ParTec 2019




PARTEC is one of the world’s major scientific congresses for particle and bulk solids technology. Every three years, it provides an international forum for R&D in new technologies. It runs concurrently with POWTECH, the leading trade fair for the mechanical processing, analysis, and handling of powder and bulk solids.

In 2019 PARTEC will take a holistic view of particle technology and will explore a range of processes including particle formation, particle characterization, measuring methods and agglomeration, formulation and coating. In particular, it will provide fresh impetus for the characterization and dynamic simulation of interconnected solids processes. “Particle technology is a very wide field and indispensable for daily life.” concludes PARTEC Chair Professor Stefan Heinrich.”This diversity will be reflected by PARTEC 2019

Granulation Workshop 2019

The 9th International Granulation Workshop will be taking place in Lausanne, Switzerland. The granulation conference is the place to showcase the latest in agglomeration, granulation and particle technology with attendance from a range of universities and industry worldwide.

Presentation Award (PBM 2018)

Mr. Christoph Neugebauer of Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg, who is co-supervised by Prof. Bück within the DFG priority programme 1679 (“Dynamic simulation of interconnected solids processes”), received the presentation award of the 6th International Conference on Population Balance Modelling in Ghent for the presentation “Influence of thermal conditions on particle properties in fluidised bed layering granulation”, which is joint work of the groups of Profs Kienle, Palis and Tsotsas (all OvGU) and Prof. Bück (FAU). Congratulations!

SPG welcomes Prof. J. Kumar

The Solids Processing Group (SPG) welcomes Prof. Jitendra Kumar of IIT Kharagpur! Prof. Kumar, one of the foremost experts in the development and application of numerical methods for the solution of population balance equations (PBE), will spend two months in the group as an Alexander von Humboldt fellow, working on PBEs in the context of fragmentation.
