CEP: November 2018

Energy efficiency plays a key role in helping manufacturers produce product at a designated quality, safely, for the least amount of money.

CEP: October 2018

As part of AIChE’s Centennial celebration in 2008, leaders from industry and academia and a group of graduate students and postdocs speculated about chemical engineering 25 years in the future.

CEP: September 2018

The epigenome is composed of modifications to DNA that determine which genes of the genome are expressed or suppressed without changing the DNA sequence. While your genome is fixed, your epigenome is dynamic and flexible and responds to environmental stimuli. Gaining a complete understanding of epigenetics is necessary to control genetic behavior.

CEP: August 2018

Economic operation of steam turbines requires choosing the right type and size of turbine and integrating it correctly with the heat exchanger network. This month's back to basics article describes the different types of steam turbines, offers design and rating calculations, and explains how to properly integrate turbines with the process. Other topics in this issue include: steam piping; scare tactics in safety communications; and capital projects and turnarounds.

CEP: July 2018

This month's article on designing inherently safer piping discusses regulations and standards that should be considred when designing a piping system and highlights elements of these codes and standards that are commonly overlooked.

CEP: June 2018

Deep learning is fueling what many believe will be the biggest technology revolution the world has seen. Chemical engineers routinely use computers for modeling, simulation, design, and optimization of chemical processes.

CEP: May 2018

Even though translational medicine has been defined in different ways, the central theme is using a multidisciplinary approach to translate novel scientific and technological findings from bench to bedside to address human health in an affordable

CEP: April 2018

Learn how to better estimate the space requirements for a pilot plant to ensure adequate space is allocated.

CEP: March 2018

Process intensification aims to dramatically improve manufacturing processes through the application of novel process schemes and equipment. This month's special section provides an introduction to process identification and discusses current industry trends and opportunities

CEP: February 2018

Part two in our three-part series on analyzing the performance of pump networks discusses energy efficiency measures and presents a new way to account for variation in pump efficiency.

CEP: January 2018

Flame arresters comprise a diverse array of safety devices, ranging from small, end-of-line units with threaded connections to massive, custom-built flanged behemoths weighing several tons. This month's Back to Basics article covers the basics of flame arresters to help prevent misapplications, which can have catastrophic results.

CEP: December 2017

This month's cover story presents an order-of-magnitude correlation for estimating the capital investment required for a shale-gas monetization plant.
