Catalysis and Reaction Engineering Division (CRE)

Focusing on applications to catalysis and reaction engineering.

AIChE members with interests in catalysis, industrial and engineering chemistry, fuel chemistry and petroleum should join the CRE division. In addition to developing the technical program for AIChE's national meetings, the division serves as an information exchange for knowledge of technical publications, computer programs, databases, catalysis and reaction engineering research centers, networks and programs.

CRE encourages chemical engineering educators to highlight and develop appropriate curricular material, as well as foster research and development in this area.
