16th European Symposium on Comminution & Classification

The next European Symposium on Comminution & Classification (ESCC) will take place from 2 to 4 September 2019 at the University of Leeds/UK. Professor Mojtaba Ghadiri FREng, CEng, FIChemE, Conference Chair, School of Chemical and Process Engineering, University of Leeds/UK and his team have great pleasure in organising the event on behalf of the Working Party of the European Federation of Chemical Engineering (EFCE). ESCC has a long international history, and the last three conferences were held at Braunschweig, Gothenburg, and Izmir.


Professor Mojtaba Ghadiri: “As a long-standing member of the Working Party, representing the Institution of Chemical Engineers of UK, we are delighted to organise this important international conference and welcome the worldwide community to Leeds. Milling is one of the oldest technologies developed by early civilisations, yet so little is known on what happens to the particles when they break. I look forward to the contributions which will enlighten the participants of the latest developments in the field.”


The conference structure is in line with the format of the previous events and will cover themes on foods, pharmaceuticals, mineral processing, fine and ultrafine grinding in the chemical and allied industries, fundamentals of breakage and comminution models as well as new applications. There will be plenary and keynote lectures from leading comminution and classification experts from all over the world, poster sessions and exhibitions by instrument manufacturers. ESCC is a focussed forum in which participants have the opportunity to discuss current trends in this area and learn from other industries and can transfer knowledge to your own applications.


All interested are cordially invited to come to Leeds in 2019 to be part of the ESCC, which will bring together experts of comminution and classification technology from industry and academia worldwide.


The organising committee invites all interested to this international forum and solicits abstracts of work to be presented at the conference.
