PEFTEC is a specialist event focused on the testing, analysis and monitoring of downstream petrochemical and chemical processes and refineries. Created to provide the latest guidance on regulations, methods and technologies for analytical chemists, scientists, process operators, laboratory personnel and environmental managers, PEFTEC 2017 builds on the success of the inaugural event that took place in 2015. Located at the Antwerp Expo in Belgium, PEFTEC 2017 will be situated at the center of one the world's largest clusters of petrochemical companies, and will include Conferences focusing on analytical techniques, environmental monitoring, methane measurement and safety issues in hazardous situations. The event will provide the petrochemical industry with an opportunity to discover the latest information on testing and monitoring, in the laboratory, in the field and on-site. A major international exhibition will feature over 150 of the world's leading providers of analytical testing and monitoring equipment and services, and technical conferences will address the topics of greatest interest to industry practitioners. Prof Alastair Lewis from the University of York (UK) will introduce this one day conference focusing on the management of gaseous and particulate emissions to the atmosphere - a vital component of environmental sustainability in the petrochemical and refining industries. The presentations will examine the latest theoretical, observational and modeling approaches that are available for quantifying both greenhouse gases such as methane and CO2 and short-lived air pollutants including NOx, mercury and hydrocarbons.
