9th International Granulation Workshop


The 8th International Granulation Workshop 2017 was even more of a success than the previous years with a record attendance due to the growth of the workshop. Over 400 people from Industry and Academia attended the Workshop organised by Sheffield University. Next year the 9th International Granulation Conference will be hosted by Nestle in Lausanne, Switzerland. This will be the place to showcase the latest in agglomeration, granulation and particle technology. The granulation conference will provide an excellent opportunity to gain a complete overview of how the field of granulation stands at present with the presentation of a range of papers from both academia and industry.
