Japie- Octave Symposium 2018

Meeting our present needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs is called sustainability (Brundtland Commision 1987). All the innovations and developments have to blend well with the sustainability.

Chemical Industry is vital to provide the day to day life essentials. Meanwhile, this sector is one of the biggest consumers of energy and material.

As a knowledge institute in the Brainport area, Eindhoven University of Technology and the Faculty of Chemical Engineering and Chemistry are aware of their responsibility to fortify the sustainable developments on large scale.

Therefore, the study association Japie and Octave- an association of PDEng trainees in Process & Product Design, are proud to choose Sustainability in Chemical Industry as the key topic for their prestigious Japie- Octave Symposium 2018.

The purpose of the symposium is to share the ideas and actions from industry and academia to the younger engineers. So they will be inspired and prepared for the future to take up sustainability challenges.
