American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE)


AIChE’s Spring Meeting and 8th Global Congress on Process Safety is expected to draw nearly 2,000 chemical engineers with lectures, 9 topical conferences and hundreds of technical sessions.  The Spring Meeting keynote address on Monday, April 2 will feature Michael J. Dolan, Senior Vice President of ExxonMobil Corporation. Dolan’s speech, “Process Safety and Corporate Responsibility” ties together safety and sustainability, two of the major topics of the spring meeting.
The Global Congress on Process Safety covers the critical needs of process safety practitioners more broadly and deeply than any other conference.
