Call for Paper

7th Asian Conference on Innovative Energy & Environmental Chemical Engineering

8-11 November, 2020
Skybay Gyeongpo Hotel, Gangneung, Republic of Korea
Welcome to ASCON
The 7th Asian Conference on Innovative Energy and Environmental Chemical Engineering (ASCON-IEEChE 2020) is the seventeenth in a series of Asian Conference on Fluidized-bed and Three-phase Reactor, first held at Tokyo in 1988. In 2020, the 6th ASCON-IEEChE will be held in Gangneung, Republic of Korea. In continuation of the previous ASCON, we welcome every chemical engineer and scientist who is working in or interested in not only the science and engineering of fluidized-bed and multi-phase reactors but also a wide area of the energy and environmental issues.

Conference Topic

1. Science and Engineering of Fluidized-Bed and Multi-Phase Reactor
hydrodynamics, solid behavior, heat and mass transfer, bubble column reactor, gas-liquid-solid three-phase reactor, gas-solid reactor, micro-reactor, multi-phase chemical reactions, biological and biochemical reactions, modeling and simulation, reactor design and scale-up, demonstration plants/processes, process safety and control, etc.
2. Energy & Environmental Chemical
combustion, gasification, reforming, pyrolysis, upgrading, drying, hydrogen, biomass, biomass-derived liquid fuels, coal, wastes, heat recovery/storage, heat pump, energy materials, catalysts, fuel cell, exergy analysis, energy saving, emission control, environmental protection, etc.
If you are not sure whether your topic is relevant to the scope of this conference,
please send your inquiry to the Conference Executive Secretary (Prof. Dong Hyun Lee, Thank you very much.

Technical Sessions

  • Fluid Dynamics in Fluidized Beds and Multi-Phase Reactors
  • Energy Conversion
