ENV | Environmental Division | AIChE

The Environmental Division provides a venue for understanding and addressing our environmental challenges through the design and development of products, process plants, and creative solutions. We also encourage chemical engineering educators to place an emphasis on protecting our environment.  

Environmental Division Endowment Fund

We’re pleased to announce the Environmental Division Endowment Fund. The fund will support the Lawrence K. Cecil Award in perpetuity. The Cecil award recognizes an AIChE member for their outstanding chemical engineering achievements in the preservation or improvement of the environment. Our goal is to raise $50,000. Join us with your gift today!

Environmental Progress & Sustainable Energy Journal

Environmental Progress & Sustainable Energy is a publication of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers reporting on critical issues of the environment, including remediation and treatment of solid or aqueous wastes, air pollution, sustainability, and sustainable energy. Published six times a year, each issue helps engineers and scientists stay on top of technological advances in all areas associated with the environment primarily through peer-reviewed technical manuscripts, short letters, or review articles.

The AIChE Environmental Division is a great diverse and inclusive community of professionals and students addressing and leading multidisciplinary solutions to current environmental socio-economic challenges. Our division provides a great networking and partnership platform to share ideas and initiatives for your professional growth and others.

AIChE's Environmental Division is a welcoming community that offers me an opportunity to meet with experts from other academic institutions, industry, and government. This broad perspective fosters collaboration and the development of new ideas. It also helps me learn about real-world challenges that inspire my research.
