PEFTEC 2017 Announces Programme of Conferences 

Jul 21 2017

The organisers of PEFTEC 2017 (Antwerp, 29-30th November) have published the Conference themes for this year’s event and announced that registration is now open via www.peftec.com.

PEFTEC is a specialist event focused on the testing, analysis and monitoring of downstream petrochemical and chemical processes and refineries. Created to provide the latest guidance on regulations, methods and technologies for analytical chemists, scientists, process operators, laboratory personnel and environmental managers, PEFTEC 2017 builds on the success of the inaugural event that took place in 2015.

Located at the Antwerp Expo in Belgium, PEFTEC 2017 will be situated at the centre of one the world’s largest clusters of petrochemical companies, and will include Conferences focusing on analytical techniques, environmental monitoring, methane measurement and safety issues in hazardous situations.

The event will provide the petrochemical industry with an opportunity to discover the latest information on testing and monitoring, in the laboratory, in the field and on- site. A major international exhibition will feature over 150 of the world’s leading providers of analytical testing and monitoring equipment and services, and technical conferences will address the topics of greatest interest to industry practitioners.

PEFTEC Environmental Monitoring Conference (Wednesday 29th November) Prof Alastair Lewis from the University of York (UK) will introduce this one day conference focusing on the management of gaseous and particulate emissions to the atmosphere - a vital component of environmental sustainability in the petrochemical and refining industries. The presentations will examine the latest theoretical, observational and modeling approaches that are available for quantifying both greenhouse gases such as methane and CO2 and short-lived air pollutants including NOx, mercury and hydrocarbons. The presentations will cover the latest techniques that can be used to better quantify emissions from existing industrial activities and that provide insight into the future impacts of new industry practices and regulations.

A programme of international speakers from the UK, Spain, Netherlands, Germany and Austria has been assembled from academic and industry sectors. The speakers will cover issues ranging from measurement science, emissions quantification, regulation and future environmental priorities for the industry. Abstracts for all of the presentations are available from www.PEFTEC.com.

Industrial Methane (2 day) and Hazardex (1 day) Conferences
Two further Conferences will run alongside the PEFTEC event, enabling all conference visitors to optimise their time in Antwerp by visiting the PEFTEC exhibition. The Industrial Methane Measurement Conference will focus on industry requirements in an increasingly regulated post-Paris Agreement world. Leading experts will discuss the latest field studies, policy developments, methods and technologies for monitoring fugitive methane emissions including leak detection, identification and quantification, as well as long term monitoring.

The Hazardex Conference continues a decade long series of events providing safety-related intelligence to process plant and hazardous area specialists. This event was created for engineers, safety managers, directors with corporate liability and other members of the hazardous area community from all the process and high hazard industries, including oil & gas, petrochemicals, fine chemicals, pharmaceuticals, mining, manufacturing and the food & beverage sector, amongst others.

PEFTEC Exhibition

Many of the 150+ exhibitors will use the event to launch a new product or unveil their latest technology. With so much to see at the Exhibition, PEFTEC organiser Marcus Pattison is urging delegates and visitors to plan their time carefully and allocate plenty of time to learn about the latest innovations on show at the exhibition.

The cost of admission to the PEFTEC Conferences is €125/day, but entry to the Exhibition (from any of the conferences) is free of charge for those that pre-register at www.PEFTEC.com.
