I want to thank all of the nearly 4,000 members who took the time to thoughtfully respond to CEP's engineering ethics survey.
Each issue of CEP is packed with practical information you can apply to current or future projects. Gain insight on technical issues like safety, environmental management, fluids and solids handling, reactions and separations, information technology, and more. AIChE members have complete access to all issues online.
AIChE is pursuing a strategy that is changing the Institute's activities to assure continued relevance to chemical engineers of the future. As you all know - and as previous articles in CEP have documented (Jan.
According to statistics released by the National Science Foundation, U.S. R&D is projected to have increased from $276.4 billion in 2002 to $283.8 billion in 2003 - a mere 1% after accounting for inflation...
The profession of chemical engineering is changing more rapidly, and possibly more radically, than at any time in its history.

For the first time since the middle of 2002, the Dow Jones Industrial Average has passed the psychologically key 10,000 mark. Could this be a sign of overall economic recovery, including the chemical process industries?..
As a professional in the chemical industry, you've probably never considered the impact this sector can have on the educational success of students in this country.
The future is here - nanotechnology, once a blue-sky topic, is slowly becoming a reality. As Tim Harper, Cristina Roman Vas and Paul Holister of Cientifica Ltd. note in our 16-page nanotechnology supplement (pp.
You can't teach someone common sense, or can you? The principles of inherent safety, first formalized by Trevor Kletz quite some years ago, are purely based on common sense...
