Industry Technology Groups

AIChE Industry Technology Groups allow industry, academia and government representatives to collaborate and leverage resources for research, technology transfer and other activities. They include the Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS), Society for Biological Engineering (SBE), the Institute for Sustainability (IfS), the Center for Energy Initiatives (CEI), Safety and Chemical Engineering Education (SAChE), Design Institute for Emergency Relief Systems (DIERS), and Design Institute for Physical Properties (DIPPR).

Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS)

CCPS is a not-for-profit, corporate membership organization within AIChE that identifies and addresses process safety needs within the chemical, pharmaceutical, and petroleum industries. 

Society for Biological Engineering (SBE)

The Society for Biological Engineering (SBE), an AIChE Industrial Technology Group, is a global organization of leading engineers and scientists dedicated to advancing the integration of biology with engineering.

Institute for Sustainability (IfS)

IfS is an AIChE Industrial Technology Group that multidisciplinary scientific and technical rigor to sustainability discussions and encourages the incorporation of sustainability concepts in engineering education.

Center for Energy Initiatives (CEI)

The Center for Energy Initiatives is an AIChE Industrial Technology Group devoted to the development, design and efficient use of energy by chemical engineers and related professionals.

Safety and Chemical Engineering Education (SAChE)

The Safety and Chemical Engineering Education (SAChE) program, initiated in 1992, is a cooperative effort between the
Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS) and engineering schools to provide teaching materials and programs that bring
elements of process safety into the education of undergraduate and graduate students studying chemical and biochemical
products and processes.
