About Fluidization XVI

The Fluidization XVI conference aims to bridge fundamental research on fluidization and emerging applications of fluidization and novel fluidization technologies. As the 16th iteration of this conference, it will bring together world renowned experts in the field.

Fluidization is an important field of both fundamental research and broad industrial applications. Current understanding of the complex fluid-particle multiphase flow patterns, coupled with heat and mass transfer and chemical reactions, is still incomplete.

With a long established tradition, this series of conferences has been held all over the world tackling challenges and successes with the design and operation of fluidized beds and similar fluid-particle systems. This newest session will continue to play this role and stimulate the interplay between the academic, engineering and industrial communities to address the challenges for the future of fluidization technology.
