DGF-Continuing Education

3rd Course: “Crushing of Oil Seeds“

Munich, Germany, 13-14 September 2017
Held during Oils+Fats Exhibition

‘Nothing is more consistent as change’ and thus nothing is more consistent as the need for continuous education. This is also the case for oil milling. The requirements change continuously and become more and more demanding: not only on the input materials but as well as on the final products (key word: feed and food safety, MCPD, mineral oil…), on the process technology and the processes themselves – in terms of efficiency, safety and utilization.

These demands increase the complexity of processing and thus the needs on controlling processes, equipment, efficiency, quality, safety, environment, etc.

Delivering a sound understanding of the relevant interconnecting factors is the aim of these courses. After having successfully held these courses twice in German, the third course will be now be presented in English.

The DGF offers this course to newcomers, lateral entrants, but even old hands to transfer basic knowledge, but also to discuss new and actual topics with the participants and experts: As well as the fundamental current problems of daily oil mill operation will be discussed with the participants and solutions elaborated for practical usage - based on long year experience in engineering and operating oil mills. The course will have the character of a seminar – to pick up specific issues raised by the participants.

The working group ‘process technology’ of the DGF sees its role as a neutral body to collect and transfer knowledge on oil processing. It consists of many senior experts from operations and engineering in this area. Enabling the connection of science, engineering as well as operations.

We invite all inquisitive ‘lipophils’ to participate in this course. Every participant will receive the presentations in electronically.
