PIN-NL’s mission is to transfer knowledge about process intensification to target groups in Dutch chemical, food and pharma companies, as well as knowledge institutes and schools.

You have just entered the public part of our website.

Here we inform you as much as we can about:

· Upcoming meetings of the Association (Spring, Summer, Autumn Sessions)

which are open for non-members for a reasonable fee

· Related international events (PIN-UK, Dechema activities related to PI, etc.)

The potential of intensifying existing chemical, food or pharma plants yielding processes with significantly higher feedstock and energy efficiency
