Chromatography Solutions for Petrochemical Analysis

Aug 07 2015

The 2015 PEFTEC conference, held from 18th-19th November in Antwerp, Belgium, will be headed up by Tom Lynch and Dr Frank David.

Tom is from BP Fuels and Lubricants and also sits on the BP Science Council with over 35 years of experience in the petroleum industry. He specialises in delivering forensic, problem solving, and method development capabilities for BP globally.

Dr Frank David is R&D manager at The Research Institute of Chromatography. Dr David has authored over 100 papers and his expertise includes capillary gas chromatography (GC), supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC), GC coupled to mass spectrometry (GC–MS), high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), and liquid chromatography coupled to MS (LC–MS) as well as multidimensional chromatography (GC–GC, GC×GC, LC–GC).

These sessions will include topics on hyphenated techniques for petrochemical analysis; analysing petroleum derived products and problem solving with hyphenation; getting more from gas chromatography; chemical fingerprinting of crude oil; and novel detection technologies, which include developments in GC–MS for petrochemical applications.

Registration to the PEFTEC International Conference and Exhibition for Petroleum, Refining, and Environmental Analysis is now open, PEFTEC will be of interest and value to scientists, laboratory managers, chemists, and environmental regulators from the chemical, petrochemical, and oil industries to share information, network, learn about the latest methods, standards, and regulations for the industry.  

Early bird conference registration is open up until 14th October saving delegates 15% on conference fees, while those who wish to just visit the exhibition entry is free to the exhibition floor to meet with over 120 instrument and services suppliers and attend over 100 free  technical seminars.

Known for its beautiful old city, beer, chocolate, and diamonds, Antwerp was also chosen for its position at the heart of Europe’s biggest cluster of petrochemical industries - boasting the world’s top 10 largest chemical producers (either their supply chain or production facilities). Companies with major facilities in the Port of Antwerp include BASF, Air Liquide, Bayer, Monsanto, and 3M, with both Exxon Mobile and Total refineries located in the Port itself.
