The Congress is structured as follows

  • CHISA 2016 – General topics of chemical and process engineering
  • CHISA 2016 – Specialised symposia
  • PRES 2016 – 19th Conference on process integration, modelling and optimisation for energy saving and pollution reduction
  • Exhibition MARCHES 2016

Formulation engineering – the chemical engineering of products


The chemical engineering of products, increasingly known as Formulation Engineering, concerns the design and manufacture of microstructured products which are often sold directly to the consumer and often designed to break down in use. Examples include foods, “instant” drinks, pharmaceutical dosage forms such as tablets, personal and household cleaning products, paints and inks – an increasingly long list. Product formulation and its subsequent processing is designed to form a specified microstructure. In use (eating, taking the dose, painting the wall, etc.) the product microstructure breaks down in a useful way, releasing flavour or active ingredients or forming a gloss layer or whatever. In manufacture, cost-efficiency and product quality are of supreme importance. In use, perception of product quality will depend on the effective breakdown or evolution of microstructure. This talk will discuss some examples and developments in teaching and research in Formulation Engineering.

Chemical and Process Engineering - Forging a Path with Help from Stephen Sondheim


In the United States, over the last thirty years, there has been a shift in industrial focus from process to product development.  Over essentially the same time frame, there has been an expansion of the chemical engineering discipline to encompass areas outside the scope and the scale of the traditional CPI.  These shifts in focus, combined with years of restructuring and the coincident retirement of the baby boomer population, has produced the “perfect storm” in reducing the pool of expert process practitioners.

The need to pay more attention to process engineering fundamentals is being recognized and addressed on a number of fronts.  Process engineering forms the basis for ensuring a safe, secure, and economical supply of air, water, energy, food, as well as a myriad of discretionary consumer products.

The Pareto principle is valid for process development.  While ever-increasingly more precise analytic tools are available, we can acquire ~ 80% of the process picture by applying chemical engineering basics:  mass balance, the three laws of thermodynamics, rate laws, and economics.  My talk will demonstrate the value of applying the fundamentals to frame specific “grand challenge” problems, with a goal of providing tools and guidance to newer process practitioners and speeding their own development and success.

But what does Stephen Sondheim have to do with it?

Design and operations of sustainable supply chains – recent advances in life cycle optimization methods (PRES 2016 Plenary Lecture)



As evidenced by the pope's recent encyclical on climate change and the public’s interests in carbon and water footprints, sustainability issues are becoming more prevalent in the thoughts and actions of more and more people around the world. The increasing awareness of sustainability issues has driven the industry and society to pursue more economically, environmentally and socially sustainable strategies in the design and operations of supply chains. Systematic methods based on computational optimization frameworks using a life cycle perspectives play an important role in this quest. These computational frameworks integrate life cycle analysis and technoeconomic assessment with multiobjective superstructure optimization to improve overall sustainability performance of the supply chains. This talk will explore some recent results on the development of large-scale mathematical programming models and algorithms for life cycle optimization of sustainable supply chains. We will specifically focus on two computational frameworks and their applications. The first one is concerned with the functional unit-based life cycle optimization of sustainable supply chains under economic and environmental criterions. The second one is a multi-scale life cycle framework that accounts for and optimizes the direct and indirect environmental impacts from the foreground process systems scale and from the background economy scale through the integration of process systems optimization with process-based and input-output-based models. The last framework addresses the life cycle optimization in a decentralized, non-cooperative supply chains under a leader-follower game structure. We will discuss general modelling frameworks, efficient solution algorithms, and case studies on hydrocarbon biofuel and shale gas supply chains.

Remote control of reaction-diffusion processes with chemical robots


The ability to control the rates of chemical or biochemical reactions at length-scales comparable to those of single-cell organisms or their sub-cellular compartments would be desirable in a number of situations, ranging from fundamental studies of transfer phenomena to applications such as controlled delivery of actives from functional materials in the pharmaceutical, food, personal care or crop protection products. Established strategies for the control of chemical reactions known from the macroscopic world, such as control of temperature, the addition rate of reactants, or the availability of a catalyst have been applied to autonomous micro-scale systems called “chemical robots”. A chemical robot is an internally structured microparticle consisting of a semi-permeable membrane that regulates molecular transport between the interior and the surroundings, a system of stimuli-responsive internal compartments that store and release reactants, immobilised enzymes or catalysts for facilitating chemical reactions, and magnetic nanoparticles that act as susceptors and enable the receiving of remotely sent radiofrequency signals.

MARCHES 2016 – the MARket of CHemical Engineering and Services will take place in the premises of the CHISA 2016. Standard exhibition booths of 6 m2 floor area will be available for business negotiations and demonstration purposes. A Catalogue of Exhibitors will be distributed to all Congress participants. An expression of interest in the Exhibition should be sent to upon which more detailed information will be provided.



This Overview might be still very slightly modified.


The plenary lectures will be delivered at 8:30–10:30 h. on Sunday and Monday. The parallel lecture sessions will take place at 11:00–12:40 h. (on Sunday and Monday) or at 8:30–12:40 h. (on Tuesday and Wednesday) and on every day at 14:00–18:00 h., based on 20 minutes rigid schedules. For keynote lectures 40 minutes are usually reserved. Poster sessions will take place the whole day from 9 to 17 h. However, authors must attend their posters during the coffee breaks: 10:30–11:00 h., and 15:20–16:20 h.
