According to the project work objectives there were the following four aims to be achieved in the second year of the project extension:

1. Carrying out validation of drying tests in the counter-current spray drying tower

2. Carrying out experimental small-scale drying kinetics tests on selected products

3. Comprehensive validation of the CFD model for scaling-up spray drying process in co- and counter-current system

4. Carrying out experimental investigations to identify the effect of initial process parameters (feed properties, feed rate, air flow rate, drying temperature, atomization parameters) on the final product properties (porosity, bulk density, solubility, etc.)
