoeting – WUR).

During the symposium, speakers from companies, knowledge institutes and academia will present latest developments & innovations in the area of industrial drying, share challenges encountered in practice and strategies to optimise drying operations. There will be ample opportunity for networking, discussion and dialogue!

During our annual symposium we hear from different users about their experiences with industrial drying operations and new advances in drying research. We invited speakers from several knowledge institutes (e.g. TUD, WUR, and Wetsus) and companies (e.g. Schaffelaar, Bühler, Lyophitech) to present and discuss recent advances and best practices on drying technology. We also will have three pitches of start-up companies that have ambition to supply dried food ingredients but are still looking for the right drying technology.

For the second time we will organise a poster session and award two student poster prizes (1st prize, 1000 and 2nd prize 500 euros) for the best posters within the theme dewatering & drying technology. The prize should be used to visit an (inter)national conference on drying technology and a small oral presentation should be given during the NWGD symposium 2023 on the highlights of the visited congress.

Present your poster
If you want to present your poster, please submit a title, your name and a short abstract of your poster (max. 300 words) to before 1 September. Only students are eligible for the poster price. But it is noted that also others than students are invited to submit an abstract for a poster, e.g. introducing a new product / process, etc. We will have a limited number of place available for such posters.
