The Transport and Energy Processes (TEP) Division reports on promising technologies being considered nationwide for pilot and demonstration scale development; for example, fuel cell systems capable of using a variety of fuels, and biofuel production facilities that use non-food, non-feed renewable feedstocks. In addition, opportunities for alternative fossil fuels continue to draw significant interest.
Focusing on the broad field of heat transfer, the AIChE Transport and Energy Processes Division coordinates meetings and conferences that provide opportunities for engineers and scientists to exchange ideas, experiences and evaluations. This division also coordinates the institute’s activities with other societies connected to the field.
TEP Mission Statement
