The conference is inviting practitioners & researchers working in all areas of process engineering and related disciplines for the Petrochemical, Chemical, Refining or LNG industries to submit abstracts for consideration before April 4th, 2020.
The track will bring together 200+ leading process engineering & technology professionals from across the Petrochemical, Chemical and Refining industries to present and share the very latest in innovation and research at the 10,000+ strong Downstream 2020 conference.
The four major trends practitioners & researchers are invited to submit papers on:
- Intensification: Dramatically improve processing capacity and efficiency through the latest technologies the industry has to offer
- Integration: Ensure the economic viability of your plant and capture all the value of your processes
- Information: Maximize production and profitability of established and future assets through data-driven optimization of operations and process safety
- Sustainability: Hear the latest innovations in environmental engineering and sustainable development to guarantee carbon capture readiness
Over two days, the track will feature the likes of ExxonMobil, Dow Chemicals, Eastman and many more already confirmed to speak on the process engineering & technology track at Downstream 2020 conference.
“Since 2010, petrochemical producers have announced significant expansions of capacity in the U.S., and the momentum is not over,” said Downstream 2020 global project director Bridget Robinson.
“To date, 334 chemical and plastics projects cumulatively valued at $204 billion have been announced, with 53% of the investment completed or underway and 40% in the planning phase. Downstream 2020 represents a unique opportunity to tap into this vibrant and growing market.”
Petrochemical Update is now part of Reuters Events, after its parent company FC Business Intelligence was acquired as part of the Reuters news and media division of Thomson Reuters in October 2019.
