On November 28, 2017, the Dutch Working Party on Drying (NWGD) organizes the annual NWGD symposium about drying technology. During the symposium, speakers from companies, knowledge institutes and academia will present latest developments & innovations in the area of industrial drying, share challenges encountered in practice and strategies to optimize drying operations.
Delft Solids Solutions will also contribute to the symposium program by means of a lecture focusing on the physical properties of particles and the impact thereof on drying processes.
More information on the symposium can be found on the Process Innovation website.
