This workshop is dedicated to the subject of twin screw extrusion in combination with powder technology.

The State of the art will be captured via following main themes:

Session 1 : Process design including issues such as: Transition of powders into suspensions in extrusion | Inactivation of micro-organisms in powders by steam, cold plasma or during extrusion of low moisture food | Extrusion-porosified high protein powders | Cleaning and cleaning validation in powder
handling | Finite element simulation of extrusion process

Session 2 : Process equipment including issues such as: Pneumatic powder transport, blending and filling in closed process equipment | Twin screw feeders for dosage of powders | Shaping and spheronization of extrudates

Session 3 : Characterization of powdered raw materials and products including issues such as: Interaction of water
vapour and porous particles | Characterization of flow behaviour of powders as well as melt behaviour and
flow of powder melt | Characterization of mechanical properties of micro- and nano-particles

Session 4 : Demonstration session on all subjects of session 1 to 3
