About the Book
Particle Technology has emerged as a separate discipline in its own right; a body of knowledge which has its own unique paradigm of describing, modelling and controlling phenomena involving a wide variety of discrete entities and their interaction with the medium. Knowledge and expertise in particle technology is extremely important for several industries such as mineral processing and metal extraction, powder metallurgy, cement, drugs and pharmaceuticals, fertilizers, chemicals, detergents and paints and pigments. Considering the importance of this field to our industry, a number of experts in particle science and technology worldwide, in particular from Japan and other Asian countries took the initiative of starting the Asian Particle Technology (APT) Series of symposia.

This proceedings is comprised of 201 plenary, keynote, oral and poster papers by authors from 23 countries and regions, covering not only the Asia Pacific regions but also around the world. The technical papers are divided into the following themes:
• Production of Particles (Crystallization, Atomization, Mechanical Activation, Synthesis in Aerosol Flame, Sol-gel and Microemulsion Reactors)
• Comminution (Crushing, Grinding, High Energy Milling, Attrition and Erosion)
• Agglomeration (Granulation, Pelletization, Briquetting, Tableting, Sintering)
• Bulk Powder Handling (Storage, Dust Collection and Transportation)
• Mixing, Granular Flow and Fluidization
• Roasting, Combustion and Smelting Reduction
• Solid-solid and Solid-liquid Separation (Gravity, Electrostatic, Magnetic and Flotation Separation, Filtration, Drying, Membrane Separation, Thickening)
• Colloidal Processing (Dispersion, Flocculation and Rheology of Suspensions)
• Particle Coating and Surface Modification
• Packing and Consolidation of Particles in Dry/Wet Conditions
• Recycling and Reclamation (Electronic Waste, Tailings Management, Eco-cements)
• Design of Equipment Handling Powders, Emulsions and Aerosols
• Modelling and Simulation (CFD, DEM, Population Balances, Molecular Modelling, Monte Carlo)
• Process Optimization and Advanced Control (Measurement, Automation and Soft-sensors)
• Process Analytical Technologies (PAT), In-process Particle Characterization Techniques
• Pharmaceutical Particles and Drug Delivery Systems
• Others / M3TC Workshop

Readership: Undergraduates and graduate students, practicing engineers and researchers in Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering.
