Dr.-Ing. Christian Rieck of Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg, who is supervised by Prof. Tsotsas (Thermal Process Engineering at OVGU) and co-supervised by Prof. Bück (FAU), received the EFCE Award 2021 in section Product Design & Engineering. The awarding session will be held at the 13th European Congress of Chemical Engineering and 6th European Congress of Applied Biotechnology (ECCE & ECAB 2021) in Berlin, Germany, from 20 – 23 September 2021.


Prof. Bück: Program committee of new DFG Priority Programme

In its spring session, the German Research Foundation (DFG) approved the creation of a new priority programme “SPP 2364 — Autonome Partikelprozesse” headed by Prof. Nirschl of KIT, Germany. Prof. Bück is serving as a member of the programme committee formulating and implementing the vision of the priority programme.

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
