    10th World Filtration Congress (WFC10)

    Filtration is the process of separating a solid from a liquid by straining it through a porous medium that can be penetrated easily.

    The organisers had found that several locations in Germany met the space requirements but the CCL was regarded as by far the best venue for many reasons.

    Having a strong focus on chemical and process engineering, the exhibition of the Congress displayed heavy machinery. This is why the direct access from the CCL congress facilities to the exhibition hall was considered a big advantage. Further requirements included eight parallel session rooms and a large hall for the opening Ceremony.

    Of particular interest to the filtration engineers were post-congress plant visits to Porsche, BMW, Stora Enso (paper mill), Vattenfall (power plant) and the Dow Chemical Company.

    The service and support from the CCL team was considered exceptional on all levels. The city provides excellent possibilities for travel and accommodation and Leipzig is a vibrant and exciting destination. One of the highlights of the congress was the party in the "Moritzbastei", the remains of a mediaeval fortress which is a unique venue and a superb event location in the city centre.

    Another good example of city cooperation was provided by the Leipzig Transport Society (LVB - Leipziger Verkehrsbetriebe) which offered a public transport ticket tailor-made to the needs of the WFC10 participants. It not only included free travel on trams and buses throughout the city, but also the fare to and from Leipzig airport.

    The official opening ceremony of the WFC10 was celebrated by the Lord Mayor of the City of Leipzig, Mr. Burghart Jung.

    "Leipzig was selected by the WFC10 organising committee as it meets the needs for a successful World Congress in every way."
