Challenges in Powder Technology

an NWGD event on Wednesday 19 June in Wageningen
The Netherlands Working Group on Drying (NWGD) invites you to the NWGD day on Challenges in powder technology. We have an exciting program (see below) with speakers from companies, knowledge institutes and academia who will present their latest research, developments & innovations in the area of powder technology.

The powder and drying industry make a variety of powder and granule products. Many developments are taking place in this field. On this NWGD day, we offer a number of active players a platform to showcase their powders and technology.

You can check out the program below.

Between the presentations, there will be plenty of time for exchanging experiences and networking.

This day will be held at Hotel de Nieuwe Wereld, part of the Rijn IJssel college in Wageningen. We expect around 100 participants, being a mix from academia, institutes, equipment suppliers and end-user companies.
