Chemical engineers over the number of years have influenced the developments in the Built Environment and Transport sectors, whether it is providing safe and sustainable built environment for the growing population or revolutionising the way we move and transport people and goods. Within built environments, chemical engineers play a vital role from developing innovative materials of construction, improving energy efficiency and safety of buildings, through to improving access and delivery of clean water and wastewater treatment. Within the Transport sector, chemical engineers have contributed to producing and refining fuels for transportation such as crude oil which propelled the industrial growth of the 20th century, since it enabled the transport of large quantities of goods at lower cost and reduced time. This webinar discussed the role of chemical engineers in developing sustainable zero carbon solutions within these sectors for the future. It drew upon the diverse experience of the panelists to discuss how chemical engineers of the future will contribute to addressing the major challenges for the future smart cities and built environment. It also discussed how chemical engineers are responding to the challenge of decarbonising the transport sector with zero carbon alternatives such as hydrogen and the key challenges to address them.
