This conference will focus on the profound changes in industrial processes over the last twenty years. Processes have adapted to respond to four major developments:
- changes in demand, in particular for new materials with controlled use properties,
- increased flexibility requirements allowing different productions on the same industrial site,
- the need to limit the resources consumed,
- the limitation of environmental impacts.
The main objective of this conference will be to review the risks, benefits and prevention approaches linked to these recent changes in the industrial sectors particularly impacted by them, in particular, the food industry, chemical industry, pharmaceutical industry, mechanics, metallurgy, water treatment, waste management and recycling activities.
