The first Middle East Process Engineering Conference and Exhibition (MEPEC) is scheduled for October 23 to 26 at the Gulf International Convention Centre in Manama, Bahrain. Organized by the Saudi Arabian Section of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) and the Bahrain Society of Engineers, the meeting will offer practical approaches to performance and innovations in the process industries, particularly upstream and downstream activities in oil, gas and petrochemicals.
The American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) and DECHEMA, the German Society for Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology, are co-sponsoring the first Global Conference on Energy Sustainability in the Process Industries from June 5 to 8 at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.
WASHINGTON The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency awarded grants today to six college teams across the country who participated in the 7th annual EPA People, Prosperity and the Planet (P3) award competition held at the National Sustainable Design...
Biotechnology Progress, a bimonthly journal published for the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) and its Society for Biological Engineering (SBE) by John Wiley & Sons, is offering a new annual prize for excellence in publications in biological engineering.
Chemical engineers are working to find solutions for many global problems, including clean energy and water. Those topics, along with improved safety of chemical plants and processes, will be featured at this year’s Spring Meeting of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers and 7th Global Congress on Process Safety.
To facilitate collaboration across borders--both national and disciplinary ones—the Engineers Forum on Sustainability, has launched a new web site: http://efs.aiche.org . The site uses the latest communication technologies, including social media, to improve the dissemination of information on sustainable development. Its development has been underwritten by a grant from the United Engineering Foundation.
The increasing importance of issues surrounding water supplies and their sustainability has led the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) to launch a new water initiative. Its initial focus will be on determining the optimal roles and approaches for chemical engineers addressing water access, purification and sanitation, and the “water-energy nexus,” the relationship between the energy footprint of water and the water footprint of energy.
The American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) announced that Maria K. Burka, program director in the Chemical, Bioengineering, Environmental and Transport Systems Division of the National Science Foundation in Arlington, Virginia, will become president of the 40,000 member organization in 2011.
In a ceremony during its Annual Meeting in Salt Lake City last week, the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) presented its Sustainable Energy Award to the UOP-ENI Biologically-based fuels team. The award, which was first presented in 2009, recognizes individuals, teams or companies who have made a significant contribution toward alternative energy development, generation and use.
