Fifth World Congress on Particle Technology

portrait of milanMilan Patel has won one of three £500 IChemE Particle Technology Subject Group prizes which enabled him to attend the Fifth World Congress of Particle Technology in the USA.

Milan Patel is a third year PhD student in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Cambridge, supervised by Dr Ian Wilson at Cambridge and Prof Stuart Blackburn at Birmingham. His project is entitled Development of a paste formulation criterion and is funded by the EPSRC PowdermatriX Faraday Partnership. The competition for the IChemE Particle Technology Subject Group Student Travel Bursary takes the form of a 3000 word essay.

The Fifth World Congress of Particle Technology took place in Orlando, Florida on 23-27 April, 2006. Every four years, members of the global particle technology community converge to share their latest insights and applications to industrial, academic, and civil problems. Different continents host the event each time and this year over 600 papers were presented in about 100 sessions over the four days.

Milan exhibited a poster and gave an oral presentation of his paper, Simulation of liquid phase maldistribution during the extrusion of highly filled particulate pastes. Other members of the department who attended the conference were Professor Lynn Gladden, Dr Andy Sederman, Christoph Müller and Dr Mick Mantle.
