Revisiting the Future of Chemical Engineering

Some of the profession’s thought leaders share their visions of the future of chemical engineering.

On the Horizon

Introduction to Deep Learning: Part 2

A truly intelligent system is one that can learn on its own. This article delves into more-complex neural networks that underpin deep learning, the technology that is revolutionizing artificial intelligence.

Environmental Management

Consider Wet Scrubbers for Pollution Control

Three main types of wet scrubbers are used in the chemical process industries (CPI) to remove contaminants from gas streams. The differences and suggested applications for each are discussed here.

Reactions and Separations

Improve Regeneration of Adsorbent Beds

Evaluating adsorbent bed process design and regeneration procedures can provide opportunities for optimization, ultimately reducing operating costs and emissions.

Back to Basics

Implement Advanced Process Control

An advanced process control (APC) application is only as good as its weakest link. Ensure its stability from the ground up by building a solid foundation.
