Workshop: Energy Supply for Intensified Processes


Allgemeine Information

Datum: 25. – 25.06.2014
Ort: (A) Gleisdorf, Steiermark
Adresse: forumKloster, Hall Katharina, (A) Gleisdorf

25th of June, 2014 in Gleisdorf Austria
09.30-18:00, forumKloster, Hall Katharina (first floor)

The EFCE Working Party on Process Intensification ( and the IEA Task 49/IV ( cordially invite you to a common workshop to exchange views on the effect of intensifed processes on industrial energy supply. The workshop will be organised in the framework of “Gleisdorf Solar 2014”, an international conference on solar heating and cooling.

Please follow this link to register for the workshop:
(Registration can be done for the workshop only, or for a 2 or 3 day pass for “Gleisdorf Solar” including 1 or 2 days conference plus workshop).

The workshop aims at bringing together experts working in process intensification to exchange views and respective studies on the questions:

-Will intensifed processes change the landscape of industrial energy requirements?
-To which extent can these changes be expected within the near (2020) and longer-term
future (2050)?
-Which effect on renewable energy integration can be expected?
