A s”TEP” ahead of the rest!
Who are we? And what do we do?
We are the “The Transport and Energy Processes (TEP) Division” of AIChE. Our charter is to promote the sharing of knowledge and experiences in the “fundamentals of transport phenomena and energy systems” across all traditional and emerging chemical engineering disciplines. The TEP division interest covers both practical and academic topics and both experimental and modeling related work. We believe that the broad interest in these topics is the best way for our entire community to develop a deeper understanding of the fundamentals of transport phenomena. The Transport and Energy Processes (TEP) Division reports on promising technologies being considered nationwide for pilot and demonstration scale development; for example, fuel cell systems capable of using a variety of fuels, and biofuel production facilities that use non-food, non-feed renewable feedstocks.
What does “transport” refer to?
Transport phenomena in chemical engineering covers the transport of mass, momentum and energy (including heat), and is present in all chemical and energy related processes. Transport impacts a broad area of topics, spanning conversion equipment such as chemical reactors, storage devices such as batteries, energy supply devices such as fuel cells, and many other emerging technologies that make processes more energy efficient and cleaner. Further, the scope of the Division extends beyond these applications
