From September 26th to 29th, the 17th National Drying Conference, which was co-sponsored by the Drying Professional Group of CIESC and China General Machinery Association Drying Equipment Branch, and organized by Tianhua Institute of Chemical Machinery & Automation, was successfully held in Nanjing, Jiangsu Province. The opening ceremony was hosted by Dr. Chai Benyin, Deputy General Manager of Shandong Tianli Energy Co., Ltd. 207 delegates from colleges and universities, research institutes, complete sets and supporting manufacturing enterprises, and user enterprises of drying industry attended the meeting, which reached the largest scale since the drying conference was held.
At the meeting, experts and scholars from scientific research institutes, universities and related enterprises in drying industry at home and abroad exchanged and discussed the latest progress, development trend, theoretical research and technological development achievements of drying technology and equipment at home and abroad around the theme of "green intelligence". It promotes the research and application of drying technology at home and abroad, strengthens academic exchanges and cooperation among peers, which has positive significance to help Chinese drying equipment manufacturers to learn the development trend of the industry, grasp the market trend, optimize market competition order, guide users to purchase equipment, and build the communication platform for drying equipment manufacturers, purchasing users and supporting equipment manufacturers.
On September 28th, the meeting arranged four sub-conferences, which were carried out in the professional direction of “drying process and equipment”, “drying theory research and simulation analysis”, “drying product quality analysis and experimental research”, “experimental research and review”by paper exchange and thematic discussion.
The “National Drying Conference”was initiated by the Drying Professional Group of CIESC and the first session was held in Nanjing in 1975. This session was co-sponsored the Drying Professional Group of CIESC and China General Machinery Association Drying Equipment Branch. It aims at the combination of research and engineering technology, which will attract more people from the business circles to study and communicate together, and promote the prosperity and development of China's drying technology research.
A total of more than 100 academic papers were included in the conference, among which, 94 papers were reviewed and accepted as conference exchange papers. They were divided into four subjects and were added to the "Chemical Machinery" magazine (the official publication of China). The conference invited famous scholars in the field of drying technology research and engineering to attend it and give reports.
