The current global economic meltdown, along with imbalances in energy ecology and equity, imply that the fundamental backbone of the global industrial world needs reinventing. 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. It can lead the way in reconfiguring conventional processes with new technologies - such as nano, bio, opto, info - while also giving them a higher level purpose. Such a resolve will also enable us to repurpose our agricultural sector, not only as source of food but as the source of a full range of new materials. These materials could serve as alternative renewable resources for construction, chemicals & drugs, energy, polymers, pharmaceuticals, and fibers.
