A joint symposium of:
 The 8th Sustainable Process Integration Laboratory (SPIL) Scientific Conference
CAPE Forum 2024 Computer Aided Process Engineering
 2nd International Scientific Conference on Cleaner Energy and Chemical Engineering for Sustainable Circular Economy: CLES-CE 2024

1 – 4 September 2024 (Hybrid), Brno, Czech Republic

The SPIL scientific conference was founded by Prof Jiří Jaromír Klemeš. The 8th SPIL conference will be held in conjunction on CAPE forum 2024. The conference serves as a networking platform for collaboration on sustainability research, particularly topics for the joint conference as listed:

  • Process Integration
  • Waste and wastewater management
  • Sustainable energy use and consumption
  • Energy efficiency of industrial and business processes
  • Waste to Energy
  • Energy storage
  • Renewable Energy and Utility System
  • Footprint minimisation and mitigation — applicable to environmental and health footprints
  • Cleaner production and Circular Economy
  • Technoeconomic and Life Cycle Assessment
  • Process analysis and modelling
  • Mathematical modelling and optimisation for sustainability improvement

But are not limited to the mentioned topics. Sustainable solutions, improving the process/conversion effectiveness, economical, environmental and social aspects, as well as policy implementation for environmental footprint mitigation, are within the interest of this conference.

The CAPE Forum 2O24 is organised by the Ukrainian Association of Chemical and Food Engineering (CFE-UA, Kharkiv, Ukraine) jointly with SPIL Laboratory at Brno University of Technology (BUT-Czech Republic). It will be held in Brno during 1— 4 September 2024. The theme of this CAPE event is “New Trends in Process Study, Modelling and Control”. Computer Aided Process Engineering (CAPE) Forum aims to bring together researchers and industrial practitioners for an informal discussion on research topics, new and emerging in the area of CAPE. The CAPE Forum is a series of yearly small-scale but highly interactive conferences organized under the supervision of the Computer-Aided Process Engineering Working Party (CAPE WP) of the European Federation for Chemical Engineering (EFCE). With a mixture of keynote lectures, workshops and young researchers’ presentations, the main goal is to discuss the role of CAPE tools as improvers to accelerate the quick changes that are occurring in the Process Industry.

The CLES-CE 2024 conference is an international, transdisciplinary platform focusing on cleaner ways of sourcing, transforming, transporting, delivering and using energy and useful products. Embedded in the scope is also the concept of Circular Economy – in terms of energy efficiency of systems with circular material flows as well as the energy recovery and reuse in industrial and processes within supply chains, urban and regional process networks. The Cleaner Energy Systems journal serves as a platform for addressing and discussing theoretical and practical issues concerning energy systems related to the reduction and elimination of negative impacts on the environment and human health, as well as the potential increase of natural and human capital.

Presented works (with active participation) in SPIL’ 24 will be invited to select (the choice will be evaluated and decided by editors) and submit their work to the Special Issue. World leading researchers will be invited as the Plenary Speaker or Guest of Honor to provide the up-to-date insight of their respective expertise.
