Chem-E-Car Competition® Rules

2018 Regional Chem-E-Car Competition® Rules  

As part of AIChE's commitment to safety in industry and laboratory environments, student teams and their advisors will be asked to demonstrate a commitment to safety awareness, safety planning, and safe practices as a standard component of their participation. All teams are required to carefully read and review all Chem-E-Car Competition documents to fully understand the requirements to safely compete at an AIChE Chem-E-Car Competition.

Please note that that In order to accommodate the increasing amount of teams that compete in the competition at the Annual Student Conference, the AIChE Chem-E-Car Rules Committee is currently evaluating format changes to reduce the time of the competition at the 2018 AIChE Annual Student Conference in Pittsburgh, PA. Any format changes will be formally announced to all teams who qualify for this competition. There will be no formatting changes at the 2018 Regional Chem-E-Car Competitions in the Spring.

Please download all of the following documents, you will need all of these documents to prepare for the competition.  The Official Rules has a milestones checklist to help your team stay on track.
