Group meetings of the Powder and Paste Processing Group are held weekly during term time, usually on Thursdays at 1pm in the Board Room, Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology. The presentations are informal and usually last for 30 minutes to an hour. They can be a comment on a recent paper, results achieved in experimental work, a general introduction to a theoretical aspect of paste or powder processing, or a presentation from someone outside the group. If you are interested in attending or contributing to a meeting, please contact the group secretary, Amy Chesterton.
The Materials Cluster is a joint meeting of the Paste Group and the Polymer Fluids and Structured Materials Groups, usually held on Fridays at 1pm in lecture theatre 2.
Members of the P3G group regularly contribute to local, national and international meetings. In particular, they regularly attend the International Congress of Engineering and Food (iCEF) and the Heat Exchanger Fouling and Cleaning (HEXF&C) series, as well as hosting the Fouling and Cleaning in Food Processing (FCFP) conference.
- June 2011 saw members of the P3G group present their work at a number of international meetings. Patrick Gordon, Jen-Yi Huang and Amy Chesterton presented their work at the International Congress on Engineering and Food (iCEF 2011) in Athens, Greece; Dr Ian Wilson, Dr Edward Ishiyama and Vincent Lister gave a number of presentations at the Heat Exchanger Fouling and Cleaning (HEXF&C 2011) conference in Crete, Greece; while Min Zhang presented her most recent work at the 5th International Granulation Workshop in Lausanne, Switzerland.
- Dr. Ian Wilson gave a keynote lecture entitled 'Paste engineering:Multi-phase materials & multi-phase flows' at the 60th Conference of the Canadian Society of Chemical Engineering in Saskatoon in October 2010.
