What to expect at the Particle Technology Summit

Dear guests,

Small or very small particles are essential components of many functional foods and pharmaceutical excipients. Powder particles can be structured in such a way that they combine several functions or properties. Product design and characterisation are part of particle technology. Processes such as spray granulation, agglomeration or microencapsulation are used for product design. 

Learn the essentials about the basics and applications of particle technology, paired with practical examples and a tour of our SternMaid plant in Wittenburg. 

In cooperation with Sefa Koseoglu, we have put together an exciting and varied programme that leaves nothing to be desired.  

Take the chance to be there live and exchange ideas with the Who's Who of the industry.
