Second International
Workshop on Granulation

22 - 25 June 2004
The University of Sheffield

The Second International Workshop on Granulation was a big success, attracting 140 international delegates from both industrial and academic backgrounds.  Photographs from the workshop are now available online, and papers from the meeting presentations will be considered for inclusion in a future special issue of Chemical Engineering Science



This workshop will be organised by the Department of Chemical and Process Engineering at the University of Sheffield, on behalf of the IChemE Particle Technology Subject Group and the EFCE Working Party on Agglomeration.  The workshop will consist of:

  • a 2-day course (22-23 June)

  • a 2-day meeting (24-25 June)

Throughout the process industries, two recurring themes are:

  • how can I formulate a new or better product?

  • how can I use knowledge at one length scale to understand the behaviour at another?

This workshop will address these two issues in one of the fastest moving areas of process science - granulation. This technique of taking small particles and arranging them together opens up many formulation possibilities for the chemicals, food and pharmaceutical industries.

The 2-day course on granulation (22-23 June) is suitable for PhD students and will also be of benefit to those involved in research in an industrial context.  It is organised by Dr. David York (P&G) and Prof. Jonathan Seville (University of Birmingham). The 2-day meeting (24-25 June) consists of presentations from leading international speakers from industry and academia who will give examples of how formulation and science can be combined. 

Papers are organised to reflect both granulation as a process and granules as products. In this way researchers, formulators and operators can all expect to find information of relevance to their interests.

Papers presented at the meeting will be considered for publication in a special issue of Chemical Engineering Science. This issue is available to delegates at a nominal fee of 35 and can be ordered on the registration form. Abstracts for the presentations are available by clicking here

Any company or organisation interested in sponsoring or exhibiting at the meeting please contact the organiser.
