The Dutch Working Party on Drying (NWGD) invites you to the annual NWGD symposium about drying technology. During the symposium, speakers from companies, knowledge institutes and academia will present latest developments & innovations in the area of industrial drying, share challenges encountered in practice and strategies to optimise drying operations. This years’ theme is ‘Numbers tell the tale’ or ‘Meten is Weten’ in Dutch. We invited three speakers who will introduce and review innovative measurement techniques to monitor product moisture and air moisture contents. Other presentations will cover various topics, for example on sludge dewatering and drying, new heat exchanger technology for optimal drying, atmospheric freeze drying and frying processes. Highlights of NWGD 2015 will be presented including amongst others the launch of the new NWGD website, review of all excursions, and factsheets that have been made. In the afternoon also a parallel track will be organised by the expert group lead by Bruno Mulder on surface drying to launch ideas for new innovation projects.
