This month, CEP focuses on water. Water is required to produce energy, and energy is required to make use of water — the two are, and always will be, inextricably linked. Engineers must understand the water-energy nexus in order to manage both efficiently and sustainably.
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.
In March's CEP read about developing crystallization processes, applying Six Sigma for process improvement and problem-solving, and a SBE supplement on algal biofuels.
In February, read features on metamaterials, understanding stream traps, budget battles surrounding mechanical integrity, and more.
In January, read about improving flange joint reliability, computational science and enabling technology development, capital spending in the chemical industry, and avoiding natural gas piping hazards.
This month, CEP covers the topic of sustainability through eco-efficiency analysis and brings you a look at the subjects of chromatography for separating complex mixtures and heat integration for improved energy efficiency.
The United Nations General Assembly has declared 2011 the International Year of Chemistry (IYC 2011), a worldwide celebration of the achievements of chemistry and its contributions to the well-being of people everywhere...
You've probably heard some of the jokes about engineers - the engineer who figures out the problem with the guillotine before it's his turn to be executed; the engineer who puts the talking frog in her purse instead of kissing it because she doesn
My first exposure to bioengineering was watching The Six Million Dollar Man on television as a teenager.
Vernon Law, a retired major league baseball pitcher who played for the Pittsburgh Pirates in the 1950s and '60s, said, "Experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test fi rst, the lesson afterward."...
AIChE's international programs are growing. There are several reasons for this expansion of effort outside the United States. First, the strength of the U.S.
In this issue's cover story (pp. 23-27), retired energy executive and Princeton Univ. industrial lecturer Vern Weekman gazes into a proverbial crystal ball to get a glimpse of society's energy mix in the year 2050.
