The Antwerp Expo in Belgium will host a major international petrochemical industry event on 18th and 19th November. PEFTEC 2015 will include a comprehensive conference and seminar programme in addition to an exhibition featuring all of the world’s leading organisations involved with analytical testing and monitoring for process control, research and development, environmental monitoring, occupational safety and quality control in the petroleum and petrochemical sectors.

PEFTEC 2015 was created to provide the petrochemical industry with an opportunity to discover the latest information on testing and monitoring, in the laboratory, in the field and on-site. Visitors will be able to choose from a wide variety of presentations covering topics such as Analytical Standards, Quality Assurance, Regulation, Analytical Techniques, Process and Environmental Monitoring.

Organiser Marcus Pattison says: “We have been overwhelmed with the level of enthusiasm for this event. Our request for papers and presentations resulted in a deluge of offers, and the exhibition sold out in record time.

“The Conference and Seminar programmes are packed with an enormous variety of subjects, covering almost every conceivable subject within this sector. However, it is particularly pleasing to note the comprehensive nature of the Exhibitor list, because this will provide the petrochemical industry with a unique opportunity to see the entire testing industry in one place at the same time.”

Broadly speaking, the themes of the Conferences and Seminars are:




Environmental Monitoring, Process Monitoring & Regulation

Laboratory Analysis

Free Seminars

Laboratory Analysis

Environmental Monitoring, Process Monitoring & Regulation

Urging visitors to attend on both days, Marcus Pattison says: “With so many different subjects to choose from, we have designed the programme to ensure that the subject matter of the Conference presentations does not compete with Seminars. As a result, registered visitors will be able to take advantage of the entire technical programme by planning both days carefully in advance.”

Speaker and abstract details are available for all of the Conference and Seminar presentations at The cost of attending the Conference is €125 + VAT per day before 14th October and €175 + VAT after this date. Registration is also available from the event’s website. Registered visitors will be provided with free access to the Exhibition and all of the PEFTEC Seminars.

The free-to-attend PEFTEC Seminars will take place in the 8 seminar rooms that will be located in the Exhibition Hall. Over 80 Seminars will be available offering the latest help and advice on almost every issue relating to detection, monitoring and analysis in the petrochemical sector. Most of the Seminars will be given by experts from the exhibiting organisations, so the subject matter will be application and technology driven.

With over 120 international laboratory and process monitoring equipment suppliers and analytical service providers, representing more than 220 organisations worldwide, the PEFTEC Exhibition represents a truly unique opportunity to see the entire market sector under one roof at the same time. All of the key analytical and monitoring technologies will be on display, in addition to a large number of new technologies and products, many of which are being launched at PEFTEC. Registered visitors will be able to see new products and services on the stands of JULABO, Zematra, Omnitek, Aavos, Biolin Scientific, Paragon Scientific, Reagecon, Block Engineering, RAE Systems, FLIR Systems, SERES Environnement, Galvanic, Grabner Instruments and Analytical Flow Products.

Markes International, Gradko Environmental, Hatech gas detection and Ion Science will all launch new products in response to recent initiatives in the United States to lower exposure to VOCs at refineries.

“It is great to learn about so many new technologies being launched at PEFTEC,” says Marcus Pattison, “because the great strength of events such as this, is their ability to surprise, educate and inspire visitors; if you search on the internet you will probably find what you are looking for, but if you come to PEFTEC, you will learn about the latest regulations, methods and technologies, and you might find what you didn’t know you needed!”
