The European Federation of Chemical Engineering (EFCE) promotes a series of biannual events, known as ECCE (European Congress Of Chemical Engineering). This year´s meeting was held at Fortezza da Basso, Florence, Italy, from September 15 to 19. Combined, the 5th European Congress of Applied Biotechnology (ECAB) took place.

The Scientific Program brought up innovative solutions to respond to major societal challenges. Plenary, keynote, invited and contributed lectures brought the visitors up to date in all topical areas of modern chemical and biochemical engineering to address solutions to global challenges.

At ECCE 2019, INOSIM presented a lecture. Our project manager Dominik Wolff reported on the latest results from our participation in the EU-funded LEGOLAS project. He introduced the expert audience to the project´s targets and the concept of modular production logistics: Increasingly volatile markets and short product cycles require flexible and reconfigurable logistic systems. By a case study from project partner Imperial Logistics, it was demonstrated how the newly developed packaged goods recipe modules are applied to simulate complex logistical networks with INOSIM software. The alternatives generated by the LEGOLAS Assistence System (LAS tool) can be evaluated through simulation with INOSIM by means of quantitative KPIs (Key Performance Indicators). The transparency thus generated lightens the planning of flexible, modular logistics systems. After the lecture, Dominik Wolff experienced high interest not only in the LEGOLAS project, but also in INOSIM process simulation in general.

More information on the event is available on the ECCE 2019 homepage.
