CEP: May 2015 The four pillars of industrial energy efficiency — operational improvements, effective maintenance, engineered improvements, and new technologies — represent the types of opportunities that can boost plant performance and achieve excellence in energy efficiency across the CPI. Other topics in this issue include successful projects, chemical looping, the future of the lecture, and Turkey's chemicals industry. Editorial Much has been written about chemical engineering education, particularly what students should be taught to prepare them for a career as a chemical engineer. A major emphasis has been on identifying the knowledge and skills industrial employers expect their new hires to have. CEP has published several articles* on this topic recently, and many of you have shared your thoughts in letters to the editor. The discussions will continue, and we will continue to keep you apprised of AIChE’s activities in this area. What to teach is only one term in the equation, though. How to teach the material is another. That was the subject of last year’s Institute Lecture. Read more Share The Future of the Lecture May2015AIChE Journal HighlightEdward L. CusslerThe lecture is an important and indispensible tool for teaching undergraduate chemical engineering students. The electronics revolution will not dramatically change the basic structure of the lecture, but instead supplement and enhance what is being taught. Chemical Looping Rises to the Challenge May2015On The HorizonLiang-Shih Fan, Liang Zeng, Siwei LuoBy separating a reaction into several subreactions, chemical looping minimizes exergy loss, facilitates product separation, and provides flexibility in process design.
