This reinvention must lead to a new relationship between human and nature, which is not extractive but enriching; and is not consumption centric but conservation centric.
In order to achieve such a transformation across industries such as aerospace to energy & electronics, chemicals to textiles, and cosmetics to pharmaceuticals, Chemical Engineering has a strategic role to play.
