Agglomeration Advisor: Size enlargement challenge, step by step

Here's a hypothetical case: A company discovers a market demand for an upgraded product. The product was previously sold in powder form, but end users seem to prefer an agglomerated, granular shape for improved dispersion, better handling, and higher bulk density while retaining porosity. Unfortunately, the company has no prior experience in any form of size enlargement of this product. Where can it find out what it needs to know to successfully produce this product? Where should it go for research and background information? What informed sources should it consult, without running into dead ends and wasting a lot of time on unnecessary research?

Fortunately, today we have many more resources about basic and applied agglomeration than we did a few decades ago. Recent years have seen better textbooks, more seminars, university curriculae on the subject, and symposia, both nationally and internationally.

Here are some suggestions for research and study without taking too many detours.
