4th North American Symposium on Chemical Reaction Engineering

Conference Overview

The 4th North American Symposium for Chemical Reaction Engineering (NASCRE 4) will take place in Houston, Texas, on March 10-13, 2019. The scientific theme for NASCRE 4 is "Making Boundaries Malleable: Advancing Reaction Engineering through New Materials, Unique Chemistries and Advanced Computation."

Chemical Reaction Engineering (CRE) is the discipline that quantifies the interactions of transport phenomena and kinetics in relating reactor performance to operating conditions and feed variables. This quantification requires a thorough understanding of the nanoscale (molecular level of scrutiny), micro- to mesoscale (transport and kinetic events at a particle level), and macroscale (reactor design in the context of process and plant design). CRE develops general principles useful in approaching a variety of systems (chemical, biochemical, biological, materials, environmental, electrochemical, etc.) where engineering of reactions is needed.

NASCRE 4 will feature over 150 oral and poster presentations that highlight advances and opportunities in key areas of CRE.

NASCRE 4 will be held at the Westin Galleria Houston. The uptown Galleria area is the region's center for energy commerce, upscale shopping, and fine dining. Conference attendees will enjoy an interactive environment to exchange the latest developments in chemical reaction engineering while enjoying the emergence of Spring along the Gulf Coast.
