Challenges & Opportunities in Particle Characterization & Processing

The development of particle processing technology is closely related to the new economy, which made use of more hightech products towards the beginning of the 21st century. Applying ultrafine powders and nanoparticles to create new materials has caught the imaginations of researchers around the world. Although particle processing technology has gained significant progress in recent years, learning to use the processing technologies via particle characterization to achieve new product functionalities while meeting with the environmental and safety requirements is still challenging, but full of opportunities.
 
The Hosokawa Powder Technology Symposium deals with these technologies, future trends and offers
academic/industrial presentations by well-known experts with the opportunity to get acquainted with other particle/powder processing professionals. The Symposium will be hosted at the Hosokawa Micron Powder Systems in Summit, New Jersey on October 4, 2017 from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM.
 
Symposium Agenda
  • Leveraging Particle and Nano Bio Technologies for Product and Process Innovations
  • Dr. Brij M. Moudgil - Center for Particulate and Surfactant Systems (CPaSS), University of Florida
  • Size Reduction Technologies for Efficient Powder Processing Systems
  • Mr. Bill Brown – Hosokawa Micron Powder Systems
  • Laboratory & Process Equipment Exhibition Hosokawa Micron Powder System
  • Particle Shape Analysis – Sometimes It’s Very Important Dr. Raymond S. Farinato - Solvay Technology Solutions
  • Particle Technology for Dry Powder Inhalers Dr. Anthony J. Hickey - RTI International, Research Triangle Park
 
The Symposium was originally started by the Hosokawa Micron Corporation in 1968 to promote powder science and technology, which was closely related to the processing of numerous kinds of materials, from daily commodities to advanced functional materials.
 
The first International Hosokawa Powder Technology Symposium was held in Germany in 2014 as part of a special event for the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the Hosokawa Powder Technology Foundation. We are excited to announce that the second symposium will be held in New Jersey this year. For the Symposium, specialists in the area are invited as lecturers from both the academic and industrial fields. Various topics concerning powder science and technology will be discussed during the lectures.
 
Check-in opens at 9:00 AM with a light breakfast and presentations start at 10:00 AM. Lunch will be included and the presentations conclude at 3:00 PM. Although the event is free to attend, registration is required. Register early – only 150 tickets are available.
