During the annual NWGD symposium we will host about 100 drying experts from industry & academia to listen to presentations about new developments in the field of industrial dewatering & drying. Drying is one of the most energy intensive unit operations in processing industry and responsible for 10-15% of the total industrial energy use!
This year’s theme: ‘Reducing the carbon footprint and energy use in industrial drying processes‘.
Registration is closed – We are full!
Besides presentations there is an interactive session and ample opportunity to network during lunch and even a symposium dinner will be organized in the high-end restaurant of Omnia. There will also be the possibility to present a poster representing your company or illustrating your research project.
