The future of food and water relies heavily on the global resilience and safety of the supply chains of materials, products and natural resources including clean energy. Achieving the sustainable provision of food and water globally is driving novel innovations in chemical engineering. Chemical engineers have played a significant role in providing safe food, clean water and sanitation to the increasing global population. In the current context of global energy crisis and increasing energy costs, chemical engineers working within the Food and Water sectors have an important role to play in developing a sustainable water-energy-food matrix. This webinar will draw upon the diverse experience of the panellists both within the food and water sectors to discuss how the chemical engineers of the future will play a vital role to address the complex mix of food-water-energy security issues. It will discuss how chemical engineers can improve food production, supply chain and distribution thereby minimising the environmental effects. It will also discuss how chemical engineers will play a key role in providing a safe and resilient drinking water supply, a shift towards net zero for water supply and wastewater treatment and developing technologies for recovering resources from the waste streams in the Water industry.
