Introduction to microencapsulation

Course overview

SwRI is hosting an Introduction to Microencapsulation two-day workshop. This workshop will introduce participants to microencapsulation and nanoencapsulation. Major common encapsulation techniques and formulations will be presented, along with examples, equipment, strengths, weaknesses, and state of the art. Additional aspects of encapsulation to be discussed include materials, process scale, and application examples.

Participants will tour the encapsulation facilities at SwRI to observe examples of encapsulation equipment to supplement discussions. The course is intended for scientists, engineers, or business professionals interested in learning about common and emerging encapsulation technologies.


The course cost is $950 USD per registrant. Visit to register. Registration includes two days of course instruction, training material provided to download, facility tour, lunch, and process demonstrations.
