AIChE and its publishing partner John Wiley and Sons, Inc. have announced the launch of a new quarterly, peer-reviewed journal, Journal of Advanced Manufacturing and Processing. Set to debut in Spring 2019, the new journal will focus on capturing leading-edge manufacturing techniques and technologies that reduce costs, save energy, and create solutions that address societal needs.

The journal’s editorial team is led by Editor-in-Chief Matthew Realff (Georgia Institute of Technology) and Deputy Editors Jan Lerou (Jan Lerou Consulting, LLC) and Michael Rinker (Pacific Northwest National Lab).

In announcing the new publication, June Wispelwey, Executive Director of AIChE, said “We are excited to create this platform for subject matter experts to share their knowledge and research and stay abreast of fast-moving developments, including technology breakthroughs and best practices.” She noted that the journal’s three-pronged focus — on chemical manufacturing and processing, smart manufacturing, and biological and biochemical manufacturing — will address topics as wide-ranging as process intensification, modularization, sensors and automation, additive manufacturing, nanofabrication, cell and tissue manufacturing, and biopharmaceutical processing, among others. “Our hope is that by showcasing the work of engineers and scientists in these diverse areas, the journal might serve as a catalyst to spur new interdisciplinary collaborations and even further advances in advanced manufacturing,” she added.

AIChE and Wiley have been partners since 2003, and, in addition to Journal of Advanced Manufacturing and Processing, publish five other journals (AIChE Journal, Bioengineering & Translational Medicine, Biotechnology Progress, Environmental Progress & Sustainable Energy, and Process Safety Progress) and a series of books.

Trinseo’s Support Expands AIChE’s Student Process Safety Workshops to China

AIChE and its Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS) are collaborating with Trinseo, a global materials provider, to host process safety workshops for undergraduate chemical engineering students in China. The workshops will be the first sessions in the AIChE/CCPS Undergraduate Process Safety Learning Initiative to be held outside the U.S. The partnership was announced in September at the 6th CCPS China Conference in Qingdao, China.

Chemical engineering students from several universities in China will be invited to participate in student workshops on risk-based process safety, which will be held in 2019 at Trinseo’s manufacturing site at Zhangjiagang, Jiangsu Province, China. The curriculum will combine process safety theory and real-world case studies taught by process safety experts from CCPS and industry. The China workshops will be presented by Byron Sun, a safety expert and CCPS staff consultant with...
