Premier of ZELLCHEMING-Conference held prior to the ZELLCHEMING-Expo

Nov 7, 2019

Just before the start of the ZELLCHEMING-Expo, taking place from 24 - 25 June 2020 in Frankfurt am Main, the ZELLCHEMING e.V. will be holding a conference in Darmstadt for the first time. The new event complements the existing ZELLCHEMING event offering a science-focused platform.

The ZELLCHEMING Conference will be held from 21 – 24 June 2020 in Darmstadt with the title "Cellulose-based Materials – from Science to Technology". The association ZELLCHEMING e.V. is cooperating with its technical committees and the Technical University of Darmstadt to provide an international knowledge platform, which will bring together researchers from science and industry interested in topics related to polysaccharides, paper-based materials and bioeconomics.

The scientific program, created by invited speakers, ranges from polysaccharide chemistry and paper chemistry to paper physics and paper technology.

The proximity to Frankfurt am Main makes it possible for the attendees to visit the ZELLCHEMING-Expo trade fair following the conference. On 24 June 2020, a coach  will link the two locations so that participants can combine scientific knowledge with all the benefits of the exhibition, such as networking and gathering information on the latest trends and products.
