CPAC Rome Meeting 2023

March 20-22, 2023

University of Washington Rome Center

Rome, Italy

Utilization of New Processing Concepts to Support the Demand for Sustainable
Materials in a Circular Economy, as well as Exploring New Reaction Routes for
Continuous Flow Processing Aided by Real-Time Monitoring Technology

Overview and Workshop Theme: A key enabler of the move to a Circular Economy will be process intensification which offers much more efficient processing for sustainable production.

The 2023 Rome meeting will build on this theme (which was very successful in 2022) and there will be an emphasis on exploring new reaction routes that benefit from the growing use of continuous flow technology and effective process monitoring concepts. Of special note, there will be a section of the meeting dedicated to advances in technologies which are of value to the formation of a biorefinery.
CPAC has an established track record in fostering academic and industrial interactions.
