Design for Formulation: Products and Processes

Two-day Training Workshop: 19th-20th September 2017

  • Proper design of formulated products – and of the processes used to make them – brings significant benefits to companies. Good design can:
  • Help to get your product to market more quickly;
  • Lead to more robust products and processes – reducing the risk of rejects and complaints;
  • Reduce the requirement and risk for capital expenditure at the manufacturing stage;
  • Help you achieve successful scale up from lab to plant;
  • Reduce your costs in manufacturing and product/process development;
  • Improve relationships with suppliers and customer;
  • Help you understand your formulation better – and help you design next generation products more effectively.


Webinar: Physical Stability of Agrochemical Formulations

Free Webinar 13 June 2017

Presented by: Dr. Martin Viertelhaus, BASF SE, Germany

Formulation development is the art of making stable formulations that become unstable when they need to deliver the active ingredient. However, until the formulation is applied, stability is crucial to meeting the set specification. The physical stability of the formulation is an important parameter during formulation development, especially when testing multiple phase systems such as suspensions or emulsions. The attributes relevant to physical stability can include appearance, colour, viscosity, crystallisation and solubility behaviour.

During this free webinar, brought to you by Technobis Crystallisation Systems, we will take you through the essentials of physical stability of formulations, covering topics such as stability testing, observation of eutectics, crystal growth and agglomeration. Then we will explore how these topics are practically related to the physical stability of agrochemical formulations.



An Introduction to Agrochemical Formulation Strategies

October 2017, London UK (tbc)

Once again we are pleased to be delivering this course on behalf of ATI. The highly interactive 2-day course explores key scientific and regulatory developments currently influencing agrochemical formulation strategies and will act as a broad introduction to the area.

Through a combination of theory and practical exercises you will examine current industry trends and navigate EU & US regulatory requirements for compliant formulations. You will assess the advantages and disadvantages of specific formulation strategies from initial development through to manufacturing and application of the final product.

New for 2017: An online version of the Agrochemical Formulation Strategies course is now available from ATI. See


HSP50: Fifty Years of Hansen Solubility Parameters

5th – 7th April 2017, University of York, UK

Charles Hansen’s Solubility Parameters (HSP) have been adopted by many industries as a vital formulation tool. The HSP approach first appeared in 1967 and has been applied to pigments, art restoration, nanoparticles, pharma formulations, agrochemicals, cosmetics, green chemistry and more. They are now more popular than ever, used by industry and academia all over the world, in large part thanks to the HSPiP (Hansen Solubility Parameters in Practice) software, eBook and datasets.

We are pleased to announce that to celebrate 50 years of HSP, the HSPiP team are holding a special conference hosted at the University of York’s Green Chemistry Centre of Excellence from 5th to 7th April 2017.

Charles Hansen reflects on fifty years of HSP in a short article here.

Full conference information is available here and registration is available here. To express your interest in presenting a paper or displaying a poster at HSP50 – please email


Spray Drying and Atomisation of Formulations

28th – 30th March 2017, University of Leeds, UK.

This unique and popular CPD course, developed in 2014 and repeated in 2015 and 2016, will be run again in 2017. It will be delivered once again via academic and industrial presentations, demonstrations, theory and real industrial case studies. Day one will focus on the underlying principles of Spray Drying and Atomisation of Formulations and will include practical demonstrations. On the second and third days, a variety of speakers will show examples of how the science has been applied in industry.
