Part of the ‘Minimising waste in chemical formulation’ FEATURE SESSION/PANEL Q&A (Hosted by GAMBICA)

Measure to manage


Steve FreemanSales Manager UK & Ireland - Anton Paar Ltd

Time & Location

Thursday: 14.30 to 15.30, Stage 4

About this presentation:

Avoiding waste and optimising energy consumption requires continuous availability of data on concentration, raw density, sound velocity, or refractive index in the process line. The quickest way to save valuable resources during the production of chemical liquids is to install and use appropriate sensors which can deliver simple measurement of complex applications. But which types of sensors are best, and which are easiest for plant managers to use? Steve will draw on existing applications working with aggressive chemicals.

About this session

In this session, expert members of GAMBICA, the trade association for lab equipment, test and measurement suppliers, will offer step by step advice on how to drive waste minimisation in key areas that matter to the chemical industry; avoiding incomplete chemistry, minimising use of energy and raw materials and reducing end of pipe waste and re-work. Drawing on expertise from extensive collaborations with leading chemists and organisations, the speakers will explain how they are responding to the chemical industry’s drive to transform research and development by focusing on improving quality, minimising waste and reducing cost. They will each present on particular aspects of waste minimisation for 10 minutes then will open up to a debate on the barriers to waste minimisation and how they can be overcome and on what is coming down the line in terms of technical developments and customer requirements.

Host  – Jacqueline Balian– Head of Laboratories Sector, GAMBICA
