Chemical Engineering Matters, IChemE’s technical strategy, outlines the impact of the chemical engineering discipline in the 21st century. The report describes the thinking behind everything that IChemE is doing to support its members and promote the profession internationally.
It is intended to provoke debate and stimulate activity and engagement both within the profession and beyond it.
The strategy addresses four key challenge areas facing society and the world today:
- food and nutrition
- health and wellbeing
It outlines the scope, application and implications for chemical engineering in a series of ‘vistas’ examining activity across these four areas. You can view the ‘vistas’ on water, energy, food and wellbeing here.
Now in its second edition, Chemical Engineering Matters reflects member feedback and reports on progress made since it was first published in 2013.
Significantly, it identifies eight priority action areas for IChemE. These actions will underpin the institution’s work programmes in the years ahead.
