The workshop introduces the chemical product design and the process design issues related to their development. It will highlight the phases in product and process development; the relationships between product attributes, ingredients and product microstructure as well as the view from economical perspective. The latest available methods and tools will be introduced to solve various types of cases associated with product-process design in a systematic manner.
