Meet Some of AIChE's New Fellows

Featured in the September 2018 print issue of CEP

Fellow candidates are nominated by their peers, and must have significant chemical engineering practice (generally 25 years), have demonstrated significant service to the profession, and have been a member of AIChE for at least 10 years. Here are some of the recently elected Fellows. More Fellows will be introduced in future issues of CEP.

Please see below to meet some of AIChE's recently elected fellows, who are also featured in the September print issue of CEP.

Richard D. Braatz
