Dustiness Day 2024 - Seminar


Dustiness day 2024

In October 2024 we will organize in close collaboration with a number of partner companies and organizations the Dustiness day 2024 covering different themes associated with dust and small particles.

Lectures will be devoted to e.g.


  • Sources of dust formation
  • Health Safety Environment
  • Dustiness regulations  – EFSA / REACH
  • Dust mitigation by dust filtration
  • Dust explosions
  • Dustiness suppression during powder processing
  • Dustiness monitoring in workplace and environment
  • Qualification and quantification of dustiness potential of products
  • Prediction of human exposure to airborne matter

The seminar offers an interactive program designed for anyone who is working in the field of powders and solid materials in general. Especially those who are working with fine particles, where small particles are created due to processing and e.g. attrition, and anyone who is exposed to dust and airborne solid matter. Besides the lecture program, also a hands-on session is scheduled in the program. In this hands-on session the participants  will work in teams on various case studies that are thereafter interactively discussed in a plenary session. The main goal of this event is sharing knowledge on this theme. The seminar ends with a networking event in the hotel bar.


Companies that already have agreed their active participation are Hosokawa Micron, ISMA, Buro Blauw, Orffa, Delft University of Technology, Lampe Group, and Delft Solids Solutions.


More information on our activities devoted to dustiness measurements can be found on these pages for micrometer based dustiness investigations and nano-particle oriented dust measurements.
