We would like to welcome you to the Euro Fed Lipid Congress 2016.
The event is hosted by the recently established BENELUX Lipid Network (BLN)
organization. This year, the congress is held in the modern International Conference Center (ICC) located in a vicinity of the museum district
and within walking distance to the historical centre of Ghent.
This city is a popular and traditional venue for organizing scientific meetings mainly due to the presence of Ghent University.
A high quality program featuring a number of keynotes and invited lectures has been designed by the Scientific Committee led by Karel Hrncirik
(Unilever) and Roland Verhe (UGent). The agenda of the congress reflects the division structure of Euro Fed Lipid; on top of that, the most
topical themes will be discussed in joint, cross-divisional sessions, which will enable addressing these themes in a comprehensive way.
Overall, the program provides a variety of opportunities to learn about the most recent developments around renewable resources, processing,
biotechnology, quality, nutrition and other aspects of oils and fats. Next to the update on recent scientific and technical matters, the
conference offers a number of opportunities for informal networking and lively discussions during the coffee and lunch breaks, receptions
and poster sessions.
We are convinced that the strong program we built is going to meet your demand for the know-how both in fundamental and applied research of
oils and fats and we carry on the success of previous Euro Fed Lipid meetings. We are looking forward to meeting you in Ghent not only to enjoy
inspiring scientific discussions, but also to experience this very unique destination

The congress dinner will take place at the Augustijnenklooster (Monastery of the Augustinian Fathers)
The monastery, founded 1295, is located in the historical centre of Gent, less than 10 minutes’ walking from the Korenmarkt, the Cathedral,
the Graslei and the Belfry. It is unique in Europe with more than 7 centuries of history. Even today monks are living and working in the monastery.
The heart of the building is a beautifully restored inner court, a real oasis of peace and calm.
The monks only recently opened the doors
of the splendid building, which is even a hidden jewel for local people.
In the cloisters you will discover monumental paintings.
The monastery also owns a historical and beautiful library with a unique book collection in an amazing setting. Last but not least the
monastery is a unique place for concerts with a monumental baroque organ built in 1873 by Jean-Philippe Forrest.

22th Annual Ringtest 2016
Organised by the German Society for Fat Science (DGF).
Interlaboratory comparison tests serve laboratories to check applied methods and to recognize systematic errors. They are a central part
of every quality assurance system.
The DGF herewith announces the 22th interlaboratory comparison test for fat analysis to be carried out in 2016.
31 parameters can be tested this year:
3-MCPD, 2-MCPD, Glycidylesters
Acid Value (Free Fatty Acids)
Polar components in used deep frying fats
Polymerised triacylglycerols in used deep frying fats
Tocopherol distribution, tocopherol content
Sterol distribution, total sterol content
Triacylglycerol distribution by GC
Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons
Vitamin E and A content
Fatty acid composition (C8-C24, including EPA, DPA and Trans)
Mineral Oil - Saturated Hydrocarbons
Lovibond Colour Index
UV Absorption K232, K270 (Olive Oil)
Pyropheophytine (Olive Oil)
Isomeric diacylglycerols (Olive Oil)
Methyl- and Ethylesters
Identification of an oil or of the components in a blend
Identification and determination of antioxidants
Vegetable Oil, Olive Oil and a Used Deep-Frying Oil. (150g each)
Each laboratory may choose an individual set of parameters from the list above.
The execution and the evaluation of the laboratory comparison test are carried out according to the internationally
recognized recommendations "Proficiency Testing Of Laboratories" of Codex Alimentarius and ISO.
The participation 270 Euro + VAT
