Petrochem industry embraces Rotterdam event

The PEFTEC 2019 exhibition is now sold out, and the organisers have reported visitor registrations significantly higher than in the run up to the previous event in 2017. This year’s event will take place on 22nd and 23rd May at the Rotterdam Ahoy exhibition centre in the Netherlands.

A free-to-attend seminar programme and details of poster presentations have just been published on the website which also features a comprehensive programme of conference presentations. Exhibition manager David Hellyer says: “Entry to the exhibition is free of charge to pre-registered visitors, so in combination with the free seminars, PEFTEC 2019 represents a great opportunity to gather the latest information on methods, standards, regulations and technologies on the testing, analysis and monitoring of gas, downstream oil products, chemicals and petrochemicals.

The seminars include case studies and offer detailed practical advice with a focus on technologies and best practice,”he adds.

PEFTEC 2019 is a specialist event focusing on the testing, analysis and monitoring of gas, downstream oil products, chemicals and petrochemicals. With a comprehensive programme of conferences, seminars and an international exhibition, it will provide the latest guidance on regulations, methods, standards and technologies for analytical chemists, process scientists, researchers, academics, process operators, regulators, consultants, laboratory personnel and environmental managers.

PEFTEC 2019 has been expanded to include a full Process Analysis Conference, as well as the hugely popular Analytical Conference, and the technical Seminars.

The PEFTEC Analytical Conference will address the latest analytical techniques with a plenary on the first day by one of the fathers of Petroleomics and Director of the Future Fuels Institute at Florida State University, Ryan P. Rodgers. The plenary on the second day by Eric Little, the Chief Data Officer of Osthus, will address the hot topic of ‘Big Data and Big Analysis”.

The PEFTEC Process Monitoring Conference will include a plenary lecture on the latest developments in process monitoring by Alison Nordon from the Centre for Process Analysis and Control Technology (CPACT). This will be followed by sessions featuring a wide variety of the latest monitoring techniques.The new larger PEFTEC Exhibition will provide access to innovation from over 250 world-leading companies, many of which will be providing technical seminars during the event “ see for details.

The exhibition will offer a fantastic opportunity to not just see the latest technologies, but to discuss them with experts and meet with potential suppliers. This is vitally important because face to face meetings provide an opportunity to build trust, and people that visit exhibitions often remark that they found something they didn’t know they were looking for. Many of the exhibitors will unveil new technologies at the event.

The Industrial Methane Measurement (IMM) Conference will run alongside the PEFTEC event, with delegates from both events sharing the ability to peruse the PEFTEC exhibition.

Methane is an important Greenhouse Gas (GHG), absorbing significantly more energy than carbon dioxide for example, so it performs a major role in global warming.Furthermore, atmospheric methane concentrations rose during the decade from 2006 to 2016, so there is major concern about the sources of this increase and also with the monitoring methods. The methane measurement conference was therefore created to provide an opportunity for experts from around the world to share their experiences in the detection, monitoring and mitigation/prevention of methane emissions.
