I had the opportunity to attend this conference yesterday at the Sugar Land Marriott Town Square.  This is not a large event, but they had some interesting things going on there.  In terms of quality, the exhibitors and the attendees were pretty good, far above average.

  • Tuesday Keynote by former Shell Oil president John Hofmeister
  • Student poster session
  • Tuesday Happy Hour

  • Catalysis & Reaction Engineering
  • IIoT/Big Data


  • Process Intensification
