The American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) Institute for Sustainability is well positioned to establish a baseline definition of what Sustainability entails, as well as to establish a Body of Knowledge (BOK) in the field of sustainability. The body of knowledge at the heart of the new sustainability credential is based on AIChE’s Sustainability Index.
Sustainability & Environment
IfS is an umbrella organization encompassing a broad spectrum of activities related to sustainability. It has three sub-entities: the Sustainable Engineering Forum (SEF), the Center for Sustainable Technology Practices (CSTP), and the Youth Council on Sustainability Science and Technology (YCOSST). It also provides oversight to the AIChE Sustainability Index (sm).
The ENV division provides relevant programs on current environmental topics and non-confidential information concerning all aspects of environmental activity. The division promotes publication of papers of interest to chemical engineers in environmental activities as well as coordinates the Institute’s activities with other related societies.
The 2015 Carbon Management Technology Conference (CMTC) conference will draw professionals from all engineering disciplines to share their expertise and provide their perspectives on the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and adaptation to changing climate.
Maximizing efficient water use is critical for both the environment and the bottom line for industry. This workshop will bring together downstream production leaders and water tech experts to discuss water efficiency and water treatment solutions.
The workshop will address fundamental scientific and technological challenges in the utilization of pre-consumer organic waste as an alternative feedstock for the production of chemicals, polymers and additives as well as conversion to energy.
