Today is Day 357, meaning there are just nine days left to shine a light on chemical engineering. I thought today would be a good opportunity for me to select my nine favourite reasons why chemical engineering matters.
I really enjoyed the whiteboard messages that were written at the ChemEngDayUK 2015 conference held earlier this year in Sheffield, so I have chosen my favourite ‘I make a difference’ snapshots to share with you today.
Here are the nine people who use chemical engineering to make a difference:
1. Jon from the University of Bath who makes a difference “by providing safe water to developing countries”.
2. Elena from Loughborough University who makes a difference “by experimenting with crystal formation to improve pharma manufacture and drug delivery”.
3. Manuela from Imperial College London who makes a difference “by using wrinkles (at the nanoscale) to make optical components”.
4. Sergio from the University of Manchester who makes a difference “by improving the performance of paints and foodstuffs through better understanding of droplet size when mixing”.
5. Stephen from the University of Leeds who makes a difference “by developing more sustainable processes for treating minerals”.
6. Dipesh from the University of Hull who makes a difference “by converting waste into valuable industrial products”.
7. Katy from the University of Sheffield who makes a difference “by helping people understand the potential of CO2 utilisation”.
8. Rui from the University of Birmingham who makes a difference “by developing ways of making cheaper and better food quality”.
9. Wentian from UCL who makes a difference “by making the transport of CO2 though pipelines safe”.
