ECCE10 (10th European Congress of Chemical Engineering) part of the well known ECCE series that is held under the auspices of the European Federation of Chemical Engineering (EFCE) is an important milestone every two years for all scientists and chemical engineers. We would like to see this congress becomes the most important scientific meeting in Europe for chemical and biochemical engineers.

ECCE10 will play a leading role in defining the status for chemical and biochemical engineering in terms of where we are and where we want to go. It will outline the important things that chemical and biochemical engineers should be addressing and how they interact with other disciplines.
Following ECCE8 in Berlin (Germany, 2011) and ECCE9 in The Hague (The Netherlands, 2013), ECCE10 will continue the tradition of scientific excellence with international attendance and fruitful professional exchanges. The organization of this event is based on the model of the AIChE meetings and all EFCE Working parties and sections have been involved in order to propose an attractive program through symposia, workshops, sessions and exhibitions.
