Consortium Meeting 2012

The tenth common meeting of the UNIFAC Consortium and the DDBST User Meeting took place on Tuesday 18th September 2012 and Wednesday 19th September 2012 at TGO (Technologie- und Gründerzentrum Oldenburg) and at DDBST, respectively.

In the long tradition of consortium, the meeting 2012 brought together once more the company representatives from all over the world.

The recent efforts in the field of group contribution methods were presented in short lectures. The company representatives had the opportunity not only to gain an overview of the state of UNIFAC, mod. UNIFAC,  equations of state PSRK and VTPR, but also to suggest possible future developments and to present their industrial research.

In the evening all participants were invited to join the laboratory tour, followed by the dinner.

Many thanks to all the participants for creating a nice atmosphere full of constructive discussions during the oral sessions!

30 people from 27 companies have taken part in the meeting.
