By understanding the normal enrollment swings, employers and students can capitalize during the boom times and rideout the busts, while universities can allocate resources more effectively.
Ten lasting chemical engineering achievements — and 100 markers of chemical engineers’ progress toward them.
The first annual World Science Festival takes Manhattan by storm, with 120,000 people celebrating scientific diversity.
Use Exponential Functions to Correlate Temperature Dependence Asymptotic exponential equations may provide a more-accurate or easier-to-use representation of a property’s temperature dependence than commonly used polynomial expressions.
In honor of AIChE’s 100th birthday, we recognize two members who have each celebrated more than 100 birthdays.
To meet growing demand for solar energy, new polysilicon plants are being built at an unprecedented rate, and several new technologies will play a role in the capacity expansion.

While chemical companies work toward complying with existing standards, legislators are poised to revise those very rules — with changes ranging from minor tweaking to major overhaul on the table.
This special products section looks at some of today’s equipment and service offerings alongside product write-ups and ads from the past.
A properly selected, configured and installed fire and gas safety instrumented system can reduce a facility's risk and maintain operational integrity.

Despite its image as a dirty fuel, coal remains an economic choice for baseload power generation—and it can, in fact, have very low emissions.
When considering improvements to cooling towers, it's important to perform an economic analysis of the options.

These experimental and modeling techniques enable the rapid, cost-effective design and scale-up of biopharmaceutical manufacturing in an integrated fashion.
With the simplifying assumption that all of the noncondensable gases exit via the vapor stream, material balances and equilibrium calculations can be used to determine the compositions of the emissions streams leaving a control device.
