In addition to an exhibition and series of free-to-attend seminars, PEFTEC 2019, The 3rd International Conference & Exhibition on Downstream, Petroleum, Refining and Environmental Technologies, taking place at the Ahoy Exhibition Centre in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, has announced that its Conference offer has been expanded yet again to include a dedicated Process Analysis Conference and "Big Data - Big Analysis" sessions, to compliment the popular Analytical Conference.


The conferences at PEFTEC 2019 are titled –

From Crude to Customer - Developments in Analysis for the Petro Industry Supply Chain which will feature a keynote lecture by Ryan P. Rodgers who is one of the godfathers of Petroleomics and Director of the Future Fuels Institute at Florida State University.


Lasers, Light, Sensors and Separation - Tools and Techniques for Process Based Analysis which includes a keynote from Alison Nordon from the Centre for Process Analysis and Control Technology (CPACT) which will be followed by sessions on process gas analysis using online techniques such as GC, Optical Feedback Cavity Enhanced Absorption Spectroscopy, VUV Spectroscopy and Open Path FTIR.

Who should attend?

If you are involved in the generation, provision, application and use of analytical data and instrumentation in the petroleum processing, refining and petrochemical space then the conferences and exhibition will have plenty to interest you. On the laboratory front the two day conference "From Crude to Customer - Developments in Analysis for the Petro Industry Supply Chain" covers a wide range of current research and application topics from the feed crude through to final products. The on-line and in-field process analysis conference "Lasers, Light, Sensors and Separation - Tools and Techniques for Process Based Analysis" will run in parallel over the 2 days covering the latest developments in process-based spectroscopy, chromatography, sensors and advanced data processing and analytics.

In addition, both conferences will feature special sessions on the hot topic of big data and big analysis which will consider strategies, tools and techniques to maximise the value derived from the vast quantities of analytical and process data now routinely available to the industry.

The conferences programmes have been designed to be complementary and delegates will be free to move between the two to mix and match topics of specific interest to them.
