Head of CAPEC, Professor Rafiqul Gani gave the opening plenary lecture for the conference on Monday 25th. His presentation was entitled ‘A new Paradigm for Chemical Engineering’. The lecture reviewed the current status of chemical engineering as a discipline, the proposals for the third paradigm and discussed if the time for such a paradigm shift has arrived?
The attending students had oral (Deenesh and Alessandra) and poster (Elena) presentations. Deenesh gave an oral presentation based on his PhD thesis entitled ‘Achieving Process Intensification from the Application of a Phenomenon Based Synthesis, Design and Intensification Methodology’, Alessandra gave an oral presentation based on her master thesis entitled ‘Synthesis of Industrial Water Networks’ and Elena gave a poster presentation on her master thesis entitled ‘Separation of Azeotropic Mixtures’.
