Practical Solutions for Process and Maintenance Engineers

ERTC: Ask the Experts is a new event giving process and maintenance engineers a platform to ask their burning questions about the everyday challenges they face in the plant and hear the practical solutions from industry experts.


With five major themes addressed, engineers will put forward questions and challenges that they are facing in their plant.
Through new, interactive and innovative formats including Q&A Fishbowl Panels, Workshops and Poster Sessions, process and maintenance engineers will understand how to select and apply technology.

Refinery Manager and Managing Director of Gunvor Ingolstadt Raffinerie, explains why Gunvor are supporting ERTC: Ask the Experts:
“We think the way the conference is set up can make a difference, there are no long or exhausting presentations, but rather roundtables, panels, etc.. All of this is rather proactive talking & direct contact with experts, which requires on the spot input from all involved to make it efficient.

In order to develop further, we believe networking, co-operations & sharing of information are most important to extend knowledge & experience for the engineers”

ERTC: Ask the Experts will be held at Komed Im Mediapark, Cologne, Germany
