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.
This webinar discusses the principal means for dealing with what has become a major environmental issue.
This webinar covers the subject from the forest to stack. The emphasis is on the tried and true, with diagrams and photographs of actual equipment and installations.
It is now clear that, for many reasons, corn has serious limitations as feedstock for biofuel production.
This presentation describes and evaluates the technical, political, and economic challenges involved with widespread adoption of renewable energy technologies.
Unprecedented volatility in the price of feedstocks and concerns over global warming have spurred the search for economically viable and environmentally sound alternatives. How are these forces impacting the chemical industry?
Modern life depends upon the availability of plentiful energy at reasonable cost. Life styles, industries, agriculture, health care all assume availability of energy on demand. Is this situation sustainable?
There are large uncertainties in the climate change debate that reflect the absence of the engineering community.
It is impossible to imagine modern life without the products provided by the petrochemical industry. These products are used in health care, consumer products, transportation, food processing, electronics, and construction.
