Downstream Processing: Unit Operations in the Chemical and Biochemical Industry (Now as online course)Add to calendar
A three-day course in Downstream Processing – Unit Operations in the Chemical and Biochemical Industry – with presentations by Grundfos and AlfaLaval
Online course in CET time zone
Industrial training addressing technicians as well as process engineers working in the chemical, pharmaceutical, biotech and/or food industry
Target group & outcome
Through presentations, exercises and plenum discussions participants will acquire solid knowledge of downstream processing and the numerous associated unit operations with focus on the design principles, operations and equipment setup. Participants will further be introduced to simple calculations and estimations of benefit in the daily work.
The course runs for three consecutive days with alternating presentations, exercises and plenum discussions. The course is held in English.
